Making Your Breakfast Healthier
There are two reasons why the statement "Breakfast is the most important meal of the day" is true: Firstly, it is true because, when it comes time for breakfast, you have been sleeping all night and will literally be "breaking a fast"; Secondly, it is true because your breakfast foods will be the foods you are starting your day with! While many people are "too busy" to eat breakfast (which is certainly a bad thing), lots of other people decide that they are "too busy" to eat a healthy breakfast (which is almost as bad!). Even though you are likely busy most of the time, you should not start your day eating something like a doughnut or a pastry; because you have not eaten in a while, your body will store the fat from these foods, and furthermore, these foods provide you with nothing but empty calories! Oats are a great food to start your day with, as oats give you energy and are also good for your body; oatmeal is, of course, a great way to get oats at the start of the day, but if you do not like oatmeal, try eating an oat bar or a bowl of cereal. Eating yogurt is another great way to start your day; rather than purchasing sugar-filled yogurt that is really nothing more than a dessert, however, take the time to shop for some organic yogurt that is actually healthy, as this will be a great way for you to start the morning! Of course, another wonderful choice for breakfast is fruit - and like most of these other foods, fruit is easy to bring with you on the road - which means you can eat it even if you are "too busy" to make yourself breakfast! Once you start getting some of these foods into your body at the start of every morning, you will feel a big difference in your energy throughout the day, and your body will start to be much healthier than it had been before!
