Top Healthy Breakfast options

Top Healthy Breakfast options:

Healthy living is dependent on healthy breakfast. Breakfast is the most crucial component of healthy living. Skip the breakfast and you not only spoil the healthy start for the day but your whole day would be dull.

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It should be heaviest compared to other meals. Plus it should be full of proteins and essential fats. It should be less in sugar.

Negative Effects of not having breakfast on human body:
Not having breakfast means there is a difference of almost 14-15 hours between two meals i.e. last day's dinner and next day's lunch.

1) It slows down the metabolism and thus result in weight gain
2) It reduces the concentration at work. If you skip the breakfast regularly, it makes a body less effective & productive at work.
3) Many a times, people who skip breakfast feels lazy. This encourages people to go for tea or coffee. Having a tea or coffee on an empty stomach increase a sugar level and makes it difficult for the next meal to digest very slowly.
4) If you eat more during the rest of the day while skipping breakfast, you are highly nominated for weight gain and that is a precursor to heart disease and many other serious health conditions.

So have a breakfast regularly and very early in the morning.

Options of healthy breakfast

1) Oatmeal : Oatmeal are rich in fibres and anti-oxidants which are most essential part of breakfast. The more the fibre content, less are the chances of heart problems since rich fiber intake helps body to burn bad cholesterol. Generally, intake of oats with milk or water without sugar is considered as the healthiest. Also, my nutritionist says it's important to get protein within 30 minutes of waking up.

2) Green Tea : The best time to consume green tea is on an empty stomach in the morning and once in the evening. This power drink is also packed with antioxidants, which will help your skin look younger and healthier overall. It improves digestive system. Find out more on Green Tea, Green Tea Benefits.
