U.S breakfast consumption is trending downward. According to statistics and national breakfast consumption databases, fewer Americans eat breakfast everyday compared to years past, consequently fewer people are reaping the considerable health benefits of breakfast consumption. We all know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day but according to a recent survey conducted by the University of North Carolina revealed that in 1965, 86% of adults were consuming breakfast that # dropped to 75% in 1991 and to 44% in 2010. (in 47 years there has been about 49% decline)
Here is a quick demo of a healthy and convenient breakfast option. Enjoy!
So we are all busy with life but that is not an excuse for not having a wholesome breakfast on the go – seriously what is your excuse? Please send me your excuse and I guarantee I will have a solution, so go ahead and tell me your excuse is for not eating breakfast!
This is what I do:
Grab a bowl
Pour some of this into your bowl
Once you get to your work or favorite coffee shop ask for steamed soymilk or skim milk
This morning I came across an article about “good gut bacteria” in the daily mail which I think is an important topic and I get asked about it frequently. The headline read: Forget those trendy probiotic drinks – just eat more porridge! We’re always being told to increase the ‘friendly bacteria’ in our gut, but this leading doctor recommends a much simpler alternative instead.
First, a health warning: anyone eating breakfast should skip to the sports section.
In January of this year a group of doctors in Amsterdam published a study using ‘friendly bacteria’ in the most extreme way possible. They were treating a group of patients with an infection caused by a bacterium called Clostridium difficile (C.diff) – which grows when your normal bowel bacteria are wiped out by antibiotics. It can cause severe diarrhoea and even death.
Ironically the treatment of C.diff infections is usually another strong course of antibiotics, but instead the Dutch group used the ultimate probiotic: a faecal transplantation.
The power of porridge: Dr Christoffer van Tulleken ate oats every day for six weeks to assess the impact on his gut bacteria.
