Spring is arriving, and in some parts it is already there, like here in the southern Spain. When the season is changing somehow we people tend to like having some changes in our lives as well. One of these changes could be paying more attention on what and how we are eating. Let’s start with breakfast!
Breakfast kick-starts your metabolism, helping you burn calories throughout the day. It also gives you the energy you need to get things done and helps you focus at work or at school. Those are just a few reasons why it’s the most important meal of the day.
Many studies have linked eating breakfast to good health, including better memory and concentration, lower levels of “bad” LDL cholesterol, and lower chances of getting diabetes, heart disease, and being overweight.
It’s hard to know, though, if breakfast causes these healthy habits or if people who eat it have healthier lifestyles.
But this much is clear: Skipping the morning meal can throw off your body’s rhythm of fasting and eating. When you wake up, the blood sugar your body needs to make your muscles and brain work their best is usually low. Breakfast helps replenish it.
So what to eat for breakfast? We made a breakfast basket with full of healthy and delicious options:
- mix crunchy granola with almond milk
- Have a glass of carrot juice
- Add some turmeric powder to your omelette or smoothie
- Spice up your outmeal with dried apple
- Have a gluten free ginger cookie with your morning coffee
How do you start your day?
