I love relishing healthy breakfast, daily! Do you also? If you’re someone who skips breakfast everyday, from time to time, or gobbles junk food for convenience, then you’re missing out on the benefits of proper breakfast, and need to take action!
The Oxford Dictionaries defines breakfast as ‘A meal eaten in the morning, the first of the day’. As you sleep for around 8 hours (or so) everyday, you wake up and ‘break your fast’ with your first meal of the day. Having healthy breakfast helps to remain in shape, so that you go through the day in an energetic and focused way.
Some benefits of taking proper breakfast, that are conducive to your wellness and well-being are:
- You are able to better concentrate on studies or work, having consumed nutritious food in the morning.
- People who eat breakfast are often slimmer than those who skip it, as the latter tend to eat more during the day.
- Incorporate preparing and eating healthy breakfast into your morning routine to make it your daily habit. Having a routine, is often linked to professional success.
- Plan your breakfast and fitness routines together, as they go hand in hand, giving you holistic benefits, and for the longer term.
- Are you bad at being a morning person? Planning great breakfast could help motivate yourself, so that waking up early becomes something that you look forward to, making it a daily habit.
- Some examples of healthy breakfast include (but are not limited to) oats, yogurt, fruits, eggs (low-calorie recipes), whole wheat toasts, a variety of smoothies, more… To make breakfast interesting, you may vary the way you take your oats, serve your toasts, and use different fruits for your smoothie. Ideas are unlimited!
“All happiness depends on a leisurely breakfast.” – John Gunther, as on Brainy Quote.
“Feedback is the breakfast of champions.” – Ken Blanchard, as on Brainy Quote.
