Power up your mornings!
We’ve all heard it before; breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Research shows that it can help kick-start weight loss, improve your mood, reduce sugar cravings, and help you maintain focus and clarity throughout the day (amongst other benefits!). However, chowing down on a donut and coffee in the morning is not the best way to go about a breakfast routine. The tera’swhey® team is here to help you out! We’ve put together a list of healthy breakfast tips and recipes, sure to get your morning started off right!
Breakfast for weight-loss
Studies show that people who eat a balanced breakfast tend to maintain a healthier weight compared to those who skip. One theory suggests that eating a morning meal reduces hunger throughout the day because you are less likely to overeat sugary, fatty snacks and meals. However, choosing the right breakfast is the most important piece.
A healthy start
Eating lean protein, fruits (maybe even veggies!), and complex carbs is the perfect recipe for a healthy start. Protein is essential to satiating hunger and helps to stabilize blood sugar and energy levels throughout the day. High fiber foods are also essential – they are slowly digested, meaning no mid-morning slump. Low fat, low glycemic index foods will promote a slow release of energy – so try to stay away from sugar-laden cereals, bagels and bacon.
We’ve scoured the Web to find the healthiest recipes you can easily incorporate into your morning routine.
