Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. This is an unquestionable truth passed down from generation to generation. However, not everyone knows this and often skips it. However, it is this morning meal that will give you energy for the whole day. How do you prepare a breakfast that provides all the necessary nutrients? Why is this meal so important?
In today’s fast-paced life where you are sleep-deprived and don’t have enough time for everything, you need to look for other solutions. However, the rush should not lead to a situation in which you leave home hungry. Your brain needs the right amount of energy to function properly. That is why you should eat breakfast. Regularly skipping this meal can lead to obesity or metabolic diseases. Children who leave home hungry are much more likely to eat fast food during the day. This behavior leads to excess calorie intake, which in turn can lead to overweight or obesity
Breakfast is about ¼ of the caloric needs for the day. It should be of adequate volume, contain carbohydrates, protein, and also healthy fats. A candy bar or sweet roll can’t fill your stomach, let alone provide you with energy for long. Even if you lead a very active lifestyle and do not have much time, it is worth finding a way to prepare a valuable and balanced meal
One solution is to prepare the food the day before and pack it in a box. It will definitely stay fresh until the morning! If you have a large family, think about a proper breakfast the evening before. Also, make sure you have all the ingredients to prepare it. Alternatively, you can also make sandwiches. As you can see, all it takes is a little willingness and creativity!
Remember that you are the example for your children. If you want to change their eating habits, start with yourself. Show them that breakfast doesn’t have to be boring. Missing a meal in the morning has been linked to snacking throughout the day and late dinners. When you eat dinner at a late hour, on the other hand, your body has to use more energy to digest food at night. Eating at late hours is unhealthy and can lead to obesity

Oatmeal doesn’t have to be boring! My favorite is the cooked kind. Add a sliced apple, a protein supplement (if you use one), walnuts or Brazil nuts. It tastes best with cocoa, cinnamon and peanut butter! Feel free to swap out the ingredients as you and your family see fit. There’s sure to be something for everyone.
Pea paste is made by blending a can of peas, half an onion and two cloves of garlic. You can add a few drops of lemon juice to taste.
Whole grain bread is sure to be in every home and is the most readily available. Spread the paste on bread, decorate with vegetables. Peppers or tomatoes work best. Enjoy!
This is one of the most delicious breakfasts. Quick, nutritious and tasty! To prepare it you will need four eggs, a clove of garlic, a can of tomatoes and spices. Fry the onion and garlic in a frying pan. When they are lightly browned, add the tomatoes. Let them fry until almost all the water has evaporated. Then add the eggs. Cover the pan and fry on low heat covered for 6 minutes. After transferring to a plate, the egg whites should be set and the yolk should be liquid in the middle. You can serve this dish with garlic baguette and vegetables.
Not a fan of oatmeal? The following dish is a delicious combination of many healthy ingredients. It uses natural yogurt as its base, which is light and high in protein. Add a banana or an apple – strawberries also work well. Then throw in a handful of your favorite nuts and 2 teaspoons of chia seeds. Fruits consist of simple sugars that will help your brain function efficiently. On the other hand, a small handful of nuts and chia seeds will provide a dose of healthy fats, which you should also include in your diet. It’s a quick healthy breakfast that will take you literally no time at all to prepare and is sure to fill your stomach and that of your family!
