We’ve all heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day - do you know why?
Breakfast helps to replenish the body’s stores of nutrients and energy. Studies have shown that having breakfast in the morning comes with various health benefits including improving the ability to concentrate in the short term, better weight management and potentially reducing the risk of heart disease in the long term.
Those who find themselves skipping breakfast are more likely to have a poor diet, have lower physical activity levels and not get enough sleep.
Granola is a delicious and healthy breakfast food to incorporate into your morning routine. It’s not only easy to prepare (just add milk or yoghurt, the same as cereals and muesli) but also packed with healthy vitamins and other nutrients.
The benefits of starting your day with Granola include:
- Increasing your protein levels
- Nourishing your body with healthy fats and fibre, which help to fill you up and keep you full for longer
- Antioxidants which may help to lower inflammation
- Low in refined sugar - granolas that contain dried fruit as a natural sweetener are higher in fibre and eating more of this slows the rate at which your body digests sugar as well as carbohydrates. This may help to prevent a spike in blood sugar levels.
- It’s tasty!
