Your Best Days Really Do Start With Breakfast

 

There's so much we need to do in the morning before work: get up, brush our teeth, shower, get dressed, and perhaps even prepare our lunch for the day. Having to make breakfast means waking up even earlier, and adds another chore to the morning routine. However, making that decision might end up being the most important thing you'll do throughout the entire day.

Many people think they just need coffee to get them going in the morning, and that they can hold off on eating solid food until lunchtime comes around. But breakfast truly is the most important meal of the day. A nutritious breakfast improves reaction times as well as cognitive skills and critical thinking abilities.

Eating breakfast in the morning actually satiates a person and generally leads to less overall food consumption across the whole day. A consistent, daily balanced breakfast also goes a long way to helping maintain good cholesterol and blood sugar levels.

A coffee-only breakfast can actually lower a person's metabolism, which causes weight gain over time. Not only that, but since caffeine is a drug, while your coffee might pick you up and get rid of your initial grogginess, the "crash" after it wears off can leave you even more fatigued than you were when you woke up in the morning.

So what does constitute a good breakfast? A balanced breakfast is anything that is low in fat and has a mix of protein, fiber and carbs. Egg dishes, cereal and oatmeal are great ways to receive these nutrients. And there are many ready-to-go cereal bowls or quick, instant oatmeal packets that are available if you really need those extra few minutes of sleep and can't afford to take time to cook. Of course, fruits like bananas and grapefruit are also good choices.

There are many ways to speed up the breakfast process too. Throw your instant oatmeal in the microwave so it's prepared after you shower, or carry a container with some fruits or cereal that you can eat while you're on the train or bus. No matter how you choose to eat your breakfast, make sure to take a few minutes to enjoy the meal that many of us miss all too often.
