4 Health Boosting Breakfast Swaps
To get more energy throughout the day, try these healthier breakfast swaps.
Eating a good breakfast is such an important meal. It provides necessary carbs for the day and is important for balance and energy. However, most of us eat food for breakfast that's high in sugar and uses refined wheat which has most or all of the bran and germ stripped from the grain. This removes fiber, protein, and fat that your body needs throughout the day. It also causes a spike insulin which can reduce blood sugar to lower levels than desired. When this happens you fell peaks and lows in energy.
To give our body more balance during the day try these breakfast swaps made from real ingredients, whole grains, and low glycemic recipes and see the effect!
