Have in mind that the kind of breakfast you should eat depends on the activity you are going to do that day. If you are going to exercise or not, the intensity of your physical activity, etc.
It is important to eat breakfast, but when you get up early in the morning to go out for a bike ride you don’t want to stuff yourself or you will feel bloated while riding your bike, and that is a very uncomfortable feeling.
If you have to hurry every morning before you go out to work you don’t want to spend hours cooking and eating breakfast. You don’t want eat a lot either, just the proper amount of food with the best quality of ingredients to keep you strong and sharp the first hours of your day.
So here there are some examples:
BAKED EGG IN AVOCADO
1 avocado, pitted
salt & pepper, to taste
Preheat oven to 425F. Crack the first egg in a bowl, then pour gently into the hole of one of the avocado halves. Do the same for the 2nd egg. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake for 10-15 minutes, depending on how cooked you like your eggs.
MIXED BERRY AND YOGURT SMOOTHIE
BREAKFAST FOR A CYCLIST COMMUTER
Each day is born with a sunrise
and ends in a sunset, the same way we
open our eyes to see the light,
and close them to hear the dark.
You have no control over
how your story begins or ends.
But by now, you should know that
all things have an ending.
Every spark returns to darkness.
Every sound returns to silence.
And every flower returns to sleep
with the earth.
The journey of the sun
and moon is predictable.
is your ultimate
MASSAGE RELAXATION SPA DAY
Dads don’t need much. Just a little gift to know that their work is appreciated. BUT if you really wanted to, he probably wouldn’t mind if you took the time to look around to get him something more suitable to his likings:
- Is he a geeky dad?
- Is he the executive type?
- Does he love sports, and what kind?
- Is he metro-sexual and super-neat?
- Does he like traveling?
- Does he like music, plays a certain musical instrument?
- Maybe your dad is the scientific one?
ALL IN ONE CHARGING STATION
Think of all the things Dad did for you: Life lessons, guidance, and unconditional love. Maybe your dad would love an expensive drone that will show up all the other dads at the park. Or a super-slick TV that doesn’t look like all the others.
A great idea would be to give him a gift card for him to spend in a relaxing environment like a spa, so he can get a massage with herbs and lotions, facial masks, a haircut, sauna, and then go with him and the whole family to a fancy restaurant for dinner.
Send your dad to the country or place he has always dreamed of visiting and he has never been able to go for one reason or another. You can find out when he has time off and which are his plans. I assure you, he will be very happy.
REVOLIGHTS FOR HIS BICYCLE
I am very active in my LINKEDIN account. I just published my latest medical article there and want to share it here:
Cyclist Frenchman Robert Marchand set a new world record when he cycled 22.547 kilometers (about 14 miles) in an hour — at the age of 105. “I am not here to be champion. I am here to prove that at 105 years old you can still ride a bike,” Marchand said.
Longevity is associated to genetic factors, but a healthy attitude and lifestyle contribute greatly to your lifespan.
“The most difficult problem is to get enough old people, especially those aged 100 or more, to take part in such a study. Interestingly, the genetic effects are much more evident in 100-year-olds than in 95-year-olds”, notes the first author of the report, Dr. Friederike Flachsbart of the Institute of Clinical Molecular Biology at Kiel University.
A research group in the Faculty of Medicine at the Christian-Albrechts-University in Kiel (CAU) has now confirmed this assumption by comparing DNA samples taken from 388 German centenarians with those from 731 younger people.
Previously, in September 2008, an American research team led by Bradley J. Willcox had published in PNAS a study that indicated a higher frequency of this genetic variation in long-lived Americans of Japanese origin (ages 95 and above). Professor Almut Nebel, the scientific leader of the “Research Group for Healthy Ageing” at Kiel, comments:
“That published result is only of scientific value if it can be confirmed in a study with an independently chosen sample population. Without that there must still remain a tinge of doubt. We have now eliminated that uncertainty about the connection between FOXO3A and longevity, both by our results from the German sample study and by the support from our French partners in Paris, whose research on French centenarians showed the same trend. This discovery is of particular importance as there are genetic differences between Japanese and European people. We can now conclude that this gene is probably important as a factor in longevity throughout the world.”
