For a good breakfast, you cannot miss:

  • Dairy products: milk, yogurt, cheese… or any other dairy product, as they are one of the basic sources of calcium, an essential nutrient for our body.
  • Cereals or farinaceous products: these are products made with cereal flour: bread, cereals themselves, biscuits, etc. They provide carbohydrates, that is, the fuel of our body.
  • Fruit: whether they are pieces of fruit or juices made from fruit, they provide vitamins, minerals, and fiber.

watch out for coffee

Coffee Beans

The first thing many of us do when we wake up is go get our dose of coffee to try to wake up and be more clear. But this is not always favorable for our body, since an excess of caffeine can cause heart problems or attack the nervous system. Although it may seem incredible, an apple or tea can have the same effect (or even greater) than a coffee, and help us clear our heads in the morning.

Dedicate the time you need

We must dedicate some time to breakfast, quietly and -if possible- accompanied. There is no excuse that works, not even the common lack of time. A correct breakfast will only take you about 15 minutes and will give you the necessary strength for the 5 or 6 hours that you will have to spend until lunchtime. If you are one of those who cannot put anything in your stomach just getting up, you can also choose to have something lighter when you wake up and complement it with a mid-morning breakfast.

Treat yourself

On certain special days, you can skip the rules a bit and allow yourself to add elements such as homemade pastries (cakes, muffins, cookies…) or chocolate to your breakfast. This cannot be done daily since these foods provide a high content of saturated fats that are difficult to digest.
