The Benefits of a Nutritious Breakfast

Eating a homemade breakfast of real foods is a big step in the right direction toward adopting a pure lifestyle. Leave sugary cereals, yogurts, and pastries in the dust. The perfect breakfast blends complex carbohydrates with protein and fat for satiety. That may be a bowl of quinoa porridge topped with nuts and seeds or a fruit smoothie with flax seed and protein powder. Eggs offer an excellent source of complete vegetarian protein in addition to B vitamins and vitamin A.

For children, a balanced breakfast is essential to optimal health. After a night without food, they literally need to “break the fast” and fuel their growing bodies with healthy carbohydrates, proteins, and fats. In The Pure Kitchen, you’ll find over a dozen recipes to please both kids and adults alike. From sweet mango rice porridge to whole grain pancakes to refreshing and creamy smoothies, you’re guaranteed to find a breakfast that will kick your day off with an energized bang.
