We have all heard about Breakfast being the most important food for our start to the day HOWEVER how much you are actually eating, what is contains and whether it is good for you will be something that will make you STOP DEAD in your tracks and have a good think about it.
Good breakfast foods should be easy to digest, full of nutrients, enjoyed with family and not be over 500 calories.
Studies show that eating a light breakfast can help reduce the risk of developing type-2 diabetes and heart disease.
Experts argue whether a morning meal is necessary although most would agree that breakfast is important for:
- for maintaining healthy blood sugar levels;
- prevent overeating later on in the day;
- stocking the metabolism; and
- ensuring you get vital nutrients before you start the day.
Breakfast has even known in preventing type-2 diabetes so long as it is of a health choice.
Best foods to eat are fruits, leafy greens, nuts, seeds and soaked grains if tolerated. Superfoods is another source of recommendation as well as fresh juices and smoothies.
A cooked plant-based breakfast, packed with protein, antioxidants, fibre and complex carbohydrates is steel-cut oatmeal with fresh fruit and nuts.
So . . . I will be going to discuss this in further detail..
All the best,
