Breakfast is considered to be the most important meal of all. Ideally, it has to contain foods low in fat and rich in proteins. The protein intake should continue during the day. Our digestive system will create amino acids by breaking the proteins, and our body uses them to repair the muscle tissues and cells, and keep our organs hydrated. Bodybuilders are especially taking care of the proteins and the amounts they take in. This is because proteins help them build strong muscles. For body builders, a high-protein breakfast is a must.
Probably the best protein source is the eggs. The proteins found in eggs are very valuable because they belong to the group of complete proteins. The proteins in eggs are then broken into amino acids. The egg yolk is also very valuable because of the proteins, saturated fats and good cholesterol it contains. We believe you don’t need any recipes about how to prepare eggs, because almost everyone knows how to make an omelet or boil eggs.
Protein shakes, or the popular smoothies, are a simple combination of nuts, fruits and milk. Bodybuilders especially like smoothies because it is a great help in the body building process, and it also improves the work of our digestive tract. Smoothies can also improve our metabolism and help us burn fats much easier.
The most popular, and by some people, the healthiest way to start your day is by having cereals for breakfast. They are a great combination of proteins, grains and fibers. And there is nothing easier to prepare than a bowl of cereals. They also improve your digestion, and you won’t feel hungry for a while. Since we have mentioned cereals, we have to mention oatmeal as another great way to start your day. Besides the proteins it contains, it is full of fibers and carbs.
There are also other foods, which can help you start your day in a perfect way, for example, grapefruit or orange juice. They are loaded with vitamins, minerals and proteins as well. On the other hand, you can drink milk in the morning which we strongly recommend if you don’t suffer from lactose intolerance.
There is one thing you should avoid, and that is to start your day with a cup of coffee. It is always better to have a full glass of freshly squeezed fruit juice. It is also not recommended to skip your breakfast because you might feel tired and sleepy. To avoid this, always try to have a healthy and balanced breakfast.
