Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. This is because the right food will help give your body the best start. It provides a whole bunch of benefits which include starting your digestive system off in the best way and even improving your overall mood.

Most foods are okay to have for breakfast but there are some that are not advisable. You already know that eating sweets, cakes, ice cream and so on are not the best breakfast ideas. But there are also some healthy foods that you should not be eating first thing in the morning either. See 5 of them below.

1. Citrus fruits

You may imagine that having oranges or grapefruits in the morning is one of the healthiest ways to start your day. But keep in mind that citrus fruits can irritate your lower oesophagus if eaten on an empty stomach.

2. Bananas

They can lead to a sharp increase in the level of magnesium in your bloodstream if you eat them first thing in the morning. This could potentially harm your heart.

3. Yogurt

Yogurt is not a completely bad breakfast idea. The main issue here is that it's better to eat it after having other meals as this is the best way to get all the benefits. Yogurt contains beneficial lactic acid bacteria which can be killed by your stomach's hydrochloric acid if you eat it before anything else.

4. Pastries

These are a no-no since they contain processed sugar. They can be way too much for the liver to handle first thing in the morning.

5. Carbonated drinks

A lot of people see this as a good source of caffeine but the thing is, drinking cold soda for breakfast can do damage to your stomach's mucous membrane.

If you are looking for the best meals to eat in the morning, consider such options as watermelon, eggs, oatmeal, and cornmeal.
