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.
Further studies are ongoing to evaluate the effects of factors such as type of breakfast the amount of breakfast and several others on the mood. Who would have thought that breakfast was such a hot topic? I always advise people to do two things: first have something for breakfast; and second experiment with what works best for them. I prefer a high protein and low carbohydrate breakfast - often poached eggs with some ham and a glass of orange juice. I ll have a cup of yerba mate tea and try to hold back on coffee until later in the day. A lot of people find that fruit works for them and while conventional breakfast cereals can be a bit too sweet (leading to a rebound energy drop in mid-morning) other quick healthy breakfast ideas include muesli with some fruit chopped into it which can be a great breakfast.
If you like it sweet add some milk sugar or honey or any other sensible sweetener of choice. If you like savory then add some buttermilk and little salt and consume. Either way have a banana or any other fruit of choice. 2. Breakfast shake - milk shake or smoothies make great breakfast. Blend a banana sweetened with date syrup or any other natural sweetener (avoid synthetic sweetners or refined sugar) along with some milk. Top with crushed nuts and drink. Adding oat milk instead of cow s milk can help reduce calories and fat and also lend to fibre intake. You could try the same with apple too. You could also use a spoon of wheat germ as topping. 3. Muffin - having a low sugar bran loaded muffin is a great way to fill you up for the morning.
