A Healthy Start

Breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day because it is where we can decide how we will approach or master the day. Breakfast is a very important meal. At night, during sleep, our metabolism is not rest and instead is extremely active, stimulating rest and recovery in the body. Our brain depends on sugar for energy. A healthy breakfast should therefore be rich in valuable nutrients such as complex carbohydrates (e. g. cereal, oatmeal, whole meal flakes or whole meal bread) combined with high-quality protein (yogurt, curd, cheese, eggs) and fresh vegetables or fruit. These provide the necessary building blocks. At the same time, these combinations do not overload the blood sugar level and provide a pleasant and long-lasting satiety.

Breakfast

There’s a reason breakfast is often called “the most important meal of the day”. Breaking the fast after an overnight fast is what breakfast is all about. It provides vital nutrients for good health and replenishes your supply of glucose to boost energy levels and alertness. As well as improving your concentration for the day ahead, breakfast can also help you manage your weight better, and reduce your diabetes and heart disease risk over time. Metabolic Balance meal plans provide protein-rich, vegetable-rich, and complex carbohydrate-rich breakfast options. Great health starts by knowing what foods you need to eat!

Apple Scrambled Eggs

An apple a day keeps the doctor away . . . So it is perfect to eat them for breakfast as apple scrambled eggs. 

Ingredients:

1 portion of eggs
1 apple
Splash of water
Salt 
Vanilla
Cinnamon 

Preparation:
Wash and core the apple and chop or grate it. Heat a pan and cook the apple for a few minutes until soft. Whip the egg with a splash of water and season with vanilla, cinnamon, and salt. Pour the egg over the stewed apple and let it set. Sprinkle with cinnamon before serving. Enjoy!

Breakfast- Pros and Cons

“Breakfast – the most important meal of the day” – has always been a controversial topic, especially since there are differing expert opinions and observational studies. On the one hand, the team “no breakfast is a no go” argues that a balanced breakfast stimulates the metabolism and provides the body with the energy it needs to start the day efficiently and focused. Furthermore, you can prevent cravings and thus avoid constant “snacking”. This is saving calories in a simple way and at the same time preparing the body for the day ahead.

On the other hand, the “omit the breakfast” side believes that it is easier to maintain your weight with no breakfast. Longer fasting breaks (intermittent fasting) should give the body and organs more time for recovering and regenerating. This can also have a positive effect on blood pressure, blood sugar and blood fat levels.

In the United States, nearly one in four adults leave the house without breakfast because they may not be hungry or because they don’t have the time.

Fast breakfast options might be the right solution here, which can be varied in a fantastic way and are also well suited to take on the go! For example, overnight oats can be prepared the night before in a jar and then eaten on the way to work. Another great option are smoothies, which can be quickly prepared.  It’s also ideal to take to the office for a late breakfast.
