The most important part of having a healthy breakfast is – to wake up. Early. (LOL)
Most of the individuals who are conscious about their health or people who have visited a nutritionist even once would know the importance of breakfast. It sets the tone for the day. Therefore, it becomes extremely necessary to ensure that you have a healthy, fulfilling and somewhat tasty breakfast. Right?
Also ‘Breakfast’ is called so for a reason. As most of us know (but don’t implement), that it is advisable to have small and frequent meals after every 2-3 hours for a healthy metabolic process. But, at night we sleep for 6-8 hours or even more. Our body then goes into catabolism, wherein it uses muscles as fuel for the body which is harshly against your health goal. Therefore, it is essential to have your breakfast within 30 – 45 minutes of waking up. That’s the time frame by when you should ‘break your fast’.
Therefore, we have 4 highly effective breakfast options for you:
1) OATTY NUTTY
This is by far the most healthy breakfast option available to the human kind. Here, all you have to do is, soak 1/2 or 1 cup of oats (depending upon your goal) overnight. In the morning, take one handful of almonds, cashew nuts, walnuts and peanuts. Crush them and mix with the softened oats. Also, add one spoon of Peanut Butter and mix. This breakfast gives you a well balanced diet consisting of complex carbohydrates, whole protein, healthy fats (Omega 3-6-9) and a multitude of vitamins and minerals.
2) TUTTI FRUTI
This is another version or rather variation of consuming OATS for breakfast. Here, you can soak the OATS overnight just like the previous one or boil it in the morning or if you seek to gain weight, you could boil it in milk. Meanwhile chop non-pulpy fruits like apple (the best), guava, Papaya, chikoo, Pear, etc. After the oats have received a good boil and is soft, add the chopped fruits to it to make it a whole breakfast. This meal contains valuable and high amount of good carbohydrates, protein and vital micronutrients.
3) THE PEANUT – BUTTER DYNAMITE
Don’t judge a book by it’s cover and don’t judge a food by it’s name. This item has much more to it than just any butter. Firstly, take four to five slices of whole wheat or multigrain bread ( toasting is a personal choice). Apply one spoon of Peanut butter to each slice and spread it evenly. Then take two bananas and slice them. Put the slices in the middle of two breads. And here you are; ready with ‘the peanut – butter dynamite’. This item again has perfect amount of Carbohydrates, adequate protein and high level of good fat.
This diet is a very conventional and simple one for people who seek to have a strong breakfast. In this meal, firstly take four to five eggs ( 1 whole and others’ yolk) and beat them to form a batter. Then make an omlette out of the entire batter. Then along with it take 1/2 chopped cucumber and a glass of skimmed or fat free milk. Here, the main purpose of the cucumber is to cool the body down especially to nullify the heating effect of five eggs. This meal is a perfect for weight loss. It is a protein rich diet with a quintessential blend of vitamins and minerals.
These were the four diets that are considered one of the healthiest by experts in the industry. We know that some of us might already know about it. But our main problem is not about not knowing what to eat, but rather accepting it as a routine. If you are determined to be a better version of yourself, both, physically and mentally, then work on it. Convince yourself that this is your diet and you will follow it no matter what.
Give EXCUSES to the entire world, BUT NOT TO YOURSELF.
All the best!
