Your first meal of the day is arguably the most important.
It can be the meal that sets up your energy levels for the entire day.
As well as, supporting the quality of your sleep that night
Eating these 5 foods for breakfast could be sabotaging your energy levels
- Cereals and many shop-bought granolas
- Toast and jam/marmalade/most spreads
- Fruit based smoothies/juices
For most people (depending on your activity levels), these foods can often be too high in carbohydrates and too low in protein and healthy fats.
They can be high in sugar too.
Eating these foods for breakfast can result in a sharp rise in your blood sugar levels, and be followed by an even sharper decline!
This roller coaster of blood glucose levels can leave you feeling hungry just a couple of hours later, and craving more carbohydrates…. It can also contribute to increased fat storage. especially if you are a woman in your 40s or 50s…
Combining quality proteins, healthy fats and fibre is often a better way to start the day.
