Kick starting your day with a healthy breakfast is possibly the best thing you can do for your body and brain.
“Breakfast” literally means ‘breaking your overnight fast. You could be fasting from anything up to 10 hours whilst you sleep so it is important to re-fuel your body with the right nutrients to start the new day.
Here are my Super 6 body boosting breakfast foods to start incorporating into your diet which are guaranteed to keep hunger at bay till lunchtime.
1) Avocado – Not only are avocados delicious, they are also incredibly nutritious as well. This may surprise you but 1 small avocado contains more Potassium than a banana, They are loaded with fiber and with heart-healthy monounsaturated fatty acids and also have the power to lower cholesterol.
2) Eggs – Eggs are a staple part of my daily diet. They are among one of the most nutritious foods on the planet and loaded with nutrients. One of the main nutritional advantages of eggs is their protein content. Despite their high nutritional image, unfortunately eggs also contain quite a high level of cholesterol from the yolk – so you should try and keep the amount of whole eggs your consume to a complete minimum. Try and limit your cholesterol by mixing both your wholes eggs together with your egg whites. This way you are still gaining all the delicious flavors from the egg yolk yet limiting your cholesterol intake at the same time.
3) Oats – Oats are fantastic way to start the day. Packed full of soluble fiber and healthy carbohydrates – not the mention its several health benefits, such as reducing cholesterol and curbing appetite. Introducing oats into your diet is a great way to boost you health. Opt for organic 100% rolled or steel cut oats rather than the ones with added flavors. They are packed full of hidden additives and sugars turning an incredibly nutritious breakfast into another sugar laden breakfast cereal.
4) Rye – You will notice that Rye bread is quite a staple part of my healthy diet. It is so easy to customize in so many ways and its so fun to play around with all the different toppings. Rye is a fantastic source of fiber and 100% wheat and yeast free and works perfectly for breakfast, lunch or as a healthy snack.
5) Nuts & Seeds – Adding a handful of Nuts and seeds into your daily breakfast is one of the best ways to incorporate omega-3 fatty acids. They are rich in protein and packed full of antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and omega 3. Nuts and seeds can be consumed in there raw state, as the base of healthy deserts and even eaten in the form of nut butters- the list is endless.
6) Berries – Berries have a fantastic reputation when it comes to nutrition. Not only are they packed full of fiber, and vitamins but they are also a powerful antioxidant.
