Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. You’ve probably heard this a million times, but in the daily rush to get to work and/or get the kids to school, it gets overlooked. Sure a bowl of cereal and milk is better than nothing, but if you plan things out in advance, it is not difficult to come up with a healthy breakfast menu so that you and your loved ones are well fortified with a solid meal under their belts before they head out to face the world.
Why are healthy breakfast choices important?
Assuming you ate three hours before you slept and then slept for seven hours, your body has been starving for the last ten hours. If you continue to go without eating, you are depriving your body of essential nutrition and impairing its capacity to work.
In addition to these macronutrients, a healthy breakfast menu should also consist of micronutrients such as vitamins and minerals. These are best obtained by consuming fruit or drinking a glass of fresh fruit juice. Fruits are also a good source of fiber. Although fiber does not have any nutritional value by itself, it helps you to feel full for longer and also aids in the process of digestion. If you prefer to drink a glass of fruit juice, opt for fresh fruit juice that has not been artificially sweetened and still contains some fruit pulp. The best way to do so is to invest in a juicer and prepare fresh fruit juice at home.
Healthy Breakfast Menus
As you can see, it is fairly simple to ensure that you eat a healthy breakfast every day. Two eggs with two slices of whole wheat bread and a glass of juice are more than enough to meet your body’s requirements. If you’re pressed for time, a bowl of wholegrain cereals in milk with a bowl of fruit is another excellent option. Breakfast menu recipes do not have to be complicated in order to be healthy. Some other healthy breakfast meal ideas include protein shakes with chopped fruit; tasty tuna, chicken, or turkey sandwiches with lettuce, tomatoes, and whole wheat bread; omelets stuffed with fresh chopped vegetables; cooked oats in milk with slices of fruit; and a peanut butter sandwich in whole wheat bread washed down with a glass of fresh fruit juice. It does not have to be elaborate to be healthy. When it comes to breakfast, the most important thing is not to skip it.
