3 Energizing Breakfast Foods to Conquer Your Morning MS Fatigue

You wake up every morning exhausted. How can you possibly get through the day and accomplish the things you need to do? You get the recommended amount of sleep and you aren’t overdoing it throughout the day. Yet, you still struggle with morning MS fatigue.

The key to an energetic day may lie in your breakfast choice. Instead of grabbing a donut (or worse, skipping breakfast entirely), try these energizing breakfast foods to conquer your morning MS fatigue.

Berry Parfait

Layer your favorite flavor of greek yogurt, fresh or frozen berries, and a high fiber cereal (I love bran flakes) to create an easy energizing breakfast. This is just as fast as a bowl of cereal, but much healthier.

How it conquers your morning MS fatigue

Greek yogurt is full of protein and healthy fats to sustain you throughout the day. The high fiber cereal will last longer in your system than simple carbohydrates. The berries add sweetness to the breakfast without causing a sugar spike so you don’t have to worry about crashing later.

Spinach Omelette

Scramble up some eggs (use the whole egg because egg yolks contain Vitamin D) and cook them in coconut oil. Throw in as much spinach as you’d like and a little bit of cheese. Of course, you can add other vegetables if you’d like. This breakfast takes a little longer, but it is well worth it.

The eggs are a perfect protein, and the coconut oil contains healthy fats. Together, they will keep you full longer. The spinach contains essential fatty acids (which may benefit people with MS because they affect the central nervous system) and calcium to keep your bones strong even if you are taking steroids.

Overnight Oatmeal

Mix steel cut oats with your favorite greek yogurt at night and throw it in the refrigerator. By morning, the oats will have gotten soft because they soak up the yogurt. Throw some fruit on top, and you’ve got a great breakfast in no time. You can eat your overnight oatmeal cold or heat it up in the microwave.

Once again, greek yogurt is full of protein and healthy fats. Combined with the high fiber oats, you’re hitting all the major energy calories. This meal will keep you energized all morning and well into the afternoon.


Okay, so this isn’t actually a breakfast, but it is something you should be drinking as soon as you wake up. Many people with MS have trouble with bladder control so they don’t drink enough water. But dehydration is one of the biggest causes of fatigue! Drink a glass of water when you wake up, and you will feel energized much more quickly. Don’t forget to drink water throughout the day to keep your energy level up.

Breakfast really is the most important part of the day, especially for those of us suffering with MS. With these three energizing breakfasts up your sleeve (and that important glass of water), you will be well on your way to conquering your morning MS fatigue.
