Breakfast! We hear repeatedly how important it is, but what is the truth behind this statement?
The reading and research I have done would confirm that this is a factual statement. Being in the healthcare field, I decided not only to research this subject, but I tried a few days of eating breakfast vs. going without. The conclusion I have come to, is that it is, in fact, a true statement.
A healthy breakfast in the morning is like putting gas in the tank of your car. A full tank of gas will get you to wherever you need to go that day. An empty tank won’t get you very far and can cause multiple problems for you. The same is true with eating breakfast. A good healthy and nutritious breakfast will get your metabolism going, help you focus and give you the energy you need to get through to lunch or throughout the day. Doctors recommend a combination of carbohydrates, fiber and lean protein for breakfast.
On the go and in a hurry? Consider protein shakes, a yogurt bowl with your cereal added on top, or pack breakfast for the car ride!
A healthy breakfast to start your day will help you get the nutrients that your body needs. Without it, you may have low blood sugar, feel sluggish and lack the energy you need to tackle your day, so don’t skip it. Make it a priority to start your day in a positive, healthy way!
