Breakfast: why is it the most important meal?

The first reason concerns the order in which we eat: breakfast is the first meal of the day. We also call it breakfast and it is the first meal after hours of rest. During sleep, our digestive system, as well as the rest of the body, regenerate. This process depletes our energy reserves, so breakfast represents a full tank of essential fuel to be able to face a new day.

But breakfast is the most important meal for another reason as well. The functioning of our body changes during the hours of the day and night, as confirmed by research on the mechanisms that regulate the biological clock, awarded with the Nobel Prize for Medicine 2017. The early hours of the morning are the best time to get most of the nutrients in. A recent study also says it, according to which a large breakfast can even make you lose weight!

Certainly, however, we cannot binge on biscuits and croissants. So what to eat for breakfast to get the most benefits? Find out if you are having the right breakfast by checking these 10 rules for a healthy and nutritious breakfast.

  2. Avoid sugar: we are obviously talking about the infamous white sugar, a real poison for our health. You can replace it with coconut sugar, the best substitute for refined sugar, good, healthy and nutritious.
  3. Don't go overboard with carbohydrates: cookies, croissants, bread and cakes have become part of our habits, but although they are delicious, they are not good for your health. Choose only Whole grains, preferably organic and activated, or soaked to make them germinate.
  4. Better gluten free: always talking about cereals, choose gluten free ones, such as buckwheat or oats, easy to digest and very nutritious.
  5. Protein: A breakfast of coffee, milk and biscuits does not allow your body to function at its best. Proteins are also needed, even better if they are vegetable. The vegan proteins they are less toxic to the liver, but they can provide all the amino acids you need.
  6. Coffee or no coffee, this is the dilemma: without demonizing this drink with its inimitable aroma, it would be better to avoid it for breakfast. You can treat yourself to it a few hours later, in the middle of the morning. But for breakfast, opt for a coffee substituteit is healthy and nutritious like Macaccino, choose a caffeine-free drink that can energize you without fidgeting or causing anxiety.
  7. Vitamins and minerals: as soon as you wake up our body is like a dry car. To turn it on we need to fill up with vitamins, minerals and micronutrients such as antioxidants and essential fatty acids such as Omega-3. Flaxseeds and Chia seeds are the best natural plant sources of these good fats!
  8. Milk? Avoid it: difficult to metabolize, it could weigh down your digestion and the whole day. Choose a vegetable milk for your hot drink, or try a hot Matcha.
  9. Family breakfast! Starting the day together with loved ones is essential for the health of body and mind.
