Breakfast is often called the most important meal of the day. If you start your day with a healthy hormone breakfast, it will help you start the day with long lasting energy and improve your mood and focus.
Here are the 3 tips to make a healthy hormone breakfast.
1. Choose high-fiber carbohydrates
Fiber keeps you full longer as it slows down digestion and stabilizes your blood sugar. Also, fiber supports your gut health as it is an important energy source for the gut bacteria.
2. Add some proteins and healthy fats
Protein helps you feel fuller longer. When you add fiber, proteins, and some healthy fats to your meals, you can avoid the blood sugar spike that causes uncomfortable symptoms such as fatigue, sleepiness, brain fog, sugar cravings, and anxiety.
