Savory breakfast beats the sweet one: the first is healthier than the second

COLAZIONE SALATA

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but what is the composition of the perfect breakfast?

Nutritionists and researches often look for an answer to this question. The nutritionist Marco Perricone, interviewed by Vanity Fair, says that the typical Italian breakfast is less healthy than the continental one. Filippo Piva has written an article on GQItalia.

According to Perricone, the first meal of the day must be high in protein and savory, at most mixed. Fats, carbohydrates and proteins are important, and this choice of breakfast is more satisfying, allowing you to arrive at lunchtime without an unstoppable hunger.

Having a mixed, but mostly savory breakfast, helps obtain a better caloric portion of the nutrients for the muscles compared to fat cells. It’s a green light for eggs, one of the best solutions given their protein percentage, with bread with some spreadable cheese.

Beware of some foods, typical of our breakfasts which are not really healthy like packaged snacks, biscuits, which are excessively rich in saturated fats and refined sugars, also some types of cereals. It’s better to choose wholemeal or oat flakes.

Coffee, with or without sugar, a centrifuges or homemade juices is great as well, as they have less sugar than industrial products. A great pairing for a healthy breakfast.
