Many times we hear people saying that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It is called breakfast because it breaks the longest fasting period of the body. Aside from that, eating after sleep will replenish the body’s glucose supply to keep the energy pumping all through your day. The sad thing is that though many are aware of it, it is not practiced.
When you are about to prepare for breakfast, you realized that you do not have time for it and then skip it. If given a choice, you would rather sleep it out than wake up and eat. This is a common scenario in many households here in Singapore. It is time that you change your ways. You can actually whip a healthy breakfast in few minutes. Remember that options are infinite when preparing for breakfast.
Here are some healthy breakfast suggestion that will guarantee a good day:
- Oatmeal with egg: Sometimes you do not like oatmeal because it is plain boring. Now, you should realize that you can do many things with your oatmeal. Start with this savoury oatmeal with egg. When preparing the oatmeal, do not add sugar or cinnamon. You should try adding poached egg then finally sprinkle it with some cheese for added flavour.
- Avocado toast topped with egg: It is said that avocados are wonder fruit because it contains more nutrients than any other fruit. It is time to put all these nutrients in good news. Why not try topping the smashed avocado on your bread? The bread should be toasted first and then layer it with sunny-side up eggs. This will surely give you good dose of protein. If you want, you can bring some for your morning snack.
- Leftover overload: No food should be wasted. If you are stuck with leftovers from last night, it is time to put it in good use instead of throwing it. Microwave the leftover but this time put some cracked egg and heat it for 30 to 45 seconds. If you have Parmesan cheese, you can sprinkle some.
- Smoothies: No time to cook? If this is the case, allot time blending something before heading to school or work. Smoothies are good and packed with nutrients plus it can get tasty. It is like taking everything with one gulp. Try blending yogurt, bananas, honey, soy milk and peanut butter. You only need some ice cubes. It is better to prepare it at night so you can still freeze it.
Every Singaporean should eat breakfast before tackling the day as it can make a difference.
