Breakfast is the most important dish during the day and should never be missed.
According to nutritionist Sarah Elder, the body uses a lot of energy reserves to restore at night, so a balanced breakfast helps to increase energy levels as well as the amounts of protein and calcium used at night.
It energizes the body, improves concentration and helps the body burn calories. Studies show that breakfast is associated with improved memory and a lower risk of heart disease, obesity, disease, and high cholesterol.
When we miss breakfast, we have increased appetites because the sugar levels in the body are low and eventually we overeat the rest of the day.
The following breakfast recipe is a healthy opportunity to start the day. This recipe will support the process of burning calories, lowering levels of cholesterol and glucose, and helping you lose weight.
Its main ingredients are oat and chia seeds. Chia seeds are rich in omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, and powerful antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties improve heart health and fight arthritis and diverticulosis. In 30 grams chia seeds contain 27% phosphorus, 18% calcium, 30% manganese, and lower levels of copper and potassium.
On the other hand, oatmeal is a rich source of beta-glucan, soluble fiber, which lowers bad cholesterol. Oats are also high in manganese, selenium, zinc, magnesium, iron, thiamine, phosphorus and others.
A cup of cooked oatmeal contains 150 calories, 4 grams of fiber and 6 grams of protein.
Here’s how to prepare a delicious breakfast:
1 cup of oats
4 tablespoons chia seeds
2 glasses of water
2 tablespoons of honey
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
Pour the water in a bowl, add the cinnamon and as soon as the water starts to boil, reduce the heat and add the oats. Boil for 5 minutes and remove the pot from the hob. Cover it and put it aside for 5 minutes.
