Eating breakfast also gives you the energy you need to start the day right. People who have not eaten breakfast have been shown to be more lethargic and have less energy in the morning. Having energy is important especially if you have work or if you deal with family matters at home. Eating breakfast likewise lets you make wiser decisions when it comes to food choices later on in the day. Since you’re not so hungry, you’re likely to skip that candy bar or that muffin. It’s also been shown that people who eat breakfast are more likely to choose nutritious foods over junk food throughout the day, which means that you’re probably going to be reaching for a cup of fruits rather than a bag of potato chips.
So if you want to increase your energy level in the mornings, if you want to eat more nutritious foods or if you want to lose weight, breakfast is an important component in achieving this. Make sure you choose the right kind of food for your first meal of the day. Some suggestions are:
Your breakfast could be taken with fruit juices which are high in dietary fiber and vitamin C (especially citrus fruit juices) or taken with milk which can give you the day’s supply of calcium. Better yet, have a healthy milkshake with your meal!
