Most people do not give much importance to breakfast, especially if they leave early in a hurry to work or college, however this is the most important meal of our day and you have to take the time to eat a healthy breakfast to start the day with energy.

When you hear about a breakfast of oranges and honey, you probably think of the classic orange juice squeezed with an added honey. This proposal is even healthier than that. Oranges, like other fruits such as lemon, are very rich in vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant that is very good for our body. Miracles are often attributed to orange juice, which are clearly not true, drinking orange juice may raise your defenses but it will not prevent you from catching the flu. The best option before taking orange juice is to consume this fruit in its entirety. In a single glass of orange juice, three and a half oranges enter more or less, which is equivalent to 210 calories, which on top of that by consuming only the juice we have eliminated an essential part of the fruit, which is fiber.

Orange juice is very rich in fructose, which is not very beneficial since it makes us resistant to insulin, causing hunger, and causing us to gain weight. The pulp of the orange is rich in pectins, a type of soluble fiber that blocks the absorption of cholesterol in the intestine, thus taking care of our heart health.

A whole orange with honey considerably increases our defenses, helps fight inflammation and is a natural remedy very rich in antioxidants that combines the benefits of these two foods.

Benefits of consuming orange and honey in the morning:

  1. Combined orange and honey are an excellent source of natural energy, ideal to start our day.
  2. It is a natural remedy with antimicrobial properties.
  3. It is a highly recommended breakfast for children and the elderly who have low defenses, as well as for the general population in the winter when we have a sore throat, flu or allergies.
  4. It is advisable to consume oranges with honey on an empty stomach, that is, on an empty stomach, before having breakfast. Since this way our body will be able to absorb its medicinal components better and more efficiently.

What are you waiting for to start your day in a healthy way !!?
