Breakfast and Your Health
Eat breakfast first thing in the morning, as it stimulates the digestive system. This means your digestive system can continue to absorb food and excrete waste, as well as give you a boost of energy.
Breakfast really is the most important meal of the day. Missing breakfast negatively affects your body. It leads to fluctuations in glucose levels, which means you'll lack energy and rely more on snacks and caffeine to get you through the day. In the longer term, it could also lead to weight gain — when the body senses potential famine, it lays down food as fat, rather than using it for energy.
Choose breakfasts that are quick to make, easy to digest, and supply you with protein and carbohydrates. These could include plain yogurt mixed with berries and seeds, or fruit and a few nuts, along with a non-caffeinated hot drink.
