Our eating habit has changed a lot in the last few years. But our body and the digestive system did not change. We all know about evolution and adaptation and it takes many thousands of generations to 'accomplish' any changes, works well for insects and other critters with a short lifespan, but our bodies and the digestive system did not have enough time to adapt to our modern ways of eating. We are stuck with a body and a digestive system that is thousands of years of our modern nutrition and we are better off if we start catering to the system we actually have!
Healthy breakfast ideas with dried fruits and nuts
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day according to most health experts throughout the years. Hearing this advice, I bet you had been aware of this but some people simply ignore it by going to work without having your breakfast.
A healthy breakfast must include sufficient amounts of nutrition and calories, which is around 500 calories. This will ensure that your body is satisfied enough to start your day and replenish what is lost during the sleep. It should also include sufficient amount of protein to nourish and build your muscles. In addition, it should contain some carbohydrates to boost your daily energy. Together with carbo, fats are also important to slow down the absorption of the carbohydrates, hence preventing the sudden peak of sugar levels. So dried fruits and nuts, if used in proper quantities, will be great choice to consume for breakfast. The nutrition they have is very valuable, and helpful to balance a good diet and healthy breakfast. They also help to control weight; dried fruits contain natural sugar and nuts are naturally high in monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats.
