Breakfast is the most important meal of the day as it replenishes the essential nutrients which are required to give you energy throughout the day. Studies have shown that having a healthy breakfast is linked to many health benefits, improved performance and lose weight. Eating healthy means that you eat foods that contain almost all nutritional components such as proteins, carbohydrates, vitamins, fat, water and minerals. One of the healthy breakfast ideas is juicing.
Juicing is the extraction of juice from fruits and vegetables and it contains most of the minerals, vitamins, and phytonutrients (plant chemicals) that are found in them. However, it doesn’t contain healthy fiber, which is found in whole fruits and vegetables, but it is still beneficial to the body. It is a good substitute for raw vegetables, which most people have difficulty eating. Fresh juices give you so much nutrition while at the same time the body uses less digestive energy which is lowest in the morning, hence the body will be left with sufficient energy for a productive morning.
When you have juices for breakfast it prevents you from taking large meals or even overeating hence you will not feel tired after taking breakfast. The nutrients are absorbed without being broken much quickly and efficiently in the bloodstream since it is the only food that is in the stomach after starving at night. This gives you an instant energy boost and it is much better than taking coffee in the morning.
There are benefits that come when you choose to take here juices for breakfast and these are:
Juices taken in the morning provide the body with sufficient nutrients and balance the pH, which in turn boosts your energy.
Juices contain fewer calories than most meals we eat in the morning so it will help you lose weight and also it is digested in the body faster so it will not be stored as fat but used as energy.
The phytochemical in the juices supercharge your immune system and provide biophotonic energy which revitalizes the body.
Vegetables and fruits contain antioxidants so when they are taken as juices early in the morning they are absorbed easily and they make the skin smooth and slow the aging process.
Juicing ensures that you take the required servings of vegetables and fruits that you need each day in an efficient manner so you will not have to worry that you haven't taken them.
Juicing helps the body cleanse off toxins from the cells and also rebuilds the cells, soothes the inflamed and damaged tissues.
The fibre that is left in the juicer while juicing can be added to your juice so that you can get the benefits of fibre. Take you juice while it is still fresh, so as to gain the maximum benefits. A juice that has stayed for long tends to breakdown the raw nutrient due to the exposure to oxygen. You can add sweet fruits such as apples in vegetable juices so that it is a bit flavoured.
