Balanced breakfast is the basic need of every individual to start a fresh day with a fresh mind and energy. Despite knowing the age-old fact, many people skip their breakfast and get troubled by some serious health issues. As per the Ayurvedic texts after an overnight stay with no food entering the system, a healthy breakfast helps in keeping the vata-pitta balance in control. Other than the digestive issues troubling the body, skipping the breakfast also disturbs the sadhaka pitta which is responsible for maintaining an even temper, joy, and contentment.
According to Ayurveda, the digestive and metabolism factors of the human body are directly related to the path of the sun across the sky which means as the sun rises higher in the sky the digestion and metabolism increases and are at their highest at noon. But as the sun begins to go down so does our digestion and metabolism factors thus, being the least at night. In fact, a healthy breakfast is not only beneficial for muscles, but also considered as ayurvedic medicine for calcium in the body. The common pattern followed by most of the people nowadays is to either skip breakfast or to munch on a few snacks, then having a light lunch, followed by heavy snacking in the evening and eating almost more than the appetite at night.
Ayurveda is in strict opposition of this routine and refers skipping breakfast and filling up too much at night is one of the primary reasons for weight problems, impaired digestion which is then linked to everything from anxiety to insomnia and lowered immunity levels. Here are some tips to maintain the gut health and shine all day by munching on healthy in the crucial morning meal:
Opt for a nutrient-packed breakfast
In the nighttime, the body tends to contract, i.e., the energy stored during this period of time is closed and tight, this means the body is in an urgent need of an expansive morning meal that opens up and activates the relaxed energy. Protein is the primary nutrient required in breakfast along with an adequate amount of other nutrients like carbohydrates, fats and vitamins & minerals. In fact, foods such as some orange juice, oatmeal, and breakfast cereal are ayurvedic medicine for calcium which are healthy for early morning snacks.
Don’t rely on quick snacks in the morning
Daily munching on the quick snacks which mostly include junks or are high in calories and fats are of no good, as instead of fuelling up the body for an energetic day ahead they end up making it more lethargic. Regularly having bread and muffins with coffee or tea ends up in a heavy amount of unwanted calories and grease in our body. To get rid of this leniency from your side, start with proper meal planning a day before. This planning will help in maintaining a healthy digestive system with ease.
Flush in the fluids in your diet
At night, while the body is regularly functioning with no food going inside it, it tends to become quite dehydrated. Drinking plenty of water and having high fibrous breakfast meal with some fruit or vegetable juice of your choice, re-hydrates the body and prepares it well for a proper digestive function throughout the day.
Maintain a distance from toxins and toxic anti-nutrientsDuring night, while we are busy sleeping the toxic bodies inside our system tends to be more acidic and further piling the breakfast with toxins (from drinking alcohol and smoking) and toxic anti-nutrients (in grains, beans, peanuts, soy and too much of vegetable oils) can lead to immense destruction of the intestinal lining. Instead try going on an alkaline diet with lots of fruits, nuts, legumes, and vegetables in it, this will power up the body’s ability to detoxify the preoccupied toxins from the previous night.
