Looking at the rush we often live in, we often do not have the opportunity to start our day properly. Lack of breakfast for many does not seem to be the end of the world because somehow we are able to experience this piece of the day to our first real meal. Is breakfast really important to us? Let’s take a closer look at this.
Breakfast – why is it important?
Let’s start with the question of why we need breakfast. One would think that it is only about “recharging the energy of our body”, but it is very important here that we break the time of starving, which, of course, happens during our sleep. In addition to providing energy, it is also important whether our body has all the nutrients it needs to function properly.
Skipping breakfast – what’s next?
A lot of research has been done to avoid breakfast, and various interesting facts have been discovered
- people who do not eat breakfast usually weigh more than people who eat breakfast
- omitting this meal may affect our mind. We can feel numb and insecure
- the lack of a proper, full breakfast is often associated with the fact that the next meals are very unhealthy and inappropriate due to lack of food routine
- people who eat breakfast usually have diets that are very rich in various nutrients
- interestingly, the older we are, the more likely we are to skip breakfast
Why do we give up “the most important meal of the day?
The reasons are obviously different
- no time
- lack of willingness
- no idea for breakfast
- desire to sleep longer
Is this really such a big problem?
On the one hand, YES, on the other, no. The simplest solution is often snacking on the occasion of anything that we can eat/buy at the moment. Unfortunately, it often happens that our snacks do not have too many essential nutrients and are mainly full of fat and salt – it is not an ideal replacement for a sensible breakfast. A healthy breakfast also takes care of the condition of our body, thanks to which we have a lower chance of getting sick compared to people who do not eat breakfast.
Adequate breakfast in the morning is an important matter because we are sure that we will provide our body with a lot of energy for a better start. In addition, all vitamins and minerals like fibre have a positive effect on how our body functions, plus we reduce the chance to eat unhealthy snacks. It’s worth it!
