Wake up…and EAT!

Good morning, everybody! Let’s rise and shine and start the day off right! πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ

How so? With BREAKFAST, of course!

So, you’re probably reading those first few words thinking to yourself, “Oh great here we go… Another lecture about how breakfast is the most important meal of the day… Yada yada yada…”

BUT IT’S THE TRUTH! Don’t believe ME? Check out http://www.todaysdietitian.com/newarchives/090111p44.shtml for a great, factual article on the benefits behind eating breakfast.
When you start your body off with the RIGHT TYPE of breakfast, you are adding fuel to your body’s “fire” to make your entire day more productive and efficient! You wouldn’t put water in your car’s gas tank would you? Well, your body needs a certain type of fuel, too… and the best time to introduce your body to its needed fuel is as soon as you wake up in the morning!

With today’s Internet-focused world, you can find an abundance of healthy breakfast ideas that you don’t even have to make that day. I usually rotate between a few of the same ones that I have grown accustomed to and actually CRAVE when I wake up in the morning.

My top three choices are:
1. Refrigerator Apple cinnamon oatmeal

2. A breakfast smoothie

3. Egg, sausage, and cheese muffins

The three of these are in no particular order to my favorite and I like to switch it up throughout the week. There are many other options, as you may have read in http://www.todaysdietitian.com/newarchives/090111p44.shtml, but I want you to understand that choosing a HEALTHY alternative to breakfast will really make a difference in your overall day! You will feel better, you will be more productive throughout the day, you won’t feel hungry as quickly, and some may think that this is the biggest benefit of all…. Your body will probably begin to LOOK better because you’re boosting your metabolism!

Just remember three easy words to the key of each days start…

BREAKFAST IS BEST!

In case you still aren’t sure of healthy ideas to eat for breakfast, here are other options for you to look through!
