Ditch the sugar and switch to savoury!
We’ve all heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. After a night of fasting, we need to refuel our bodies in the morning. Studies have suggested that people who eat breakfast regularly, have a stronger immune system and they may even live longer too! So, now that we’re all agreed that we need to eat breakfast . . . what’s on the menu? (Note – a flat white does not count as breakfast!)
Sweet or Savoury ? Eating a sugary breakfast essentially sends your blood sugar on a roller coaster for the rest of the day. You are much more likely to crave sugary snacks and drinks before lunch time. Starting the day with a savoury breakfast, such as eggs, is a much better way to stabilise your energy levels. What we eat for breakfast will replenish the fuel tank for both the body and mind. Brain function is also improved after a balanced meal.
Make breakfast a priority and challenge yourself not to use your phone or computer until after you’ve eaten. We’ve all laid in bed in the morning, scrolling through emails and tweets, you then realise that you’ve wasted 20 mins (at least) and you spend the next half hour rushing to make it out of the house on time. So, here is a savoury breakfast bowl that is packed full of goodness! And it only takes 6 mins to prepare.
- Grilled Asparagus
- Fresh Tomatoes
- 1 Egg (Boiled for 5 mins)
- Uber simple! Cook each item of food in your preferred way, there’s really no right or wrong as long as you steer clear from using too much fat during the cooking. Poaching or soft boiling the eggs is a great way to make them tasty without adding extra calories
Eating a healthy breakfast will give you more energy to face the day and it will also help boost your metabolism too. Bon appetit!
