3 Smoothie Bowls To Keep You From Skipping Breakfast

Smoothie

Are you one of those people who are fond of skipping breakfast? You shouldn’t skip the most important meal of the day because your body will be affected by that “lazy” or “busy” decision of yours. The body undergoes a long fast because of the sleep and as you wake, you will either be hungry or not. But even if you are not hungry, you still need to put a bit of content in your stomach. You can either drink a fruit smoothie or eat a smoothie bowl.

Why do you have to eat for breakfast even if you are not hungry? If you do not eat an hour or two after waking up, your glucose levels will drop. This will make you cranky, exhausted and worse, “hangry”. (Hangry is the combination of angry and hungry.)

Also, if you fail to eat breakfast, your metabolism will also slow down because there is no food to grind. This can hurt you even more if you are trying to lose weight. Aside from that, your body will become stressed and if you are stressed, you will not be feeling well overall.

Skipping breakfast can also have a bad effect to your heart especially if you fail to eat breakfast consistently. There is a 27% increase in chances that you will have a heart attack or die due to a heart problem.

These are just some of the important reasons why you need to stop skipping breakfast and start eating. If you are lazy or busy, there are ways to prepare your meal without taking too much time. And these meals are very healthy as well. Is it tasty? You bet it is! These 3 smoothie bowls to keep you from skipping breakfast are truly mouth-watering and very delicious.
