Marica Pellegrinelli and the benefits of a savory breakfast explained by the nutritionist

There are those who start the day with cappuccino and croissants and those who, on the contrary, do not intend to give up the pleasure of savory breakfast. Among the fans of the savory version of the morning meal – what we call an English breakfast – there is the Bergamo model Marica Pellegrini, 35 years old. While he is sweetly expecting the first daughter with boyfriend William Djoko (she already has two children born from love with her ex-husband Eros Ramazzotti), Marica Pellegrinelli shares a photo of her typical breakfast on Instagram: a mix of vegetables from the day before, heated and accompanied by the classic egg. «Savory breakfast, no hunger mid-morning, glycemic peak avoided, metabolism activated», writes the top, letting her followers know to also take a liquid vitamin D3 supplement (2 drops) for breakfast and to eat an orange.

Savory breakfast: benefits and indications from the nutritionist

Why is it worth giving a savory breakfast a chance, giving up sweets in favor of vegetables, eggs and cheese? As he recalls Dr. Sacha Sorrentino, nutritional biologist of Villa Brasini Beauty Clinic in Milan and Rome, «starting the day with a savory meal is equivalent to obtaining a greater protein intakepromoting a sense of satiety and keeping blood sugar levels stable. Hence the hunger attacks are under control for several hours after breakfast, as well as a good degree of mental clarity and physical vitality. On the contrary, sweet breakfasts, for example based on jam, industrial juices and biscuits, they tend to be full of empty calorieslinked to glycemic and insulinemic peaks which correspond to drops in concentration and a sense of tiredness throughout the day.”

Savory breakfast? Here's how to orient yourself

From theory to practice, how to create a balanced and healthy savory breakfast? Whether you are pregnant or not, “it is essential to achieve a balance of nutrients, favoring the mix of whole grains, lean proteins and healthy unsaturated fats» comments Dr. Sorrentino. «It is also important to adapt breakfast based on the type and intensity of physical activity practiced: nutritional needs on training days are different than on rest days. This is why customization always remains the key to success in obtaining the maximum benefit from every meal, breakfast included. A tip: always combine whole grains with lean proteins and good fats, for example avocado, extra virgin olive oil, dried fruit or seeds, very useful for the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins. And know that toasting bread (preferably fresh and wholemeal) allows a more gradual release of sugars into the blood, resulting in fewer nervous hunger attacks and increased sense of satiety during the post-breakfast hours.”
