Dietitians believe that a healthy breakfast should contain between 400 and 700 calories and nutrients that charge our body with energy. Eating some popular foods in the morning is not recommended, even if we are used to them. Now you can check if today’s breakfast was healthy or not.
We have compiled a list of products that we recommend that you avoid eating in the morning.
Breakfast Foods Doctors Don’t Recommend
Crepes And Pancakes
Nice crepes and pancakes fill you up, and if you add a topping like honey or jelly, the insulin level in your blood becomes extremely high. This type of breakfast contributes to obesity, influences your mood, and can even make you feel grumpy.
Recommendation: Try new recipes, substitute wheat flour for oatmeal, and eat some fresh fruits and berries instead of sweet toppings. But don’t eat too many fruits and berries in the morning, they can cause gas.
Cereals And Muesli
These foods contain a lot of sugar, not fiber or protein. Research shows that a high-carbohydrate breakfast causes you to eat more at lunch. People who ate 0.11 ounces (3 g) of protein and 1.40 ounces (40 g) of carbohydrates in the morning felt hungry faster than those who ate high-protein foods.
People who are more susceptible to developing diabetes and young children should avoid eating cereals due to their high sugar levels.
Recommendation: Choose unsweetened corn flakes and muesli. Add some walnuts and flaxseed to get the required amount of protein.
White Bread Toast
White bread is not good for you and the more you toast, the more harmful it becomes. The hotter it burns, the more carcinogens it contains.
Recommendation: Replace white bread with whole wheat bread and if you love toast, always make sure it does not have a burnt crust.
Nutella And Other Chocolate Spreads
Scientists have calculated that 2 tablespoons of Nutella contain 83% of the recommended daily sugar intake for women.
This dose can improve your mood in the morning, but the energy will soon fade and you will start to feel tired. Also, these spreads contain palm oil, which is very bad for your health.
Recommendation: We can replace the chocolate spreads with unsweetened peanut butter that contains enough protein and healthy fats.
White rice contains a lot of carbohydrates. According to studies, it can also cause digestive problems because it contains too much starch and does not contain coarse fiber.
Recommendation: We can eat brown rice instead of white: it is digested more slowly and provides better energy to our body. To make your breakfast faster, soak the rice the night before.
When we make a smoothie, sometimes we add too many ingredients by mistake. Fruits and vegetables lose their shape and we believe that the portion is too small to satisfy our hunger.
So we decorate it with whipped cream thinking that we are making it more nutritious. As a result, your smoothie becomes saturated with sugar. Also, eating oranges, mangoes, or bananas in the morning is not recommended.
Recommendation: You can use measuring cups to understand how many ingredients you really need.
