Do you want to eat healthier and don't know where to start? Well, not skipping breakfast is a great start. We know how difficult it can be to add something to your list, especially on stressful mornings. Breakfast for most of us is not our first priority. However, eating a healthy and nutritious breakfast is actually the key to a successful day. With a bit of planning and adjustments to make your life easier, eating breakfast is actually very simple. Let us inspire and show you what to consider when planning your conscious and delicious breakfast in under 15 minutes.
Let’s make some breakfast!
You probably heard of the quote: breakfast is the most important meal of the day. And that’s true. Breaking your fast (break-fast) after a night full of sleep, actually helps you to wake up, feel less hungry throughout the day and avoid binge-eating at night. Not eating regularly can lead to weight gain, poor sleep quality and bowel movement issues. At night your body asks for what it has been missing during the day. However, not everyone is hungry or has time to spare in the mornings. That is why it’s important to plan your meal.
Things to consider when building your breakfast:
1. Choose an item from every food group (carb, fat, protein, vegetable and fruit).
2. Choose complex carbohydrates.
3. Use high quality fats.
4. Make it fun and easy!
When choosing an item from every food group, make sure to get as many nutrients as possible. Food diversity is not only important on a plant-based diet, but for everyone else as well. Against popular beliefs, carbs and fat are not bad in itself. It is the type of carb or fat you choose that is more or less beneficial to your body. Carbohydrates actually are our number one energy-source, so why not choose a carb that can keep us energised for even longer? Carbohydrates are made up of starch, fibre and sugar. The less sugar it contains, the complexer the carb. Complex carbs like whole grains, fruits and vegetables that are rich in fibre and beans can be a perfect component to your healthy breakfast. Healthy eating does not have to be boring. Make it fun and easy! Choose toppings like yoghurt, nuts, seeds and even dark chocolate. A balanced breakfast has a little bit of everything. Understanding how your body works and what it needs to feel energised, balanced and healthy helps you a lot to find your perfect breakfast.
