How many of you had breakfast this morning, and what was your choice of breakfast today?
Well breakfast is the most important meal of the day, not only it is something that sets the tone and mood for the rest of the day, a good breakfast also give your body proper nutrients to stay alert after the 8 hour (or longer) fast during the night.
Hence it is called break-fast. Read on and join us for a free breakfast this Sunday (details at bottom)
City dwellers are notorious for skipping breakfasts though, let’s look at some of the more popular reasons why we sometimes forgo this glorious meal:
I have no time…
Eating breakfast doesn’t actually take much time. One can always grab-and-go, drive through, or even eat at the office. This isn’t a very good excuse.
I’m already late!
Wake up just half an hour earlier (by going to be half an hour earlier) usually has a huge impact when it comes to morning traffic. Not being in a hurry in the morning sets a more relaxing tone to the rest of the day too.
I’m on a diet
Many who are on diet made the mistake of skipping breakfast to cut calories. Recent studies found that fasting made people hungrier and increased the appeal of high calorie foods and the amount people ate. Have a wholesome breakfast that can carry you through lunch is a wiser choice.
My stomach isn’t ready to have anything in the morning
This is usually psychological. Know and understand the importance of breakfast. Refueling in the morning is crucial and natural.
I don’t want to prepare anything in the morning
This is understandable, but we live in Malaysia and foods are available 24/7. Added bonus: you don’t have to clean up the kitchen.
So okay, you need breakfast, but what is a breakfast?
A good breakfast consists of a combination of carbohydrates, proteins, fibre, vitamins, minerals, and fluids. Having a good breakfast will allow you to develop a tendency to consume fewer calories during the day, as your body won’t need to over compensate later in the day.
So all this talk about breakfast… lets have some huh?
