By Ritika Chauhan Created on : July 20, 2020
We agree to it, there are days when we get concerned about our diet and start to research the changes that certainly cannot fit in our daily routine, causing a lot of stress and resulting in NO change in the long run. LET’S LEARN ABOUT HEALTHY BREAKFAST
Does being healthy is that difficult or it can be possible by taking just a few steps.
Switching to a healthy diet doesn’t have to be an all-round change. You don’t have to be perfect, you can be imperfect and still be the best version of yourself, all you require is discipline, routine, and strict follow-up.
A better approach is to make a few small changes at a time. Keeping your goals modest can help you achieve more in the long term without depriving yourself of the food you like—like adding a salad to your diet once a day Or by having a HEALTHY FILLING BREAKFAST.
Here are our top guidelines to break the myth of healthy as boring :
- Oats are one of the best food options we can consider in our breakfast routine and eat for a number of reasons.
- As a 100% whole-grain, they’re filled with fiber, plant-based protein, B-vitamins, minerals, including iron, calcium, and magnesium.

- Hence, this can surely act as one the most suitable food type to start your morning with, making it more energetic and filling. Thereafter making your breakfast healthy and your food more loving.
- Porridge is an excellent start to the day because oats can act as complex carbohydrates, providing slow-releasing energy throughout the morning.
- Oat porridge made with water is a good mix of carbohydrates, protein, and fiber and contains no salt or sugar but berries to break the chain of favors.
- Therefore the best alternative one can have over oats is a bowl of porridge topped with some fresh berries making it tempting and delicious. Giving your day a healthy and energetic kick start.
