Peanut butter sandwich is a good option as well. 5. Toast and beans - beans also contribute to one of five a day. This option is okay if you have the time to sit down and have your breakfast. 6. Low fat flapjacks - I make my own flapjack which is a bit more chewy than regular ones. I use very little brown sugar but add dry fruits and dates syrup to sweeten instead. Believe it or not small portions of these oats rich almost no added fat flapjacks are a great start to the day. 7. Multi grain porridge - back home it is common practice for moms to make a multi grain powder. It usually consists or wheat barley finger millet sago almonds and cardamom for flavouring. One can add couple of heaped spoons of this to water bring to boil while stirring add jaggery or sugar and milk.
Consumption of a cereal bar in the morning resulted in increased alertness happier mood and less anxiety (and less irritability for the grumpy among us!) when compared to those who did not have any breakfast. Breakfast eaters were also more sociable compared to others. Similar effects were seen in those who had mid-morning snacks substantiating the fact that breakfast can have positive effects on the mood. (1) Another similar study conducted in Germany measured the effects of breakfast on the mood in high school children. It was noted that alertness was increased in all the children who had breakfast in comparison to those who did not. Additionally it was noted that boys who consumed breakfast felt more positive than those who did not. (2) The research focused on providing quick healthy breakfast ideas so that convenience was kept high.
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.
