Healthy breakfast based on rusks with sunflower honey and chia seeds … a tasty pairing to accompany with a good coffee? Not only that, but also an energetic and satiating sweet breakfast!
This breakfast presents all the useful macronutrients to start the day full of energy. Let’s see how.
There are complex carbohydrates with a low glycemic index represented by rye bread and simple carbohydrates represented by fresh fruit and homemade fruit compote.

In essence, a preparation that, although simple, is well inspired by healthy eating. I appreciate it not only as a nutritionist in preparing food plans for my patients, but also personally, as part of my daily diet.
I always add chia seeds to my breakfast because they have useful properties for the body’s well-being: they contain the essential amino acids that our body cannot synthesize and that are useful for building the protein structure. Moreover, they are rich in omega 3 fatty acids with anti-inflammatory effect, they give a good sense of satiety by taking on a mucilaginous consistency in the stomach and have a beneficial effect in case of sluggish intestine.

We see some of these studies whose full text can be traced back by following the links on the bibliography page.

I felt part of a group of professionals who have the same thought and the same desire to put into practice what the scientific evidence is supporting even in the nutritional field.
Functional medicine is spreading exponentially in other states such as the United States, England and New Zealand. Here in Italy we are still in its infancy, but the desire to get involved and spread it is very strong.
During the Symposium, foreign and Italian professionals of high level and culture in functional medicine, such as Dr. Fasano, Dr. Bevacqua and Dr. O’Brian – to name a few – had their speech .

Movement and nutrition are an inseparable combination to reach a state of physical and mental wellness. A fair amount of physical activity should be provided in the daily life of all of us.
The type and intensity of training depend on many factors such as age, gender, health conditions and chronic stress. It would be necessary to find the right dose of duration and quality of activity to benefit from the movement and to prevent this from becoming a source of further stress.

I love this breakfast when I am in a hurry and I want in any case to eat something healthy, sweet and filling.
You need two or three wholemeal rusks, honey (in this case I used a sunflower organic honey) and a spoon of peeled hemp seeds. I suggest you to add a seasonal fresh fruit and a cup of coffee or tea and semi-skimmed milk.
