We are all know breakfast time can be a very busy time of day, whether it’s getting the kids ready for school, packing lunches, organising afternoon pickups or just getting out the door. However, for those of you who struggle getting rid of those extra kilos, sometimes skipping breakfast can actually give you the opposite of the desired effect.
When we skip a meal we’re slowing down our metabolism, which helps our bodies digest food effectively. Eating just a small bowl of fruit and yogurt can be a great way to kick-start our digestive system and get our morning started. Not to mention, without the sustenance of a healthy breakfast our brains work overtime to produce the fuel we would normally get from our morning meal.
Nearly everyone has heard the phrase ‘breakfast is the most important meal of the day’, but how often do we actually take this advice?
If you’re struggling to decide what to eat, a popular choice for those short on time is Bircher muesli. Bircher muesli helps lower blood cholesterol concentration, is a great source of fibre, is super filling and better yet, it can be prepared the night before.
