Healthy breakfast: The three ingredients that should not be missing according to a nutritionist

The breakfast is the first meal of the day and is one of the most important. Choosing a healthy alternative and, if possible, guided by a nutritionist, could make a difference in terms of energy and health.

The fact of not eating food when waking up has been the target of a lot of myths, but it is true that this poses some health risks, induced by high blood pressure, obesity or diabetes.

In addition, studies indicate that there is a risk of suffering heart attacks, suffering from arteriosclerosis and affecting intestinal transit. In the case of children, starting the day hungry can cause them to have behavioral, academic and emotional problems.

This is a healthy breakfast

Nutritionist Guillermo Rodíguez Navarrete told the People VIP program that a healthy breakfast is achieved after reducing carbohydrates, along with an increase in protein and healthy fats.

Regarding the ingredients, he specified that the egg, the avocado and the bacon are the three star products to make a complete meal and start the day. He stressed that, contrary to what many think, bacon fat is not harmful, since it is the most similar to that found in breast milk.

The specialist, also known as “Nutrillermo” in his social networks, recommended an ancestral diet, related to the foods consumed by previous generations. Among them are meat, fish and proteins from nature.

Healthy eating and habits

Rodríguez Navarrete recognizes that many people have created an opinion about certain foods and fear for the effects they may have when consuming them.

“Starting the day with that breakfast, although it’s a bit scary because they say that eggs raise cholesterol and bacon (bacon) comes from saturated fat, you shouldn’t be afraid,” said the specialist to People en Español.

In addition, he pointed out that maintaining a quality sleep, reducing exposure to artificial light, lowering the intake of sugars and also of flours, are good habits to achieve an optimal lifestyle, oriented to good health.
