3 Easy Hearty Breakfast
We have all heard the saying that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. But there are still many of us that have breakfast on the go or even skip it completely.
They are however some nutritionists who believe that you believe you are better off skipping breakfast than eating a healthy one. Controversial considering the number of years.
We have all been bombarded with information telling us to eat breakfast in the morning to stop you snacking during the day, that children who eat breakfast perform better in exams and at school than those who don’t and that eating breakfast in the morning can help you prevent a sugar slump later on in the day.
I am definitely proof that this is not the case as I have been known to start feeling dozy around 1 o’clock in the afternoon if I have a fully cooked breakfast.
If you are a highly active individual, perhaps a soft person who spends some of their day watching rugby drill videos like those found on you will know better than most the importance of good nutrition.
So if we prescribe to the notion that having something to eat for breakfast is the right thing to do there are 3 foods that are deemed to be the best and healthiest things to get you going in the mornings.
They are considered to be one of the best things you can have for breakfast be they boiled, poached, or scrambled. This is due in part to the healthy nature of eggs themselves.
A breakfast rich in eggs is thought to help you feel fuller for longer, reduce your desire for a high-calorie lunch, and can even help you maintain a steady blood sugar level meaning that you are less likely to feel the effect of an 11 am or 2 pm sugar crash.
According to cohort studies in which nearly 40,000 men and over 80,000 women participate and research found that consuming one egg per day is not harmful to health as it’s not increased heart disease risk [Source: https://www.hsph.harvard.edu/nutritionsource/food-features/eggs/]
This type of yogurt is not only tasty but also highly nourishing as it contains a concentrated amount of protein which helps to curb the feelings of hunger.
Protein also has what is known in the exercise and nutrition world as a ‘thermic effect’ which means that it helps to increase the body’s metabolic rate after eating.
We all know about the healthy gut benefits of eating live yogurt and some types of Greek yogurt contain sources of good probiotics.
This is the best option for people who prefer a cereal-based breakfast as it is made from ground oats and as such contains a type of fibre known as ‘viscous fibre’ which helps to promote the feeling of fullness.
Oats can also help decrease blood pressure and help to promote a healthy heart as they are rich in antioxidants.
So there are just 3 options for a healthy, nourishing, and tasty breakfast to kick-start your day.
