Most of the people skip their breakfast but breakfast is one of the most important meal of the day. Eating a healthy breakfast in the morning can fuel the body for starting the day, maintain overall health and aid in controlling weight. A healthy breakfast contains carbohydrates for energy, protein for muscle coordination and fiber for healthy digestion. When planning healthy breakfast meals, consider personal medical conditions, such as diabetes or heart conditions, that require modifications in sodium and sugar intake.
Just the act of eating breakfast supplies the body with energy and fuel by replenishing glycogen levels after an evening's rest. Some breakfast meals can offer an additional increase in energy levels from healthy carbohydrate sources such as whole grains and fruits. Try a toasted whole-grain bread, such as a bagel or English muffin topped with with a serving of low-fat cheese, and add a whole grapefruit boiled egg. Whole-grain breads offer sustained energy from carbohydrates and fiber, cheese provides a serving of dairy and the boiled egg offers a protein source. The grapefruit, another form of carbohydrate with natural sugars, also supplies a good source of morning energy. Drink a glass of water for hydration or choose skim milk for added calcium.
