Breakfast is fuel for our day, a charge for the body and brain.
In an ideal world, we all eat healthy and very good Instagram breakfasts , and every day there is something new on the menu. Unfortunately, the reality is harsher. There are days when you have to come to work early, when you overslept, when the refrigerator is empty at home, mom is far away and no one will make breakfast for you.
You will have to save the situation on your own and accustom yourself to the healthy habits of an adult. So how do you get the most out of breakfast ?
Eat breakfast alone, share lunch with a friend, give dinner to an enemy. This truth is the quintessence of all the rules of healthy eating. Breakfast should be a mandatory point of the plan every day, because it is the most important meal. Without breakfast, we risk not getting rid of drowsiness, sluggishness and unpleasant sensations in the stomach until the end of the day. When the feeling of hunger finally catches up with us, it is unlikely that something healthy and useful will be at hand, and coffee and donuts on an empty stomach will only make the situation worse.
Leave all those dream breakfasts with a bunch of ingredients and a complicated preparation process for the weekend: then these morning snacks are fun and unhurried. Create your own list of quick and healthy options for morning meals for all occasions: eggs in any form, toast with cheese, avocado, peanut butter or jam, instant oatmeal or buckwheat, fruit smoothies, muesli with milk or yogurt. Do yourself a favor in case of a morning without breakfast : put cereal bars, bags of raw nuts or dried fruits in your bag in advance.
There are many cereals in supermarkets that you don't buy. When oatmeal and buckwheat are boring, bulgur, quinoa, millet, brown rice and amaranth will save the situation. Hipster chia pudding is actually just a lifesaver: pour any milk or juice in the evening, add berries, fruits and nuts in the morning - and you're done. If you have bananas and milk in the refrigerator, add any frozen berries, flax seeds, superfood powders to them - and here you have a vitamin breakfast smoothie . If you only know how to fry eggs, learn a couple or three more ways to prepare this self-sufficient product.
According to scientists, protein breakfasts cope better with a long-lasting feeling of satiety than carbohydrates. Let's believe the people of science: we eat eggs, natural yogurts, natural nut pastes (you can make your own) and chicken fillet. Hummus or lentil paste will also cope with the task, which can be supplemented with vegetables, toast or bread (always have them in stock).
