About 18 percent of males and 13 percent of females in my age group are breakfast skippers (NPD 2011). I was one of those crazy people back in the day. The list of benefits for eating breakfasts are overwhelming (and too long to be listed here.) and you have not heard the end of the cliche that “breakfast is the most important meal of the day” anytime soon.
So, what is an optimized breakfast? For me it’s something you can throw together in minutes, has great nutrients and something you can eat everyday. Efficient, healthy and simple in other words.
Through some experimentation if found a breakfast that ticks all these boxes for me. Here are the ingredients:
– whole grain oats
– A mix of seeds (pumpkin, chia, linseed, sunflower)
– Blueberries and/or raspberries
– A ripe banana for sweetness
Short term effects: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
– Promotes stable blood sugar levels throughout the day.
– Less decisions to make.
– Filling enough to last you until lunch.
– Quick to prepare.
Long term effects: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
– Simplicity, simplicity, simplicity!
– Saves time and energy!
– I think I have eaten the same breakfast everyday for 3 years now. I still look forward this meal every morning!
– The whole idea of eating the same thing every day might be a turnoff for people that crave variety.
FINAL VERDICT: ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
– “So benefit, very breakfast, such nutrition!”
