06 Oct Mediterranean breakfasts: Discover the benefits of starting the day with a good Serrano ham toast
On too many occasions we have been said that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Certainly, sometimes, we tend to take away from the dedication it deserves. Either because of the time, which can be scarce at those early hours, or because of the ignorance of great foods that can help us boost ourselves from the first moment of the day with energy and in a healthy way. At El Colmado, we want to accompany you from the first moment of your new day, so we offer you Mediterranean breakfasts according to the Spanish restaurant in Berlin that we are.
Spanish gastronomy is known worldwide for different dishes, as well as ways of tasting them, and countless foods. Therefore, in an effort to represent the Spanish gastronomic culture, which we carry as our flag, it is relatively easy and comfortable to find a space, such as breakfast, where to continue exploring the capacity and quality of Spanish gastronomy. Therefore, Mediterranean breakfasts can be made up of different foods to achieve that magical and perfect combination between healthy and tasty. As it could not be otherwise, there is no other food more appealing than Serrano ham, the reference in Spanish gastronomy and the maximum exponent of the best flavour.
BENEFIT OF MEDITERRANEAN BREAKFAST WITH SERRANO HAM
Despite the fact that there are voices that accuse Serrano ham as a food with more fat than required, it has been proven that the inclusion of this product in the now famous Mediterranean breakfasts is a success due to the great benefits it brings to health.
First of all, we must emphasize that Serrano ham has a high content of monounsaturated fatty acids and does not have saturated fat. In fact, after olive oil, Serrano ham is an important source of oleic acid. These characteristic places it as a direct agent to help control cholesterol.
Second, it is a food that has few calories, it only has 250 calories per 100 grams of product. In this context, it is also relevant to note that it is a great source of protein, for every 100 grams of product you will get 43 grams of protein, a very considerable figure because it is not only a great energy supply but also a direct aid for muscle development.
Third, how could it be otherwise, serrano ham is a source of vitamins, it has a high level of vitamins B and D. On the one hand, vitamin B is in charge of converting food into energy and help to keep the nervous, cardiovascular and immune systems in proper functioning. On the other hand, vitamin D is in charge of protecting bone health.
Finally, its zinc content helps us concentrate, pay attention and retain memory issues, a great companion to begin to clear the mind and keep us active the whole day.
Serrano ham is the main actor in Mediterranean breakfasts, we invite you to come and try out El Colmado, the Spanish restaurant in Berlin where we import this magnificent food with an incomparable flavour.
