A typical breakfast for me would be:
sliced bananas, Jordan’s simply granola oats with a hint of honey ( no added sugar) or Alpen oat granola sugar free, blueberries and almond milk.
I decided to change from cows milk to almond milk for a few reasons;
- No other species drinks another species milk
- No other species drinks milk into adulthood
- There are many studies showing how cows’ milk disrupts the human digestive system
This gets me essential nutrients and minerals to start my day such as:
From Jordan’s simply Granola:
- High quality protein
- High carbohydrates
- fructose- from the raisins
- Fructose- slow releasing sugars
- Vitamins ( A, B6, C, Calcium, Iron, magnesium)
- Sucrose- quick releasing sugars
- Vitamins (A, C, Iron, B6, Magnesium)
- Minerals (potassium)
From almond milk:
- Omega-3 fats
- Vitamins (Riboflavin (B2), B12, E, D2)
- Minerals (potassium, sodium)
Proteins from wheat are higher quality of that from animals to be used for building and repairing muscle.
The sugars from the fruit are slower releasing than normal glucose sugar (table sugar)as they are contained in dietary fibre which, helps for steady energy levels.
Dietary fibre used in the large intestines either partially or completely broken down by bacteria. The bacteria aid our bodies to manufacture amino acids.
Omega-3 fats have many health benefits within the body. The human body can manufacture many fats it needs from other fats or raw materials but, our body does not naturally produce omega-3. They provide the starting point for making hormones that regulate blood clotting, contraction and relaxation of artery walls, and inflammation.
Potassium is crucial to heart function and plays a key role in skeletal and smooth muscle contraction, making it important for normal digestive and muscular function.
Sodium is both an electrolyte and mineral. It helps keep the water (the amount of fluid inside and outside the body’s cells) and electrolyte balance of the body.
