Importance of breakfast
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Unfortunately, not everyone realizes that. A lot of people miss the breakfast because they are in a hurry or loaded with work. Another problem is the fact that people often choose rather unhealthy food. The food full of carbohydrates or fats is often a part of someone's breakfast. People eat a lot of pancakes, muffins, pies and similar which may raise the level of blood sugar in the morning. Fried bacon and eggs, greasy cheese or sausages are not that suitable for starting a day. Highly nutritional values of the food one eats are important for making one fit for the day. Saturated fat food is not a good option as well as high sugar one. Breakfast should consist of food rich in vitamins, proteins or fibers. The best choice are proteins, dairy products of low fat and whole-grain carbohydrates. Healthy breakfast requires just 15 minutes to prepare, so no one can make an excuse of not having time to do that. If there is not enough time in the morning for making breakfast, make breakfast the night before. Good idea is to buy all the necessary food the day before, e.g. when getting back from work.
Here are some suggestions for making breakfast healthy.1. Oatmeal can be one way to start breakfast.
