Surprise! These Popular Breakfast Foods Aren’t as Healthy as You Think
What do you eat for breakfast?
Some of the most popular breakfast foods are cereals, energy bars, bagels, fruit, yogurt, fruit juice, and coffee. If you drink your coffee black, what do all the other foods have in common? Sugar.
These foods are quick and energizing.
Keep in mind while most processed foods make squeezing in breakfast more possible, it also means that these foods are more likely to contain additives that your body does not need, including high fructose corn syrup (HFCS). In fact, all of the foods listed above except coffee, if purchased at a supermarket, likely contain fructose.
While juice, yogurt, cereal, and energy bars seem healthy, the amount of sugar in these foods makes them extremely unhealthy.
- Pasteurized fruit juice contains large amounts of sugar, and oftentimes, manufacturers will add even more before selling the product.
- Cereals, baked goods, and energy bars all have added sugar, even when they claim extra fiber content and to be “heart healthy”.
- Unless you are eating homemade yogurt from raw grass-fed dairy, chances are that the yogurt has added sugar, typically in the form of high fructose corn syrup. Reading labels helps the consumer discern the best product available.
The best way to start your day is with a nutritious soft-boiled egg served with a side of fermented vegetables or steamed greens to give you energy all day long!
What is the best breakfast you can eat?
Beginning the day with protein keeps blood sugar in check and provides fuel for your day. Keep in mind the Body Ecology principle of 20% animal protein and grain with 80% ocean and land vegetables. Eating fermented vegetables with animal protein is highly recommended.
- An egg gently cooked in coconut oil or soft-boiled so that the yolk is still runny, preserving the biotin content in the egg, served with steamed greens and fermented vegetables.
- Morning Smoothie: Vitality SuperGreen and Super Spirulina Plus, blended with a fat of your choice (avocado, coconut oil, or hemp seeds), water or a Body Ecology fermented beverage, ice, and a squirt of stevia. This smoothie gives you a healthy dose of both protein and greens while also supporting your daily requirement for omega 3 fatty acids and beneficial bacteria. Both Vitality SuperGreen and Super Spirulina Plus are fermented for optimal nutrient value!
