The first thing that you eat during the day plays a very pivotal role. It sets your tone for the rest of the day. Among the myriad of choices available, choosing the right food item is very important. There are many things that act as a nutritional powerhouse and offer a plethora of benefits that can positively impact your overall well-being. Let's delve into a few things that you can consume before you start your day.

Warm water or detox water

Start your day with warm or detox water. Lukewarm water will help you clear your gut and set the right tone for the day. Some people also prefer starting their day with detox water, which is again equally beneficial. 

Fruit juice

Make sure you consume fresh fruit juice and not the packaged juice which is high on preservatives.  Also, don’t add sugar to the juice as sugar as it can boost your blood sugar levels on an empty stomach. This also puts a lot of strain on your pancreas.

Bananas

Bananas are a nutrient-dense fruit, packed with vitamins and minerals crucial for a healthy start to your day. They are an excellent source of vitamin C, potassium, vitamin B6, and dietary fibre. This nutritional profile not only supports your immune system but also aids in digestion and helps maintain optimal heart health. Also, for their carbohydrate content, bananas provide a natural and easily digestible source of energy. The carbohydrates, primarily in the form of natural sugars like glucose, fructose, and sucrose, offer a quick energy boost, while the fibre ensures a gradual release, promoting sustained energy levels throughout the morning.

Oatmeal 

Oatmeal creates a protective lining around the stomach which prevents hydrochloric acid from damaging it. It also contains soluble fibre which lowers cholesterol.

Honey

This increases the level of serotonin. This feel-good chemical is a must when you want to start your day on a high.
