Breakfast - The Most Important Meal of the Day

Without question, breakfast is the most important meal of the day.  Unfortunately, many people skip breakfast or eat foods with empty calories. 

So what’s so special about breakfast?

Well, foods eaten at breakfast serves as fuel for the rest of the day.  Think of your body as similar to a car, if you don’t gas up your car, how can you expect it to run and get you places?

I'm astonished by the number of people who do not eat breakfast or eat an unhealthy and unbalanced breakfast on a regular basis.  Skipping breakfast can cause headaches, irritability, lack of focus and concentration, blood sugar issues, brain fog and may be the reason for your cravings later on in the day.  So, one of the best things you can do for your body is eat a balanced breakfast. 

While this applies to all, it is that much more important for those who are physically active, exercise or a growing athlete who expends copious amounts of energy in your sports performance. 

If you skip breakfast, grab a late lunch, exercise and train on fumes, devour dinner and snack on junk food until bedtime - you are not only robbing your body of nutrients needed for good health, you are also robbing yourself of energy needed for your active lifestyle, not to mention the energy needed to perform during workouts, sport training and playing sessions.
