There’s an old adage that states: eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, and dinner like a pauper. Honestly, breakfast is the most important meal of the day, which makes what you actually eat that much more important.
The act of eating breakfast is essentially loading the body with the fuel it’s going to need for the rest of the day. Even though putting in some greasy and salty bacon, maple-syrup-soaked pancakes or waffles is delicious, it’s not proper fuel. All of the excess, salt, sugar, and fat is more of a meal for poor heart health than anything.
If you want to fuel your body with foods that give you energy all day, here are 12 energizing ingredients that need to be in your breakfast to make it power-packed and one fit for a champion. They will make your body feel light and keep you refreshed without compromising on those delicious flavors.
Tap into the abundance of vitamins, antioxidants, fiber, potassium, essential minerals and water content from fruits such as oranges, bananas, apples, and kiwis. They will give you a immunity boost, a refreshed feeling, and the focused and sharp mind that you need every morning and all day, every day. Add fruit to your juice or salad for even more health benefits.
Packed with tons of antioxidants, berries such as raspberries, strawberries, cranberries, and blueberries are also low in calories. In addition, these berries help cleanse your blood, reduce your blood cholesterol levels, and also contain anthocyanins. The anthocyanins improve the heart’s functions, unclog your skin’s pores, and slow down your body’s aging cells. This means you will stay looking youthful and fresh. Throw a handful into your morning oatmeal for a delicious treat.
