Top Reasons to Eat Yogurt in the Morning
Do you struggle to decide what you should eat in the morning hours? Are you looking for something that’s both delicious and good for your body?
Well, you’re in luck. Yogurt is the answer. There’s no shortage of reasons to eat yogurt in the morning, including:
Soothes the digestive system: From facilitating proper digestion to soothing an inflamed digestive system, yogurt can help.
Immunity boost: Minerals such as magnesium, zinc, and selenium can give your immune system a boost. And that’s always a good thing.
Enhanced bone health: Did you know that the average cup of yogurt contains 275 mg of calcium? This helps to keep your bones strong and healthy, while also maintaining proper density.
Helps you recover after a workout: If you’re the type of person who enjoys a morning workout, you know the importance of following it up with the proper diet. Yogurt is full of protein, which provides the amino acids your body needs to repair its muscles. It can also give you an energy boost for the rest of the day.
Tip: look for full fat yogurt with no added sugar.
While these are among the top reasons to eat yogurt in the morning, many other benefits could work in your favor. If you’ve yet to add this to your morning diet, now’s the time to give it a try.
