A recent survey shows that many Canadians skip breakfast.
Nutritionists recommend preparing a quick breakfast of cereal with fruit and nuts, or a fruit and yogurt smoothie.
According to Chinese medicine, morning—from 6 AM to 10 AM, approximately—is when digestion is at its strongest. It therefore recommends eating the heaviest meal in the morning, so that we get the most out of it.
A ‘heavy meal’ means food that belongs to the Earth element: meat, fish, beans, eggs, dairy foods.
