Breakfast: The most important meal of the day

Updated: Dec 5, 2020

First of all, I would like to start this article by acknowledging and pointing out the fact that not every households can afford to have food on the table.

My heart especially goes out to all those kids who go to school while still being hungry because their parents can only afford to provide them with 1 (or no more than 2) meal per day.

Can you imagine having to perform at school on empty stomach and going back home with homework to do for the next day?

Poverty is real...and it's really unfortunate that the gap between the richest and the poorest people on the planet just keep getting bigger and bigger over time.

With that said, I do agree with doctors when they argue that breakfast is the most important meal of the day.

First, eating at precise hours will decrease the risk of developing eating disorders habits (which can be dangerous for your health).

Second, during the day, we tend to spend more energy (which means "sugar"). so it's better to have sugar in the morning and burn all those calories during the day and have a lighter dinner.

Third, breakfast brings a considerable amount of vitamins which help to better perform intellectually either at school or at work.

For breakfast, as I got older, I tend to switch to whole wheat bread instead of white bread (although I have to say that there is nothing better than some good French baguette).

I love oatmeal, especially because it lowers your cholesterol level.

Of course I have to have some vitamin C, hence orange juice. Try to buy natural and "no sugar added" fruit juice. trust me, one brand to another tastes different.

If I eat cereals, I like to have the ones that contains almonds, honey and other nuts in them.

Lastly, I like to eat a banana in the morning...if I am not mistaken it contains vitamin A.
