By doing this we are avoiding the same type of breakfast and it also brings special interest towards breakfast!! How many times have you heard the phrase "breakfast is the most important meal of the day"? Well in this case it is not only an age-old myth but a medical truth. A Balanced breakfast can help improve your mental functioning affect your mood influence a healthy weight and reduce the risk of chronic diseases later on in life. When you skip breakfast it can act as "nutritional boomerang "and adversely affect your mental and physical state both in the short and long term. Even so about 30% of the population don t bother with breakfast (and no instant coffee does not count as breakfast). Among the most common excuses are: I don t have the time to fit in eating in the mornings I d rather save those calories I forget to eat if I eat in the morning I feel more hungry later on in the day and more.
A recent study done in the UK suggests that what we eat for breakfast has a bearing on how our bodies react to lunch. According to the study eating soon after waking up in the morning may help stabilize blood glucose levels later during the day. The small-scale study investigated metabolic changes in eight obese adults with type 2 diabetes. The subjects were divided into two groups--one group had breakfast soon after waking up in the morning and the other group skipped breakfast altogether. The researchers noted how blood glucose levels differed between the groups and found that those who had breakfast showed a much lower spike in blood glucose after lunch compared to those who didn t have breakfast. The two groups had similar levels of insulin.
Reason I mention that is that although some people criticise them for having a heavy meal that early what modern day dieticians are advising is pretty much similar - have a big breakfast. The meal would normally consist of rice (carbohydrates) dal (protein) vegetables (vitamins and minerals) and ghee (fat) and unless I got it all wrong this is what constitutes a balanced meal. At this day and age we barely have the time to make all these before we walk out of the doors to work and neither would our working hours allow such a schedule. So what are some quick breakfast solutions you could try. 1. Oats porridge - boil a couple of tablespoon of oats in water until it is done (regular oats is better than quick cooking and honestly does not take much time to cook anyway).
