Eating healthy breakfast to start the day has become a fabulous habit. It’s a great way to start my 24 hours off healthfully. The sugar hit from the fruit wakes me up and bring me energy to take on the morning. The sweetness is more vilified as the root of all disease, but sweetness is also loaded with fibre, which is great for your digestive system and helps keep you feeling full longer, and less likely grab a side food out of the vending machine before lunchtime.
Making fruit a morning habit is simple . Easy as put the sweetness in your fridge next to the milk or on the bench next to your grain bowl , or beside your coffee maker or tea kettle — somewhere where you’ll see it. Before you eat the rest of your breakfast , eat your fruit. If you’re not usually a breakfast person.
Giving your stomach energy a bit of sugar in the morning is important to move your healthy body for the 24 hours and fuel to your brain, which, incidentally, requires a continuous supply of sugar in the form of process glucose, amounting to around 120g daily. There is also essential evidence to support the idea that a diet high in fiber can reduce your risk of a number of cancers. And of course, you benefit from all the other supplement and antioxidants in fruit, which keep you strong and healthy.
