It powers you to keep up with the day’s demands.

The old saying: “Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, and supper like a pauper…” is still recognised to be true. ‘Breaking-the-fast’ (breakfast) recognizes that the body has been deprived of nutrients, often for up to 10 – 12 hours. During this time, it has been carrying out the vital repair and rebuilding work during the all-important sleeping hours. That is why studies also show that we have increased levels of stress hormones in the system when we wake up.

As soon as we eat breakfast those stress hormones are neutralized. But it is not only the physical body that needs energy and nutrition for the day, a healthy breakfast is vital for proper brain functioning. Our neurochemical activity in the brain, that supports creative thinking, requires amino acids (protein) in addition to energy-giving carbohydrates. Further studies confirm that those who have eaten a healthy breakfast are more focused and more creative than those who have skipped it.

For some delicious breakfast ideas try ’Super Speedy Oats’ and ‘Breakfast Egg Box’ that you can find here.

Eating breakfast is one of the foundation stones of building your wellbeing. Explore ‘The Nutrition Institute’ to find out so much more about how to care for yourself and your family. They also have an excellent book, or you could buy a place on the 12 Steps to Wholesome Nutrition on-line course. It is a no-nonsense educational approach to food, nutrition and lifestyle. It is not about a ‘diet’, but rather powerful transition into a cleaner, healthier way of eating for the rest of your life. With a strong focus on your genetic uniqueness, you will be guided towards self-empowerment, as opposed to being reliant on a particular product or programme. Click here to find out more.
