Most people try to come up with the perfect recipe for their breakfast.
However, what most people don’t know is that perfect may actually mean oversize.
For example, I started my day with a big bowl of cereals all covered in fat milk and a muffin or an apple to round up the picture.
At some point, after screening this morning menu, I realized that my breakfast was over 330 calories. Not such a good start, right? Well, after serious investigations and a couple of experiments this is what I learned:
- Brown rice - Not only it is full of vitamin B but is also a great source of fiber. All you have to do is cook it the night before and add the next morning a spoon of honey and, optional some raisings or a sliced apple if there are any in the house. Red wheat, oats, millet or barley can also be in your morning menu.
- Fruit smoothie - Choose any fruits you like, put them in the blender and add some protein powder. It’s healthy, easy to prepare and rich in antioxidants.
- Organic eggs - It’s not just a story what you hear about organic eggs. Breakfast is healthier with a couple of eggs that help you prevent hearth diseases and mental illnesses. A high dose of omega 3 fatty acids makes them your perfect ally in preventing and fighting health disorders.
- Soy products - A slice of soy bacon or a piece of soy sausage can be as delicious as the originals they substitute. They offer you the protein you need and not the saturated fat you don’t need.
- Orange juice - Yummy! You know all those commercials where somebody tells you that orange juice brings you to life? Well, it is all true: the vitamin C not only boosts your immunity system or your cholesterol level but also gives you the energy to start the day with a good tonus.
The truth is that we sometimes forget just how important breakfast is. When the children have to be at school and you have to be at work in 5 minutes, it is normal to panic. However, to be organized is easy…so, why not start with your diet?
