5 Ways to Have a Healthy Breakfast in Singapore–While fried beehoon and confectionary buns taste yummy for breakfast, they are not good for weight and energy for the day. Having a healthy breakfast in Singapore is as easy as these five ways.
Do you have the habit of skipping breakfast, like I did when I was younger? If you thought this was a good way to prevent weight gain, think again. Studies have shown that individuals who eat breakfast are able to maintain their weight much better than those who choose to skip breakfast.
This is why having breakfast and choosing what you eat is crucial. It sets the pace for your day because it has a direct effect on how well you function from hour to hour. Start your day right with these healthy breakfast options.
Already in most refrigerators, eggs are one of the highest quality of protein you can get. Food with high protein content is known to keep your cravings at bay for the rest of the day. Eggs co all eight essential amino acids, this little nutritional powerhouse is an amazing go-to breakfast choice. You can get them from either wet markets, or supermarkets everywhere.
Oatmeal is a whole grain that is packed with fibre, which helps maintain blood glucose levels and improve intestinal health. In addition, whole grains are broken down slowly, making oatmeal a great substitute for white bread. Throw in some dried raisins, and you can pretend that it is a bowl of oatmeal raisin cookies! Quick cooking oats, raisins and any dried fruit of your choice can easily be obtained from a nearby supermarket.
Peanut butter is packed with protein and heart-healthy fats that help you feel full for a longer time. It is also known to prevent cravings later in the day and, like all great things, peanut butter can help you lose weight. Opt for natural peanut butter where the only ingredient is peanuts used to make the peanut butter. Spread some on wholegrain toast, top with sliced bananas, and you have a yummy breakfast! The best part—after buying it from the supermarket, the jar of peanut butter can last you for a few weeks.
If you prefer having breakfast prepared for you, head to the local Kopitiam or Hawker Centre for a warm bowl of fish porridge! For a healthier version — skip the oil & dough fritters!
Yoghurt in the morning is amazing for your intestinal health. As it is high in protein, regularly having it helps the body recover faster after a workout. If you are preparing this at home, get the low-fat varieties from the dairy section in supermarkets. But if you are in a hurry, you can find ready prepared yoghurt and granola in any Starbucks outlet.
It helps to start your day right and sustain your energy levels throughout the day. The best way to do so is to make wise breakfast choices, by choosing these healthy options! As well as to regularly have your breakfast.
