We all know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day and it shouldn’t be skipped. But most of us are not eating making mistake when choosing what to eat for breakfast. It is very important to have a varied diet, based on whole grains, legumes, vegetables and other quality ingredients, which excludes refined products, especially sugar.
These 5 foods will provide energy, strengthen the immune system and keep you from frequent infections in the colder months.
1. Oatmeal (contains fiber, rich in omega 3 fatty acids and contains folate and potassium). Most of the fiber in grains are halved (steek-cut), and you should always select oatmeal without added sugar. Cook for 15 minutes, and you can sweeten with honey, milk, and add a little fruit and nuts.
2. The Greek yogurt with characteristic sharp taste is rich in calcium and protein, it contains them twice as much as yogurt. It is best to eat it for breakfast alone, without sweet additives and soon you will not be hungry. And if you want something sweet, you can eat any fruit of your choice.
3. Wheat germ. Just two tablespoons of wheat germ provide up to 15 percent of daily recommended intake of vitamin E, which is often lacking in the diet. You can add them to breakfast by putting them in the yogurt or in your favorite smut.
4. Grapefruit has positive effect on combustion of excess weight and balancing blood sugar. In addition, the grapefruit is excellent for hydration of the body and is rich in antioxidants that strengthen the immune system. For well-combined breakfast consume it along with protein – egg or plain yogurt.
5. Banana is full of good carbohydrates and is ‘to blame’ for feeling full long after breakfast. It contains a large amount of potassium and can be well combined with the cereal and oatmeal.
All these foods can provide energy to children, strengthen the immune system and keep them from frequent infections in the colder months that are easily spread in kindergartens and schools. It is very important to have a varied diet, based on whole grains, legumes, vegetables and other quality ingredients, which excludes refined products, especially sugar.
