Benefits of Breakfast

There is no better way to start your day than with a healthy breakfast. Having protein combined with carbohydrates optimizes brain activity, at the same time energizing your body until lunch. A healthy breakfast includes 25% protein, 25% carbohydrates and 50% fruits/vegetables. Protein is key, it optimizes brain function by producing neurotranmitters, giving you energy which helps your entire body function accordingly. Eggs are a great source for protein, they are rich in protein and essential fats, containing 76 calories, 6.5 grams of protein and 5.6 grams of fat; which keeps you feeling full for long periods of time. And, when pairing protein with complex carbohydrates, such as fruits, vegetables, whole grain breads, and cereals, it reduces the urge for those in-between meals. Simple carbohydrates such as donuts, pastries and sugary cereals, get metabolized much quicker, therefore hunger creeps sooner. Combining fruits and vegetables with your breakfast provides vitamins, minerals and fiber that your body needs to function properly. In addition, fruits and vegetables also help protect us against certain diseases and health conditions.
