Why You Should Always Eat Breakfast
Breakfast is considered to be our most important meal of the day because most of our day’s energy is obtained from it, especially if it is rich in protein and fibre. It also provides you with vitamins and minerals. It should keep away the hunger pangs until lunch time; and as a result, keep you from unhealthy snacking and overeating at lunch. It will start up your metabolism and keep you at a healthy weight. You will also be able to better focus and concentrate and be less likely to become cranky and get headaches. Studies have shown that students who do not eat breakfast—especially a healthy one—do poorly in school. As a result, many schools offer free healthy breakfasts. There are actually a couple of want ads of large Fortune 500 companies who offer free nutritious breakfasts every morning (as well as gyms and showers). They know that their employees will be much more creative and productive as a result. They will also be healthier and save the company money by taking fewer sick days.
Many people who skip breakfast say that they do not have time in the morning to make and to eat it. A bran muffin, an orange, and a glass of milk are healthy and much better than nothing. Limit your intake of juice—unless you make it yourself—as most of it is heavily laden with sugar with the result that while you may receive a quick energy boost, you will also likely crash after a couple of hours. Some people put left-overs such as potatoes, beans, and ham pieces in a pan and top it with scrambled egg. It heats while you dress! So eat breakfast!
