Have you ever imagined waking up every morning to a tray full of all the goodies you’d ever want in life? Why then would you miss your breakfast? Is it because of the time you wake up or you simply don’t have time for breakfast or both?
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and is often called that for a very good reason. As the name suggests, Breakfast breaks the overnight fasting period.
It replenishes the supply of glucose to boost your energy level and alertness, while also producing other essential nutrients required for good health.
Breakfast varies in every part of the world. Some may choose to take in something really light, others may prefer something very heavy.
Sometimes a simple breakfast will consist of a cup of milk, tea, or coffee is taken with one or more pastries, bread rolls, toast, butter, jam, or honey, or just cereal.
In large Ghanaian cities, for instance, working-class people would often take fruit, tea, chocolate drink, oats, rice porridge is also known as rice water or kooko, and koose/akara.
It is however very important to know the time that breakfast is supposed to be eaten. Plan to eat breakfast within an hour of waking. This way, your breakfast doesn’t blend into a mid-morning snack or grazing followed closely by lunch.
One must always make sure that breakfast is never missed because missing a morning meal can throw off your body’s rhythm of fasting and eating.
When you wake up, the blood sugar your body needs to make your muscles and brain work their best is usually low. Breakfast helps replenish it.
So never miss your breakfast.
