Best Foods to Consume First Thing in the Morning

What is the significance of the food we eat?

There is an ancient saying that we are what we eat. The food we consume is what becomes us. We are the outcome of the food we consume, the air we breathe and the thoughts we think. Therefore, food plays a critical role in the overall obvious growth of the body. Food feeds the body, the organs, the cell and the brain. Good quality food is crucial because as mentioned above ‘we are what we eat’. Hence, make sure to consume good quality foods and always ensure that you are on a healthy eating habit.

Eating patterns play an important role in what becomes of us. Many may consider that it is a form of dieting and dieting is overrated. Well, that’s not true! Dieting does not always have to mean that you starve your body. Neither does it have to mean that the main purpose is to lose weight. Dieting and healthy eating habits ensure longevity and a healthy body.

Why must you eat healthy in the morning?

The last meal of the day is obviously dinner. Dinners are usually digested in a matter of 4 to 5 hours, depending on what you eat. This means that your stomach remains empty for at least 3 to 4 hours until your next meal.

This is when breakfast comes into play. The purpose of the breakfast as a meal is to break your night’s fast and feed your body some food. However, by this, one does not mean eating anything for breakfast.

There are certain dishes and certain foods which are extremely dangerous when consumed in empty stomach. Because when the empty stomach gets food after a long fast, it absorbs all the nutrients from that particular food.

Therefore beware of what you feed your empty stomach!

  • Warm lemon juice (without any sugar) – This is one of the best drinks for an empty stomach. A lemon juice made from warm water, a pinch of salt and honey is an excellent source of vitamin C, iron, calcium and minerals.
  • Yoghurt/curds – The active pro-biotics and natural bacterias and yeast in the yoghurt and cruds are an excellent source of probiotics to the body. Not only do they boost up your immune system but also keep it ready to fight off any alien germs.
  • Milk with turmeric – Many houses across the globe prefer beginning their days with a good glass of warm milk. This is an excellent practice. However, it is often observed that this milk is consumed with chocolate or other sweetener additives. Sugar or chocolate in the mornings is bad. Therefore, substitute sugar or another additive with a good pinch of turmeric powder. This drink has a natural anti-carcinogenic property which is excellent for your body.
