What is your “breakfast of champions”? It is startling how many Americans start their days off with no nourishment or sustenance to keep them going throughout the day. Breakfast truly is our most important meal of the day. It gets our body’s metabolism going and helps kick the digestive system and GI tract into action so that we can use our food as fuel/energy for whatever may lie ahead.
Crystal, at Lakewood Community Acupuncture, recommends to start the day off the day with a meal that would include cooked veggies, protein and healthy fats. Vegetables provide enzymes, minerals and vitamins that give us energy, prevent illness and the vital nutrients our brain and other organs need to survive. Instead of taking a ton of isolates of vitamins and minerals, get the real deal through your food sources. Protein is important to give a pep in your step and bring strength to the 650 muscles within your body that keep you motivated and moving. Our brain thrives on healthy fats. Good quality oils, butters and seeds will keep your neurons firing at their optimal speed.
