When we were children, our moms/dads/grandmas had told us that we must eat our breakfast. And they said it for a good reason! Because breakfast is the most important meal of the day. So let’s talk about 5 delicious and nutritious breakfasts.
Studies show that people who eat breakfast, feel more energetic during the day, work of their brain and memory are much better. The index of their body weight is normal, which indicates that these people are not overweight and they’re in good physical shape. In addition, balanced breakfast is essential for maintaining optimal blood sugar level, and it affects our tiredness.
“Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, and dinner like a pauper”, – Adelle Davis
So, let’s talk about healthy breakfast. It should contain a balanced number of the most important nutrients – proteins, carbs, and fats. Proteins help us to feel cheerful and full of energy, carbohydrates provide us with energy for the whole morning, and fats support a proper absorption of nutrients.
The best sources of protein are eggs, milk, yogurt, beans and lean meats. Carbohydrates and useful for our body, especially those in whole grain cereals, such as oatmeal, whole grain bread, and fruits. Among carbohydrates, we should choose those with a lot of fiber. These carbohydrates are a big source of energy, thus we will be satisfied longer. A small amount of butter, olive oil or flaxseed oil will provide you with the necessary quantity of fat for proper metabolism.
The next ones are the variants of breakfast.
There is a lot of recipes for breakfast, but we want to mention 5 delicious and nutritious breakfasts.
1.Oatmeal. It’s the most recommended to eat whole grain cereals and groats. If you like oat cereals, then choose the less processed, because they contain more fiber. However, if you enjoy eating the extra gentle oatmeal, try not to sweeten it with sugar, better use honey or fruits.
2.Fried egg. As noted above, eggs are an excellent source of protein. To make it even tastier add whole wheat bread toast and vegetables.
3. Omelette. Gentle omelette with cheese is very tasty and healthy. We recommend to cook it by the recipe of famous chef Jamie Oliver. Vegetables and herbs are perfectly suited for this breakfast.
