Vitamin C for Breakfast

Oranges-Mangoes-FitFathers

Yes, breakfast can be considered the most important meal of the day, but that doesn’t mean it has to be drawn out into 700 to 900 caloric meals. So, as I sat down and bit into my juicy, organic mango and orange for breakfast I could only smile knowing that my body was ingesting alkalizing purity. Plus those two pieces of fruits were satiating and collectively less than 200 calories.

In comparison to a SAD (Standard American Diet) morning meal — which is slowly killing the population by way of chronic illness such as heart disease — there is absolutely no semblance between health degrading eggs, bacon and biscuits in relation to the promotion of fiber, Vitamin A, Vitamin C and Potassium. Oh, let’s not forget the cholesterol you avoid when eating foods that grow opposed to those that are born. This nurturing meal provided glucose to kick in my metabolism and delivered enough energy to jumpstart the day, which was all I needed. Especially since the body’s glycogen reserves can be called upon as needed for exercise or an active morning.

Moreover, since only 2% or so of the American population meet the RDA (Recommended Daily Allowance) for fiber, you should include this roughage in every meal whether it’s a fruit, vegetable or whole grains. Like a broom, fiber sweeps your GIT (gastrointestinal tract) clean and helps reduce cholesterol. Plus all this Vitamin C in these oranges and mangoes is purifying to my cells and has strengthened my immune system.

As always, eat clean, stay active and energize your life. It’s a Fit Fathers mantra and way of life.
