Vitality from Your Vitamin C
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 usually sit down and bite into my juicy, organic mango and orange for breakfast; I smile knowing that my body is ingesting alkalizing purity. Plus those two pieces of fruits were satiating at less than 200 calories.
In comparison to a Standard American Diet (SAD) the 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 Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) 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 Vitamin C in these oranges and mangoes is purifying to my cells and has strengthened my immune system. Vitamin C is one of many antioxidants. Antioxidants are nutrients that block some of the damage caused by free radicals.
- Free radicals are made when your body breaks down food or when you are exposed to tobacco smoke or radiation.
- The buildup of free radicals over time is largely responsible for the aging process.
- Free radicals may play a role in cancer, heart disease, and conditions like arthritis.
As always, eat clean, stay active and energize your life. It’s a Fit Fathers mantra and way of life.
