Start your day great

Breakfast – the most important meal of the day and yet it’s the one who gets side tracked the most. With it being national nutrition week and the theme being ‘breakfast – start your day great’, I found it fit to do my favorite things all at once: be a dietician, help you become healthier and of course writing about it.

Breakfast is just what the word says: breaking your fast after not eating for 7-8 hours. It’s it is important to eat your breakfast because besides providing you with vitamins, minerals and fibre, it helps to kick start your metabolism for the day ahead. Ever wondered why you are grumpy when hungry? This is the reason why.

Other health benefits of having breakfast includes helping you maintain a good weight, make better food choices during the day as well as preventing or managing lifestyle diseases such as hypertension, diabetes and high cholesterol.

To make a long story short, breakfast is the starting point for a healthy lifestyle and in terms of long term health, it becomes a solid foundation. Needless to say, the norm concerning breakfasts has changed but allow me to give you a few tips on how to make breakfast a simple and sustaining habit daily

Tips to stay winning at breakfast 

  1. Always have at least 2 food groups  I.e porridge with milk and a fruit or brown bread with a boiled egg.
  2.  Plan ahead what you will have for breakfast; it saves you time, money and helps you develop your own meal plan.
  3. Left overs can be eaten for breakfast – left over meat or chicken can be eaten with bread, veggies can be used for scrambling eggs and baked beans can be eaten with toast.
  4. When you are not hungry, swop your snack with your breakfast 
  5. Wake up 10 minutes earlier to prepare your breakfast daily or
  6. Prepare everything and set it up the night before to save time in the morning.
  7. Use proteins, fruit and yogurt to build up your breakfast should you feel you are still hungry.

We can talk longer on reasons why breakfast is an important meal to have, but let’s keep it short and sweet (for now).

If you are still struggling with having a good breakfast, besides your normal  porridges, your most welcome to try these out and let me know how it goes!!
