What is part of a complete breakfast?Ken Bendor
A complete breakfast is one that will satisfy you, give you energy, and be nutritious. To eat something that will keep you full, stay away from simple carbohydrates such as white flour and sugar.
Pancakes, waffles, syrups, sugar (for coffee or tea) and white bread are all made up of these simple carbs. Eating complex carbs will ensure that you won’t get hungry for a longer period of time.
Complex carbs can be found in anything made of 100% whole wheat flour. Cereals, oatmeal, fruits and vegetables are good examples. You also want to eat a breakfast that will give you energy so you can function properly.
Complex carbs are digested slowly. They will give you a steady supply of energy for a long time unlike simple carbs which are digested quickly, give you a sugar rush and leave you tired and hungry soon after eating them.
The Bottom Line
A breakfast should also be healthy. It should contain some vitamins and minerals (100% real fruit fruit/vegetable juice, whole fruits/vegetables) as well as protein (low fat milk, turkey products, eggs) and healthy fats (vegetable oil/spreads, fatty vegetables).
