It doesn’t matter if you are a night owl or a morning person, we all need a boost in the morning to get us going. But what are some of the best ways to get us fired up when we would rather be back in bed? Here are some ways to kick start the day.
Drink Some Mineral Water
If you have had a good 8 hours of sleep, you will have had nothing to drink during this time. This can leave you dehydrated and groggy. By drinking some water, around one glass, you will help to flush out any toxins and help you to digest your food. Although any water is better than no water, it might be better to drink mineral water as it supports bone strength and digestion.
Have Some Coffee
Coffee is one of those things that gets a bad reputation because people take it to the extreme. Drinking a good quality coffee that is freshly made with a De’Longhi ec702 can help to boost your mental performance first thing in the morning. Small amounts of caffeine have also been linked to improved heart health. The best way to take your coffee is black with no sugar, or with low-fat milk. Oat milk is a great choice for coffee if you would like to try a vegan alternative.
This tiny little fruit doesn’t just taste good in pies, it is also classed as a superfood. The wonderful thing about blueberries is you only need a handful and they can be added to anything. Smoothies are a popular option if you have a blender. All you have to do is throw some blueberries, a banana, some oat milk, and ice together, whizz it all together and you have a complete breakfast that will power your morning. You can even eat them by themselves or mixed through other foods.
If you need a protein boost first thing in the morning, then eggs might be the breakfast for you. Not only are they great for filling you up, but they are also a great source of nutrients. To get the most out of them, you should eat around three eggs a day. So, three eggs scrambled in the morning will fill you, help with weight loss, and help with your cholesterol levels. Serve them up with some spinach and your black coffee, and that is quite the morning meal.
If there is one food that has become really popular over the last few years, it is oatmeal. Not only is it proving itself to be very versatile, but it is also a great food to eat on an empty stomach. Eating oatmeal in the morning can help to regulate your blood sugars for hours after you have eaten it. And, you can dress it up with plenty of other foods if you find the taste a bit boring. Mixing chopped up apples or a handful of blueberries is a great way to fill it with some extra vitamins.Hi I'm glad your here! I love to cook, bake and try new recipes.
