Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. If you get breakfast right, you’ll set the tone for the whole day. Preparing a nourishing bowl is easy and fast, all you need are a few cupboard staples. In 5 minutes you’ll have a delicious filling meal that nourishes the body, improves cognitive function and can even help boost your metabolism. By eating a healthy breakfast, you’ll be less likely to reach for junk foods later in the day, and you’re also sending a message to yourself that you respect your body and that you deserve to enjoy a good life.
The ideal Breakfast Bowl should include probiotic and prebiotic foods, to keep your gut healthy; protein, healthy fats and fiber, to help you feel fuller longer, balance blood sugar, and regulate hormones; and good sources of micronutrients, phytonutrients and enzymes, essential for the proper performance of all body functions and general well-being.
