Try Blossom Water with breakfast. It may just change the way you think of breakfast.
We’ve all heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It boosts metabolism, elevates mood, and feeds the brain. Breakfast breaks our night-long fast so that our bodies do not have to resort to the calorie conserving measures of starvation mode.
Food, just like the air we breathe, is a key source of the fuel we need to make the energy for all our daily activities, be they physical, mental, or emotional. It is no big leap to conclude that getting good nutrition at the start of the day is fundamental to good health. But just as what we eat can flavor the quality of our day, how we eat it affects our body’s ability to assimilate the good things we feed ourselves.
Ever rush through a healthy breakfast only to feel afterward as if the food just sat there, like a brick, in your stomach? When we rush through a meal, or eat under stress, we essentially shut down our digestive system. This reaction is called the stress response; it’s an evolutionary fight-or-flight survival mechanism. Our metabolic energy gets rerouted away from digestion to parts of the body better equipped to handle a perceived threat (the thing that is causing us to rush or feel stress). Whether that threat is a saber-toothed tiger or a looming project deadline, the response is the same. The result is bad digestion.
On the other hand, if we relax and enjoy breakfast, our bodies can properly assimilate nutrients, we digest better, and metabolism benefits. According to traditional Chinese medicine, enjoyment of food is essential to good digestion and health. Pleasing flavors, textures, smells and even colors contribute to stimulating enjoyment and enhancing digestion.
This is where Blossom Water enters the meal. Smell is the main determinant of flavor. The tongue can interpret only five basic taste sensations: sweet, sour, bitter, salty and savory. All other tastes are determined by smell! Blossom Water’s floral enhanced water flavors are all exceptionally aromatic. They smell good; good smelling things taste better; pleasing flavors do great things for food enjoyment, digestion, and health. Think of it as aromatherapy for your breakfast palate.
