When it is very hot you have to start the day with a load of energy. Always have breakfast!
We always say, the Breakfast it is the most important meal of the day! But it is also the most neglected meal, especially in the summer … because if in the winter we occasionally indulge ourselves with alternatives between biscuits, rusks and homemade cakes, in summer find ideas for breakfast that are fresher, lighter but still satisfying not it's easy.
Summer breakfasts: not just coffee!
If you are among those who only drink one in the morning coffee before leaving home know that you are doing everything wrong.
Breakfast is not an optional meal, but it is one of the five meals that must necessarily be respected during the day: in the morning it is important to reactivate the metabolism, rehydrate the body and take in all the energy necessary to face the day.
The ideal would be to have breakfast within 30 minutes of waking up and staying at the table for at least 10 minutes.
Breakfast at the bar may not be the rule, but only an exception.
Furthermore, especially in summer, it is important to fill up on healthy foods rich in vitamins and minerals to cope with high temperatures with more energy.
Point the alarm a little earlier
Does it seem impossible to wake up 10 minutes earlier to have breakfast calmly? It is just a matter of habit and then you will understand when it is important to dedicate that extra time to your well-being every day.
If you feel like doing some physical activity, this is the right time to train at home or to go out for a run, but in this case you have to have the courage to aim the alarm earlier.
It's worth it, we assure you!
Sweet or salty?
The ideal breakfast is one that makes you feel good and that you like best, but always in the context of a healthy and balanced choice. You can vary every day alternating between sweet and savory to give you something different every morning. And if you wake up one morning with a craving for toast, heat some rye bread and accompany it with a slice of smoked salmon for a North European breakfast. If you are more for dessert, pour fruit yogurt in a bowl and decorate with granola, seeds and fresh fruit. And then still smoothies, centrifuges or smoothies, not only of fruit but also of vegetables.
