Breakfast: the most important meal of the day!

An old saying goes: “Eat like a king in the morning, a rich man in the afternoon and a beggar at night.” And without a shadow of a doubt there is a lot of truth to this proposition. Breakfast: the most important meal of the day!

Breakfast is a very important meal – depending on its nutritious value it can either make or break your day.

We usually skip breakfast because we don’t have the time, but we must start to include it little by little in our daily schedule.

How can we find time for breakfast?

We can start by having breakfast a few days a week instead of every day, and gradually increase the number of days. Start with 1-2 products. For example, if you already eat something in the morning, e.g. you drink milk, you can easily add something else to it.

But what should a “proper” breakfast contain?

Breakfast should definitely include milk and/or low-fat yogurt that can be also combined with whole grains.

Milk contains calcium which is the building block of the skeleton, the material that hardens the bones, so that they can withstand the weight of the body and the pressures exerted by movement.

Also a slice of multigrain bread with margarine and honey, jam or tahini, and a banana that contains important nutrients such as vitamin C and especially potassium (which helps to develop muscle mass, making it essential for children) and fiber.

The oats

There has been a lot of talk lately about oats because they help lower glucose and cholesterol levels. They are usually crashed into flakes and can be consumed as is, in pastries, bread, muesli and various other forms.

For breakfast, you can eat oats with milk or yogurt, banana, walnuts or any other fruits or nuts you prefer.

It’s always hard to start something new. But you’ll slowly overcome any challenge. Since if you start eating a proper breakfast before leaving home, you will see that your body starts looking forward to it and you’ll eventually end up making it a part of your daily schedule!
