[Dutch Lady Breakfast Challenge] How I Start My Mornings Strong

A strong day needs a strong start. A strong start would give me the much needed boost to get through the day. At least, until the mandatory afternoon nap kicks in later. ANYWAY, let me walk you through my morning routine. 

5:15am - Wake up at that ungodly hour to get ready for bootcamp and/or hiking at Gasing Hill. 
5:45am - Bootcamp or hiking
7:00am - My favourite activity...eating BREAKFAST!

As the saying goes, eat breakfast like a king/queen, lunch like a prince/princess and dinner like a pauper. As you can imagine, breakfast is very important to me as it gives me the fuel I need after a good workout to concentrate my day's schedule. After a good night of sleep, technically my body would have fasted for 8-12 hours. Hence why the first meal of the day is called breakfast. 

Sadly, while we all know a nutritious breakfast is important, it is often the most neglected meal of the day as we are often swamped with getting to work and eh-hem, checking social media. Guilty as charge. Luckily for me, I operate mostly from home now and thanks to Dutch Lady PureFarm milk, can get  the nutrients my body needs from a glass of milk. It's so convenient leh! 

You maybe thinking - eh I eat breakfast what. Nasi lemak la, nasi goreng, roti canai....kaya toast....
Yes, that's all fine and all but we all know that our beloved Malaysian food aren't always the most balanced in nutrients. But by drinking just one cup of milk a day, it can help fulfill more than 50% of your body's nutrients requirements! 

Eh but isn't milk filled with calcium and is good for old people and babies only? 
Ye, milk is rich in calcium, but milk actually provides other essential nutrients that the body cannot generate on its own, such as protein. Moreover, a glass of milk at breakfast helps prepare our body to absorb more goodness from meals for the rest of the day. 

As Malaysia’s No.1 milk, drinking a glass of Dutch Lady PureFarm milk will give our bodies the essential nutrients it needs, such as:
· Protein helps build and repair the tissues in our body so that it will be in good condition;
· Calcium is the key to the growth and development of strong bones and teeth for children, and helps adults maintain healthy bone mass to ensure an active lifestyle;
· Vitamin A allows our eyes to function properly and help us stay focused and alert, both at school and at work;
· Vitamin B2 supports the release of energy from carbohydrates, fats and proteins;
· Vitamin D aids the absorption and utilisation of calcium and phosphorus.

As they say prevention is better than cure so why wait to drink your milk when you are older? So why wait and come join me now in starting my day strong with a good workout (or not, maybe not at 545am) and a hearty breakfast with a cup of delicious creamy Dutch Lady PureFarm milk!
