Breakfast is the most important meal of the day for many reasons. Yet there are those of us who skip it or simply chow down unhealthy and nutritionally poor processed foods or options that are easy on the go. Besides being the fuel your body needs for energy, did you know that breakfast also affects your levels of concentration, problem-solving ability and weight management?

Breakfast helps your body refuel its blood glucose levels or blood sugar after eight to twelve hours without any food. According to the American Dietetic Association, glucose is essential for the brain, and is the main energy source for your activities throughout the day. A good breakfast will also help curb hunger pangs and prevent binge eating later in the day.

Skipping breakfast is therefore a big no-no. Not only are you depriving your body of the nutrients it needs, you are also sabotaging your metabolism by slowing down your calorie burn after being on starvation mode for the past eight to twelve hours since your last meal.

Asians consumers are a health conscious lot. The Electrolux Asian Food Survey found that an overwhelming 96% out of the 4000 respondents are concerned about their health and prefer to eat healthily at home. Many however dine out due to convenience.

Challenge yourself this week. Start your day right with a healthy homemade breakfast.

All you need to do is stock up on the following items and keep them in your Electrolux e:line refrigerator so they stay fresh and ready for use any time:

  1. Yoghurt, which is a good source of protein, while being low in tryptophan. Tryptophan is the amino acid found in protein rich food that makes us sleepy.
  2. Blueberries are a rich source of anti-oxidants and Vitamin C. It also has a low glycemic index (GI) that helps to maintain a stable blood sugar level to keep your concentration level steady throughout the day.
  3. Eggs are a good source of protein and are low in saturated fat and calories. A tiny egg alone contains all the nine essential amino acids with up to six grams of protein.
  4. Have wholemeal bread instead of plain white bread. Simply pop that nutritious bread into the toaster and you can have crisp egg sandwiches or honey on toast for a quick and tasty breakfast!
