With regards to the kinds of food we should have for our first meal of the day, there have been so many suggestions going around that some of us may be lost as to what we should or should not eat.
But we can’t deny that because it is the first meal of the day, it is thus definitely the most important meal of the day too. Your body has gone without food throughout the night and after its nightly cleanse, your body needs a good breakfast to get started.
So what kind of breakfast food should we be consuming to ensure our energy is kept high and our body is also getting the proper nutrients it deserves? Here are some for you to consider for your next morning meal.
When grapefruit was first introduced as a recommended breakfast item a few years ago, many people were intrigued. My dad, for one, wasn’t a believer because “grapefruit is a citrus fruit which means it is acidic and so cannot be good for your stomach, especially when it’s eaten first thing in the morning.” Apparently though, the humble grapefruit is a great source of vitamin C and potassium and they also pack a whole lot of fibre that helps to make you feel fuller longer too. And if you are looking to lose some weight, having half a grapefruit as an “appetiser” of sorts at breakfast can help shed the pounds quickly.
