Breakfast is widely accepted as the most important meal of the day and yet it is funny that when you ask someone if they have their breakfast before leaving for work, the answer is almost always a ‘No!'. Missing the most important meal forces your body to use up its reserves which increases hunger and you end up eating more during the next meal. Doing this on a regular basis leaves your body with no resistance and your immune system takes a serious hit. Breakfast is the fuel that charges you up and keeps you going for the rest of the day. After the night long hibernation mode that the body stays in, your morning meal is like a launch button that supplies energy to your system and keeps you pepped up for the day ahead. Take out five minutes every morning to prepare a healthy breakfast and feel the difference yourself.
