Why protein in the morning is good for you.
Breakfast, as most mothers know, is the most important meal of the day. But, why that’s true, is not always explained very well, which is funny, because it’s actually very easy to understand. After a long night’s sleep your body is in need of the nutrients and vitamins that keep it going throughout the day. Very simply, breakfast is your body’s first batch of fuel!
Here are four examples of how it affects you.
1. It’s good for digestion:
It is well documented that breakfast kick-starts your digestive process, but do you know that breakfast-skippers are 4.5 times more likely to be overweight? The reason is that by the time you get to lunch, you end up eating more food than you should, and your body is not in the right state to process it all successfully. Then the same thing happens at dinner, and an unfortunate cycle begins.
2. Be pro protein!
A delicious breakfast that usually includes eggs, milk, yogurt or cheese is full of powerful protein. Unlike eating protein at night, morning protein is easily absorbed by the body and redistributed throughout the day. Making sure you stay healthy and strong. However, if you can’t find the time to cook eggs, eat just one slice of bread with Blue Band for a mouthful of deliciously healthy nutrients.
3. You get what you need
Dairy rich, delicious meals (like breakfast) are packed full of all the nutrients that most people do not get enough of. Thanks to things like Vitamin A, E, magnesium and calcium, a healthy, varied breakfast every day will ensure that your whole family continues to grow and develop. Try eating a variety of dishes, like yogurt, cereal, toast with cheese and jam and eggs on toast to get the most out of your mornings.
4. Highs and lows
In a recent study, it was discovered that people who skip breakfast have higher blood sugar levels and cholesterol than those who regularly eat their morning meal. This increases their risk of developing a serious disease, like diabetes – something many people suffer from all over the world. They skip breakfast to shave off calories, which doesn’t work, and end up very sick because their bodies are lacking the essential nutrients and vitamins (like some of those found in Blue Band) they desperately need. In summary, breakfast is the easiest way to a healthy, happy life.
