I wake up at five in the morning everyday. Though I’ve somewhat become a morning person, there are just some days when I find it hard to eat breakfast. If you asked me a few years ago what my breakfast is, I’d quickly say a cup of coffee or sometimes just water but now that I’m trying to live a healthier lifestyle, I make sure I eat something (anything!) for breakfast because it’s the most important meal of the day.
On most days I go for my favorite breakfast, not only is it easy to prepare it’s also healthy and packed with nutrients.
Meet the trifecta that makes my basic breakfast.
Avocado, oatmeal and Selecta Fortified Milk. Basic yet packs power.
Would you believe me if I tell you, it took me 30 years to finally eat avocado? Yep. I only eat banana, mango and apple but now that I’ve discovered more fruits including avocado and its wonderful benefits. Now it’s become one of my favorite fruits! Avocado is abundant in Vitamin K, Folate, Vitamin C, Potassium, Vitamin B5, Vitamin B6, and Vitamin E.
Another power food that I’ve come to love is oats. On days when I feel like I need an extra boost of energy, I trade my usual bread with oats. This whole grain food packs nutritional value–carbohydrate, protein, soluble-fibre–and reduces the risk of diabetes (which unfortunately I am predisposition for). I also notice that when I eat a bowl of oatmeal for breakfast, my endurance is better letting me workout longer.
SELECTA FORTIFIED MILK
Milk is an indispensable beverage in our home. It’s such a staple in our pantry coz I use it in my smoothies, coffee, shakes and even when I cook (eggs & pancakes are more fluffier with it!). And because I’m not getting any younger, I’ve incorporated milk in my diet because I don’t want to grow old with brittle bones & weak immune system. So it’s no-brainer for me to have a serving of Selecta Fortified Milk in the morning to help me jumpstart my day.
Selecta Fortified Milk is a milk that is fortified with more vitamins and minerals to provide one’s daily nutritional needs. It’s an excellent source of essential nutrients primarily Calcium, Protein, Vitamin A, Vitamin D3, Iron, Vitamin B1, Vitamin B2, Vitamin B3, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12 and Magnesium.
Selecta Fortified Milk is competitively priced and affordable–1 liter is at Php 66 and 245 ml is at Php 21.
I’ve made a commitment to live healthier and at Php 21 a day, I think I can do just that. With Selecta Fortified Milk, I can get the nutrition I need within my budget and when I purchase Selecta Fortified Milk promo pack (buy 2) I get to save Php 15!
On days when I’m in a hurry, I prepare my oats, add Selecta Fortified Milk and top it off with slices of avocado and voila, my basic yet nutritionally packed breakfast is ready even if I’m on the go. It’s so filling having it for breakfast at 5 gives me enough energy to finish my morning work out, run errands and do chores without feeling any hunger pangs in between.
No wonder my nutritionist and doctor have both advised me to make it a habit to drink at least a glass of milk a day. I take it during breakfast to warm my tummy; in the afternoon whenever I feel like snacking on junk food, I opt for milk instead– I find the vanilla-like taste of Selecta Fortified Milk perfect to wash down dry nuts or vegetable crackers–to curb my cravings; or at night before bed time to help induce sleep. However I drink it or whatever time I prefer doesn’t matter, as long as I have my daily serving of Selecta Fortified Milk in order for me to achieve strong bones, body and brain.
