Apples can be eaten by itself or diced and added to porridge before cooking or anytime during cooking, depending upon your choice. They are an essential source of fibre and a healthy source of natural sugar.
3. Eggs are the best breakfast food. They are an excellent source of protein filled with vitamins A, D, and B12. They are also inexpensive and a nutrient-dense food that keep you full for longer.
4. Yogurt is a food packed with carbs, healthy fats and protein. They are pre-digested dairy products and an excellent source of good bacteria. They are also low in lactose and adding them to your breakfast is highly beneficial.
5. Tea and coffee include antioxidants that help to decrease the risk of heart attacks. It could be consumed without sugar but one can add a spoon of honey. These beverages also help in starting your hydration goals for the day.
Breakfast is important for several reasons. Eating a meal in the morning provides the necessary fuel for your body and brain. It can also help regulate hunger by reducing the urge to snack throughout the day. As with any meal, it is important to focus on your overall diet and not on any one meal in particular.
