Skipping breakfast stabs our system, which rebels and we feel drained of energy and pile on more pounds. We tend to devour anything that is at our disposal at lunch and later during the day due to the loss of energy levels. Studies reveal that omission of breakfast can cause a lot of health disorders. Eating a healthy, nutritious and satisfying breakfast will help you benefit from exercising faster and help lose those inches more rapidly.Eating foods with a low glycemic index will make you feel fuller for a longer time. Also foods which are protein and fiber rich are best breakfast bets.
Quinoa which is high on protein and fiber, is a hot favorite. The plus is that, it has a very low glycemic index. Stir fry veggies like broccoli, carrots, onions, snap peas and green, red or yellow peppers in very little olive oil. Add the cooked quinoa and give a dash of lime juice, salt and pepper powder .You can also add toasted nuts, dried fruit or any other natural herbs as per personal preference.
Cracked wheat which is also a high fiber food can replace quinoa, in the above recipe. Alternatively you can substitute the veggies with milk, nuts and a little bit of honey. A little bit of creative thinking and adding a personal touch is the key.
Scrambled eggs with onion, green peppers and other veggies, is my all time favorite. I like to have it with whole wheat toast.
Tofu is healthier than eggs. Scrambled tofu also tastes excellent. Try scrambled tofu with multi grain bread toast.
I must not fail to mention the wonderful oatmeal with peeled and chopped apples, sliced almonds, ground cinnamon and ground flax seeds. Oatmeal is quick, convenient and has a lot of proven health benefits including lowering cholesterol and reducing the risk of heart disease.
Low fat yoghurt with choice of fruits is an amazing option too. If you have absolutely no time to worry about breakfast, just think fruits. A mix fruit salad is the easiest and healthiest option. If you are considering cereal go for the high fibre options with skimmed milk.
Make some time for breakfast each morning and if not pack your breakfast to work. Skip the egg yellow, fat milk, high fat cheese and opt for healthier versions. At any cost, do not skip the most important meal of the day. Exercise, eat healthy and nutritious and you can start seeing the effects easily around your waist.
