In Singapore, many of us lead busy lifestyles, and in turn, skip breakfast to get ahead of our morning routines and hectic schedules – this is a big concern. Instead of opting for a healthy bowl of breakfast cereal or freshly made smoothies supercharged with superfood powders, we rely on grab-and-go carb-heavy, nutrient-poor foods. Some of these convenient go-to foods include McDonald’s pancakes, fried bee hoon, or instant foods, which are loaded with refined sugar.
What is a Nutritious Breakfast?
Due to the pandemic, many of us are still working from home. Tempted by the unhealthy snacks and foods in our pantries, it is inevitable that we turn to comfort food. These are often not as nutritionally beneficial as whole foods, such as fruits, nuts, seeds – basically those that are minimally processed and close to their state in nature.
It is known that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. As such, a productive day begins with a nutritious breakfast. It is important to ensure that your body is fuelled right with all the right nutrients to ensure better concentration, strengthen your immunity, and have a steady energy level, both physically and mentally.
