Today I wanted to focus on the importance of a good healthy breakfast and encourage you to embrace it as a healthy habit. You wake up in the morning after a good night’s sleep, that’s already about 6-9 hours without food. Think of it like this, you just drove all night and guess what? You have run out of fuel. That’s exactly how our body feels.
Adelle Davis said “As I see it, every day you do one of two things: build health or produce disease in yourself.”
This is such a true sentence. We are responsible for what we feed our bodies. So let’s discuss the importance of a healthy breakfast.
Importance Of A Healthy Breakfast
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day because it keeps us full until lunch hence we won’t overeat later or snack on rubbish to block that hunger. It gives us energy, keeps us focused and concentrated on the tasks at hand. Think of it as a real boost.
In addition, it:
- Restores glucose levels which is needed for our brain to function.
- A full stomach will keep us less agitated.
- It’s a great time for some family time before everyone goes about their day.
- While making those meals yourself, you’ll get the advantage of knowing exactly what you put in.
Just because we now know that it’s good for us doesn’t mean that we can eat as much as we want. Everything in moderation.
Healthy Breakfast Ideas
Some healthy breakfast ideas could be:
A small salad with one kind of fermented vegetable cut up, a slice of whole wheat bread with a boiled egg.
Homemade granola with yogurt.
A smoothie bowl of your choice with fresh fruit, nuts and almond milk or rice.
So there you have it, if you have a big appetite or can’t think of food in the morning, I’m sure you’ll find something that’ll suit you.
Until next time,
Have A Bright Day xx
