A problem many of us face each morning before we start our day is how to make a healthy breakfast. It is either because we do not have time for breakfast, or we lack ideas for healthy options. My focus is on a plant based diet, although I have mentioned in other posts that I do eat some wild caught oily fish from time to time for the omega 3 fatty acids. But, eating a mostly vegan diet doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice taste or a meal that is hearty. You can eat quick, healthy and satisfying meals that will help you maintain good health and vitality.
Life can be very intense at times, thus we have to ensure that we get the proper nutrition to remain effective and active. Breakfast is one of the most neglected meals of the day, but with some quick healthy breakfast ideas, you can consume a great breakfast without spending at lot of time. Start off your day properly by applying these ideas into your morning routine and keeping it simple.
A healthy breakfast will…
- Stimulate the metabolism – eating breakfast accelerates the metabolism therefore, you burn calories rather than store them, which turns them into fat.
- Strengthen the intake of nutrients – those who eat breakfast have a lower fat intake while fiber intake is higher with significantly higher levels of minerals and vitamins (most especially iron, calcium and magnesium). Consuming the proper nutrients will help you to keep from binge eating – your hunger is regulated properly and therefore fewer calories have will be consumed from the unhealthy foods.
- Improve concentration and memory – those who eat a healthy breakfast have better focus, are more efficient, and maintain a better mood than those who skip eating breakfast.
- Help you maintain a healthy weight – those who eat breakfast are likely to maintain a healthy weight.
Place all of the fruit in a large Magic Bullet container. Fill to the top with coconut water. Add a scoop of organic green barley powder for added nutrients. Process the smoothie on the Magic Bullet base until well blended. Use one of the closing tops and affix to the container once it is blended. You are ready to go!
