Healthy Vegetarian Breakfast Ideas

A good breakfast can help give you the energy you need to face the day.

A healthy breakfast includes whole grains, low-fat protein, fruits and vegetables, and low-fat dairy. Research has shown that people who eat breakfast everyday are healthier than those that don’t. Plus, if you are trying to lose weight eating a healthy vegetarian breakfast can help in faster weight loss.

Here are some easy, healthy vegetarian breakfast options that are nutritious & ensure an energetic start to a busy day.

1.Porridge

Porridge is the most healthy vegetarian breakfast idea. It is rich in minerals and has high fiber content that keeps blood sugar under control. Use fresh fruits for natural sweetness or sprinkle some raisins and almonds to make your porridge crunchy.

2. Muesli
Muesli is a great breakfast choice as it has raisins, almonds and four different grains. It can be served with both milk and yogurt. You can creatively garnish the muesli and serve it up as a quick breakfast meal.

3. Oatmeal
A bowl of oats in the morning is great for those suffering high cholesterol and diabetes, provided you don’t add extra sugar to it. The high fiber content in oats balances the blood sugar, and relieves people prone to depression.

4. Smoothie

Create a breakfast smoothie by combining non-fat yogurt, strawberries, bananas, blueberries or other fresh fruit in a blender. If you prefer a thicker smoothie, try adding some oats to help thicken it and add fiber at the same time.

5. Poha/Upma Crispies

The Poha and Upma version of rice/Suji Crispies is popular in Indian households as a healthy vegetarian breakfast idea, and makes for a light and healthy breakfast. But make sure your Poha/Upma is only lightly sauteed.

Weight Reduction Tips

Reducing weight is increasingly becoming popular across the world. Sedentary lifestyle and increasing number of lifestyle related therapeutic conditions are further propelling everyone towards wellness and fitness. The most common  lifestyle disorder symptom is weight gain. Fortunately it is also the easiest to control and manage provided slight changes are made in the current lifestyle. Weight reduction is possible with the right approach towards what we eat through out the day and the activities that we indulge in.

Here are a few weight reduction tips to lose weight.

Don’t starve yourself: The most common myth amongst people for weight reduction is a strict diet. Few go on yo-yo or crash diet, low calorie diets, atkins diet, banana diet etc. But they fail to reduce weight. Starving sends the message of not enough food and the body slows down the metabolism reducing the speed of calorie burn. Thus fat and the extra pounds burn much more  slower than before making weight reduction difficult.

Don’t skip breakfast: If you skip the nutrition at breakfast then there is seldom chance that you would make it later in the day. Skipping breakfast lowers the metabolism and lack of nutrition makes the body become weak and vulnerable to eating snacks and junk food later in the day. Eat healthy food for breakfast and you would feel fuller and eat less too.

Eat meals on time: Non timely meals disturb the body metabolic cycle making it difficult for the body to adapt to a schedule. Also eating meals late makes you tend to over eat because staying hungry for longer makes you feel hungrier psychology resulting in overeating. Hunger reduces the efficiency of the body reducing the metabolism, hence the weight reduction. Time your meals and watch the progress.
