Why Breakfast is Important? Big Question For People

How Does Breakfast Influence Your Metabolism?

When you break up the word breakfast itself into break and fast, the correct answer is much more clear. That you are breaking the fast you had been on throughout sleep (if you aren’t one of those munchers who get up during the night to eat something).
When you’re getting up, your metabolism has already dealt with all of the food you had in your system when you went to bed. Because there isn’t much work to do at the moment, it is sort of napping itself and not really working much at all beyond the bare minimums it has to do to keep the body going.

Unless you provide a reason to wake up, it will keep pretty much at its “vegetative” rate. Which is where breakfast enters the picture. When you eat, all of a sudden you’re flooding your digestive system with food and your metabolism leaps into action at a high rate in the endless mission for the process the incoming food.

What does a good breakfast look like?

A nutritious initial meal of the day ought to include proteins, complex carbohydrates, and healthful fats. Fruit, vegetables, low-fat dairy products, whole grains, and lean meats are especially healthy choices along with eggs.
A two-egg omelet with spinach is my favorite. Scrambled eggs with diced bacon are yet another favorite. Use a little olive oil to scramble the eggs; it’s much better than using butter. Balance your omelet with a piece of wholegrain toast smothered by peanut butter. You might even include a slice of meat, such as bacon or sausage, both produced from turkey.
Other breakfast options might incorporate oatmeal with cinnamon and banana pieces, low-fat yogurt with granola or a healthy smoothie made with Chia seeds, almond milk, and your favorite fruit. Stay away from the harmful saturated fats, simple carbohydrates, and sugar.
If you need a little something on the run, choose a couple of hard-boiled eggs, or some trail mix or apple slices with some peanut butter. For a beverage, choose black tea or coffee; the caffeine in either helps to speed up your metabolism.
In terms of how fast your system processes food, about 75 percent of the calories processed is dependent on your age, gender, body weight, body composition, and genetic makeup. The additional 25% is processed through the physical exercise you do throughout the day.
Speaking of physical exercise, attempt to work in a minimum of 30 minutes of exercise daily. Cardio is good for burning calories and will keep your metabolic process elevated long after you finish your exercise routine. Mix in a couple days each week of resistance training to create more muscle. The more muscle tissue you have, the much harder your metabolism has to work to always keep feeding all that muscle mass.

Turkey Nutrition Facts

Most of us like turkey and don’t restrict the bird to just the traditional Thanksgiving meal. But just what are the turkey nutrition facts? will it put us all to sleep or is that simply a myth? Read on for the facts about turkey nutrition.

But, before we get into all that, here are a few think about turkey (the bird) that you may or may not know:
  • At one point Benjamin Franklin proposed the turkey as the national bird, instead of the eagle
  • In 2012 it was determined that the “average” American consumed some sixteen pounds of turkey
  • The average Thanksgiving turkey is about 15 pounds
  • Since 1970 turkey consumption in the U.S. has increased over 100 %
  • About 242 million turkeys are raised annually
  • Combined, roughly 87 million turkeys are eaten at Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter
  • If you’re doing the math, this leaves about 155 million uneaten birds (many were then exported)
  • June is designated as National Turkey Lover’s month which seems out of place

Finally, to get the most enjoyment out of your meal cook the bird until the internal temperature is at least 165 degrees. To be sure you will need a meat thermometer so buy a good one.  For best results, allow the cooked turkey to cool for 20 minutes or so before you carve it. This time allows the juices to flow throughout the bird and it will be easier to carve. Eat your leftover turkey within 3 to 4 days.
