Breakfast is definitely the most important meal of the day as it will help you break your fast the night before. It also prepares you and your body for what lies ahead of you in the new day, and serving a healthy breakfast can make the difference between concentration and a focused mind, which will lead to a productive day or vice versa. Therefore, the diet is important, which needs to be followed carefully and requires a little thought.
However, for the most part, many Nigerians seem to always take breakfast for granted and sometimes choose not to accept it and opt for breakfast instead. Others who eat breakfast usually do so with a set routine or schedule for their breakfast menu, with their regular menu including rice, papa and mites, spaghetti, and so on. While much of their breakfast menu is often healthy, it's not a bad idea to fake something from time to time, right? This is even more true when you consider the popular saying "Diversity is the spice of life".
Including healthy foods in your breakfast menu is the goal of this article because we will show you five (5) foods that you can eat in your breakfast menu as a substitute for normal or regular meals:
Oatmeal is a nutritional powerhouse as it contains several essential nutrients such as potassium, omega-3 fatty acids, folic acid, and many antioxidants. They also contain beta-glucan, a thick, sticky fiber that can help you feel satisfied and lower your cholesterol levels.
They often include this in their breakfast menu without realizing how nutritious and healthy it is for them. Eggs contain high-quality protein and, as several studies have found, dietary cholesterol in eggs has a negligible impact on bad blood cholesterol, and eggs may also help reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes and some cardiovascular diseases.
Coffee has an active ingredient called caffeine which helps improve memory and reduce fatigue, but coffee also contains antioxidants that help fight inflammation. However, it is important not to add cream or sugar to your coffee as this will reduce the beneficial effects of the coffee.
Including berries in your breakfast menu is very important because of the many nutrients and health benefits that you can get from them. Fruits such as blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, and blackberries are rich in fiber, low in calories, and have antioxidant properties. They can be consumed with granola, oatmeal, yogurt, etc.
Bananas are quite nutritious considering the many nutrients they contain. However, it's not all about bananas, they are also high in fiber, which can keep you feeling full for most of the day. In addition, ripe bananas contain more natural sugar, which is good for you. Unripe bananas, on the other hand, contain more tough starch that aids digestion.
