Breakfast, the most important meal!

Breakfast, the most important meal!

Studies have shown that it is important not only to have breakfast but  what you have. During all the night that you hadn’t eaten, your body has consumed the biggest part of deposited sugar. During the night, the body consumes the deposited energy to refine and recuperate physiological systems and tissues. In other word, the body “refurbishes” during the night. Even though it is always said that breakfast is very important, many people skip breakfast.

We are under time pressure in the morning, but with a better plan, anyone can find a healthy solution for the breakfast meal adapting it with his own lifestyle. Breakfast is a good supply of the body with necessary nutrients as: fibers, energy, vitamins, magnesium and iron. Studies have shown that people who consume breakfast are  better feed, have a more balanced diet and healthier weigh in comparison with those who don’t have breakfast.

The key of having a healthy breakfast is the right proportion of carbohydrates, fibers, proteins and fats.

Carbohydrates: oat, integral bread, season fruit are a rich energy source of plant fibers. Fibers are necessary in the breakfast in order to protect from the fluctuation of sugar in the blood and from a pronounced hunger during the day.

Dairy shouldn’t be absent in the breakfast meal and it should come in the form of natural yogurt. Milk is also a simple solution which doesn’t need time to prepare.
