A question you may have considered as you munch away on your jam on toast and sip your morning coffee, although it was nothing more than a fleeting thought.
But with recent debates towards whether breakfast is even necessary at all, the answer is an interesting one.
There has been a shift in the emphasis of the importance of breakfast, we no longer think it’s the essential meal of the day and many skip it.
Marcela Fuiza, A spokesperson for the British Diabetic Association explains to The Independent, “Research has shown that people who eat breakfast lose weight more successfully, and keep it off, and have reduced risk of certain diseases such as diabetes and heart disease.”
So back to the healthiest breakfast possible, there’s lots of possibilities.
We’ve explored what nutritionists and registered dietitians tend to eat. Despite the diversity in their breakfast options, there was aways a presence of fats and proteins as well as carbs.
Poached eggs with avocado followed by a serving of oats would definitely qualify as one of the best. This meal provides you with a mix of healthy macronutrients to keep you satiated until lunch plus it’s packed with vitamins and minerals.
Adding a small serving of salmon (arguably one of the world’s healthiest foods) to your plate of eggs and avocado would add even more beneficial nutrients, including omegas oils and astaxanthin. Although we admit this one’s not the most achievable to have every day.
