The importance of breakfast

It’s an unreplaceable meal: a healthy and nourishing breakfast helps boost and speed up the metabolism. Eating a rich and balanced meal in the morning gives you all the energy you need to have a dynamic day.

What to eat?You should choose food that is rich in vitamins , minerals and fiber, that gives you a real boost and a longer sensation of fullness and doesn’t strain the digestive system.

The benefits of a savoury breakfast

The so-very-Italian habit of “cappuccino and brioche” isn’t always the right choice in terms of nutrition. It’s an exception to the rule to be made occasionally, but in daily life you should eat a balanced diet.

For breakfast you should choose proteins and the healthy carbs of fruit and avoid refined sugar.
