Hey, you all. Hope you all are doing well. Bringing some insights into the very complicated question of daily routine. Should you have breakfast in your morning routine? If yes, then should it be healthy or non-healthy?
Breakfast is a very important meal of the day. You are giving food to your gut after the break of long hours. So having breakfast is important. And it should be healthy mostly. You can sometimes have unhealthy snacks for breakfast. Depending on the situation, you should choose as healthy as possible.
Dr. Riddhi Nanda, An Ayurveda Nutritionist shares some good insights for consuming breakfast according to Ayurveda as well as modern science.
According to the science of Vedas, breakfast is an important part of the Ayurvedic daily regimen (Dincharya). It literally means ‘break-the-fast’. Skipping this meal imbalances the doshas (vata, pitta, kapha) and disturbs the pitta, which is responsible for anger control. This can cause irritability, temper tantrums, weight management issues and digestion problems, etc.
As per modern science Mornings tend to be hectic – there’s so much to do. And in all that rush, we tend to skip our breakfast . A healthy and nutritious breakfast keeps you going throughout the day. It acts as a fuel for your body and gives you the energy to get things done. If you skip this all-important meal, you could end up with health problems. So, make sure that you never skip breakfast.
