When you or your kids wake up, ready to go to work or school, what do you have for breakfast. Have you ever thought about whether the breakfast you are having is healthy or unhealthy, or do you just eat Honey Nut Clusters for breakfast. Did you you know that it contains 17 grams sugar/1 cup.For whole week you are having 7 cups of sugar. Do you think it is healthy?
Do you know that your cereal may possibly be making you FAT... Since cereal products were introduced in 1867 they have turn out to be popular as the standard breakfast for most people. We love our cereal!
The drawback is that cereals are not as nutritious as they once were. One major substitute in today's cereal is the amount of sugar/artificial flavors they put in the products. The majority of the cereals on the market come up with excessive sugar content and additionally contain hydrogenated oil.
No amount of hydrogenated oil (trans fats) is healthy or okay to consume and we should without doubt kick'em to the curb. According to research a person should have no more than 2 grams of trans fat per day.
Many cereals are loaded with tons of sugar with little to no protein, 1-3 grams of fiber and fat derived from hydrogenated oils. Basically, cereals don't have a sufficient amount healthy fiber, goods fats, or protein, and contain too much sugar, bad fats, and refined carbs.
Additional sugar can be quickly stored as fat right on your belly or thighs, and sugar is also very harmful to the liver, the skin, the joints and causes inflammation and many other complications in the body.
Breakfast should be the most healthiest you should have because you are going to start a new day. You need energy that can last you whole day. It's better for your health (and your weight) to eat breakfast than to skip it.
And you should eat a healthy breakfast, high in fibers and nutrients, than one full of refined grains, sugar, salt, and/or saturated fat.
Here are some of the tips that may help you decide what to have for breakfast.
* Always try to add fruits such as strawberries, bananas, other fruits when you have breakfast.
* Try to eat cereals that are "High" in fiber such as weet-bix.
* Making a fresh fruit salads or blended fruit milk shake. It works every time. Perfect
NEVER EVER you should have these for breakfast:
* Too sugary or carb-filled. Pancakes, waffles, toast, donuts, pastries, scones, bagels, pies, sugar cereals, breakfast bars, muffins (which, let's face it, are usually just cake). This starts your day with a high blood-sugar level, which your body will quickly adjust for and drop, and you'll be on a roller-coaster blood-sugar ride all day.
* Too fatty. Fried eggs, sausages, bacon, cream cheese on your bagels, cheesy omelets, Egg McMuffins, Sausage McMuffins, hash browns, anything English or Scottish.
