You know how mom used to always say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day? Well, guess what? She was right! Mom knows best when it comes to realizing that breakfast is the fuel that keeps us running throughout the day.
But if you're anything like me, you'd prefer to sleep a little later rather than get up in time to prepare a meal in the wee small hours. When you're not a morning person, it's hard to resist that snooze button, but it will pay off more than those 10 blissful moments of laziness. In time, you'll find that working in a good breakfast will give you much more energy to face the day than spending a few more moments under the covers ever could!
Some may not like the traditional breakfast foods. I hear you, but you can eat anything you want! For example, peanut butter on a slice of wheat bread, fat free milk, and a piece of fruit will do the trick. The important part about breakfast is eating something and eating healthily, not forcing myself to eat eggs or cereal. If I don't fancy the usual fare, that's no reason to forgo a.m. eating altogether.
So after just a couple of weeks eating healthy breakfast I noticed how much better I feel through the morning and the rest of the day when I don't skip breakfast.
So in my house, aside from being "fun" to eat breakfast for dinner, it is usually a rather economical choice at least one night a month.
Hope I didn’t leave you all with an athirst for breakfast meals ! I think my work is done here! Yummmm!
Here’s what I had for breakfast:
2 eggs over medium
2 Turkey sausage links
2 Rice cakes with sugar free grapes preserves
A handful of fresh blueberries
Small glass of almond and coconut milk. I mixed the two for flavoring.
