We understand that your cab is waiting, or your children are still far away from getting ready for school, and you need to hurry up so that everyone can reach their respective places in time!
But skipping breakfast is not the solution!
Breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day. It fuels up your body with the right nutrition that helps you take up the challenges of the day.
Your body is 70% water so why do you ignore this elixir of life?
It plays a critical role in the functioning of your overall body. Drinking water not only replenishes your body with enough fluids but also makes you energetic.
It hydrates your body and helps in flushing out toxins from your body. It also makes your stomach fuller which means that no more overeating or consuming any unhealthy food that can actually harm your body.
Women carry the world on their shoulders, and let’s be honest, this ‘world’ is heavy! So how are you going to continue doing that if you do not have strong bones?Calcium is very much important to ensure strong bones and teeth. It is also instrumental in the proper functioning of your nervous system and heart. Not having enough calcium in your diet can also result in anxiety, depression and lack of sleeping. So include dairy products like yogurt, cheese, curd and milk in your diet to have enough calcium in your body!
All women are superheroes! So how about giving your superpowers a boost by including iron-rich foods in your diet?
Iron plans an important role in creating hemoglobin in your body which is responsible for carrying oxygen in your blood. Women need more iron every day because they lose blood during menstruation.
Lack of iron in blood results in anemia (which is one of the most common deficiencies in women). An adolescent woman should take at least 15g of iron per day and an adult woman should take at least 18g iron per day. Iron rich food includes nuts, whole grains, beans and dark leafy vegetables like spinach!
Folic acid or folate is a part of the Vitamin B group that is essential for the overall body’s health. It is even more important for women who are planning a baby. Folate also lowers the risk of heart diseases and keeps certain types of cancer away.
So even if you are not planning on getting pregnant, including it in your diet is a good decision. Because not having enough folate can result in irritability and fatigue. Folate and Vit B rich foods include lettuce, broccoli, ground beef, beef liver, and brussels sprouts.
