The best breakfast for men to prepare by their wives. It sounds funny, but it should be. You may find it strange to differentiate between what a man and a woman should eat. But in the end, it has been proven that men typically consume more calories during the day than gentle gender.
This means that their food needs to be not only healthy enough but also with more calories in order to have enough energy. Eating enough protein (meat, fish, eggs, nuts and dairy products) and complex carbohydrates is a must for a good start to the day. Here are the best snacks for men.
Vegetable omelette with cheese
We will not explain how to make an omelette because you are supposed to be aware. However, when it comes to men’s snacks, it is also good to add any vegetables – onions, peppers, mushrooms, etc. For the finish, add cheese and sprinkle with parsley omelet, arugula, spinach leaves or just serve the omelet along with lettuce. Extremely healthy and energy-giving breakfast!
Whole-grain bread sandwich
As we said in the beginning, protein is very important for men, which means you shouldn’t have to worry about adding some kind of meat to the sandwich – fillet or ham, for example. Smoked meats as well as plain sausages filled with colorings and preservatives are not recommended. And why not a sandwich with some fish (rich in omega-3 fatty acids) or with cheese and boiled egg. Don’t forget about lettuce, iceberg, spinach, arugula or green onion.
Milk with oatmeal
We also talked about complex carbohydrates, which are mostly found in legumes, but you will probably want a bean soup or lentil snack for breakfast.
Complex carbohydrates as well as starch (recommended for all those who work hard or are athletes) are found in both cereals and seeds. And preparing oatmeal with milk does not require much skill or time. Note, however, that we are talking about cereals, not cornflakes – these are two completely different foods, and the second would offer your body only empty calories – it will neither satiate nor give you energy.
Carbohydrates are the main energy source of the body. Not only do they supply the muscles with the energy they need, they are also responsible for the proper functioning of the central nervous system. This is due to the fact that the brain uses them as a major energy source.
Insufficient carbohydrate intake leads to hypoglycaemia – low blood sugar. The condition is characterized by fatigue, drowsiness, irritability, even loss of consciousness. Carbohydrates are divided into two main categories: simple and complex. Simple carbohydrates pass through the digestive system very quickly, almost instantly.
Sweetened foods are made up of such carbohydrates. These are cookies, sweets, sugar, honey. Complex carbohydrates are single carbohydrates that are combined into one. Before supplying the body with energy, they are first broken down in the digestive tract. Complex carbohydrates are more favorable for blood sugar levels because they supply the body with glucose for a longer time. Once the blood sugar level is constant, one feels fresh and energized.
