The benefits and recipes for making the perfect breakfast
Breakfast, no doubt, is the most important meal of the day. You can sometimes skip lunch or dinner, but breakfast, by no means. This is what my post is about today.
The fact is that during the night’s sleep, our body also actively works and uses up energy, and a full breakfast is needed precisely in order to replenish these energy reserves. In addition, many studies show that people who eat breakfast regularly are sick far less frequently, have stronger immune systems and live longer than those who do not eat breakfast at all. In addition, skipping morning meals significantly increases the risk of cardiovascular diseases and diabetes. A big plus of eating breakfast is that in the morning you can eat almost everything, that is, you don’t need to check the calories or sugar content in foods since it is in the morning that the body should receive approximately 40% of our daily calorie intake.
So what exactly should we eat for breakfast? There are many opinions, one perfect breakfast for everyone does not exist, the most important thing is that your breakfast is healthy, has a high-calorie content and is balanced because it will serve as our energy source for the whole day.
So, we turn to the best options for your morning meal. Many people think oatmeal is an excellent breakfast. It’s true, oatmeal is full of carbohydrates, minerals and vitamins, which makes it one of the best options for your breakfast. In addition, it is easily absorbed by the body and does not cause any discomfort associated with the stomach or intestines. People who eat oatmeal on a regular basis are active and energetic, they do not feel hungry for a long time and feel great. Other types of cereals are well suited for breakfast: buckwheat, millet, wheat, corn, because all cereals are carbohydrates and carbohydrates are the main source of our energy. In addition, cereals are very nutritious, because they have many useful substances, they are well absorbed by the stomach and reduce the risk of various diseases.
But not all people are used to starting their day by eating cereal. Many, for some reason, do not like breakfast cereal or do not eat cereal at all. Another good breakfast option would be bacon and eggs or scrambled eggs with vegetables. Eggs are also very beneficial as they are an excellent and affordable source of protein, and in egg yolks a large amount of useful vitamins and minerals that are simply indispensable for our body can be found. Eating an egg or scrambled eggs from two or three eggs gives you a good boost of energy and enough calories for the morning. In addition, scrambled eggs can be prepared very quickly which is also important, since in the morning we are often strapped for time.
As for cholesterol, it is worth noting that recent research has proved that eggs contain good cholesterol which means that it does not harm the body and is not deposited on the walls of our blood vessels. Therefore, eating two eggs a day is absolutely not harmful, and many nutritionists recommend eggs for breakfast.
There are people who only like to drink a cup of coffee or tea with a cake or croissant in the morning. In this breakfast, too, there are positive things. Coffee is an excellent stimulant that will give you a good charge of vitality and energy, and sugar in small doses will fill your blood with glucose, which stimulates the brain and the blood circulation in the body.
Finally, anyone who has problems with their appetite in the morning should drink a glass of warm water 20-30 minutes before the first meal. Doing this will mean that your stomach understands that you need to wake up after sleeping and will start its work, and this will allow you to feel the feeling of hunger and enjoy breakfast.
