Most cereal is a combination of wheat, oats, corn and other grains, which are usually genetically engineered ingredients, plus high-fructose corn syrup, sugar, artificial color and flavor, and toxic preservatives such as cancer-causing BHT. Cereals marketed to children are the worst offenders.
I don't recommend eating grain carbs for breakfast, even if it doesn't have any added sugars or food additives. Instead, I recommend focusing on protein for breakfast, such as easily-digested plant-based protein shakes. Do you know protein is needed within 30 minutes upon rising in the morning to activate your thyroid? Look for high quality complete protein derived from whole foods that've been minimally processed. This ensures it still contains all the beneficial amino acids and other nutrients, such as vitamins, minerals, prebiotics and antioxidants.
A complete protein (or whole protein) is a source of protein that contains an adequate proportion of all nine of the essential amino acids necessary for the dietary needs of humans or other animals. Some incomplete protein sources may contain all essential amino acids, but a complete protein contains them in correct proportions for supporting biological functions in the human body. Apart from some exceptions such as quinoa or soybeans, the majority of plant proteins are incomplete because they lack at least one essential amino acid. However, you can combine complementary plant sources to create a nutritionally complete protein. Consuming a mixture of plant-based protein sources can increase the biological value of food.
Generally, proteins derived from animal foods (meats, fish, poultry, cheese, eggs, yogurt, and milk) are complete. But they might be the wrong type of foods for you depending on your nutritional type. Animal proteins are also much harder to digest because cooking destroys the enzymes, and most likely you've already have enzyme deficiency if you take medications, eat a poor diet or over age 40. Supplement with Food Enzymes will help with the digestion.
Some people prefer to eat raw eggs, meat or seafood to get more nutrients and enzymes. Just be aware, these foods are usually high in parasites. According to studies, 90% of Americans have parasites in their body, including children. That's why I recommend periodic parasite cleanses.
Being healthy doesn't have to be complicated. Everyone of us was born with a brilliant body that knows how to stay healthy. All we need to do is feed our body real nutrients so that we can feel balanced and dis-ease free!
