Contrary to popular belief, not all carbs are bad for you! Especially if you have them at breakfast time. In fact, we need carbs to give us energy throughout the day, but it’s the type of carbs that we are having. For example, you can have a slice of bread in the morning, but don’t just have bread on its own. Switch things up so it’s healthier for you! Today we’re going to tell you about three carbs you can consume guilt-free and that will help you make breakfast time more healthy:
Avocados aren’t only good for guacamole. You could cut some avocado slices and make avocado toast, or you could grab some cottage cheese and scoop that on top, just like you’d eat it with toast. Avocados are a good source of protein that will keep you feeling full and give you energy.
Oats are very good for you. They help reduce cholesterol. In fact, what you could do is have oats, as in porridge for breakfast and add fresh seasonal fruits to make it more nutritious. You could also have granola. You could even have overnight oats. There are so many ways to have oats at breakfast time and the options are endless. Plus, they are a good source of energy that lasts you a long time. Plus they are high in protein and fibre too!
3) Sweet Potato Slices
Yes, you heard that right! Instead of toast, have you tried sweet potato slices (a.k.a. shakarkandi)? You could put it in the toaster or you could put it in the oven. Once it’s cooked, put on your favourite topping, which could be some hummus or it could be some scrambled eggs. You could also add cherry tomatoes and cucumber slices to add in freshness. Anything that you like can have your sweet potato toast for breakfast.
The first meal of the day is the most important because it keeps you energized and pumped throughout the day so you can be the very best version of yourself! We hope that we’ve helped you in making healthier choices. Which of these carbs will you be having for breakfast? Let us know.
