Don’t Skip Breakfast
When we are in a rush, it is easy to think that breakfast is an easy skip to save time. Breakfast is so crucial to your day, and you will find that there are quick and easy options to give your body the fuel it needs! Here are some of the top benefits for keeping breakfast a priority:
Breakfast regulates hunger
Start the day with a full stomach to keep you from craving unhealthy foods and snacking before lunch. Avoid a day of overeating by starting with a healthy, filling breakfast.
Start the day with fuel for the brain
Fill yourself with whole foods to fuel your brain for those long days. Try brain foods like whole grains, fruits, nuts and seeds to promote cellular health in the brain.
Pave the way for healthy choices
Healthy choices at the beginning of the day pave the way for more wise decisions throughout the day. Start your day off right with real food and real energy.
Keep Breakfast WHOLE
While it is important to start the day with a meal, it is even more important to make sure that meal is healthy and energy-packed. It is easy to ‘fill up’ on sugar cereals and processed products. But you should never sacrifice time for quality (or taste). Fill your body with the best of the best-- whole foods. Here are just a few of the main qualities to look for:
According to this article, “fiber helps regulate the body’s use of sugars, helping to keep hunger and blood sugar in check.” A fiber-filled breakfast will help to fill you up, and set you up for a successful day.
Complex carbohydrates provide the body with long-lasting energy. To keep you full and focused all day, choose a breakfast with complex carbs from whole foods.
According to the Mayo Clinic, a great breakfast combines protein, carbohydrates and healthy fats to keep you full longer with additional health benefits!
