You’ve no doubt heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. After all, it sets the stage for the entire day ahead, helping you start off on the right foot and curb your appetite until lunchtime rolls around. If you find it harder and harder to get out of bed at all in the morning though, even with the strong appeal of a good meal, perhaps you’re not doing it right. To truly wake yourself up in the morning you’ll want to start your day with a blast of heat!
While many people turn to coffee to give a jolt to their morning routine, hot sauce is the perfect way to get your adrenaline pumping early in the morning. A taste of spice, from extremely hot peppers to super hot sauce, can actually make your body’s core temperature go up and your heart start pumping. Your body then releases endorphins, which can help lift your mood and help kick-start your day. That blast of heat in the morning can also help curb your appetite, potentially keeping you from snacking before lunchtime hits.
If you’re ready to incorporate hot sauce into breakfast, there are all kinds of ways to do it. In addition, there are all kinds of flavors of hot sauce out there, from mild to those super hot sauces. Hot sauce works particularly well with breakfast foods such as casseroles, breakfast burritos and even French toast. You can certainly use your imagination when cooking, or take some inspiration from some of the best hot sauce-infused recipes out there. If you don’t have a lot of time to cook, try topping quick meals such as bacon and oatmeal with hot sauce. Don’t be afraid to experiment new ways to add a blast of heat and start your morning off right.
