Come on....break the fast

Eating breakfast every day can help improve concentration, reduce hunger and maintain a healthy weight. Look for fast and easy choices such as whole grain breads and muffins, cereal with milk, fruit and fruit juice, yogurt and yogurt shakes, cheese, and eggs, or be creative with last night's leftovers.

Breakfast is proven to be the most important meal of the day. Breakfast is so important because at night when we are sleeping our body goes into a hibernation state. Everything that we have eaten gets stored away; when we wake up we need to let our body know that the fast can be broken. That is why we call it breakfast. Our body needs fuel to get us through the day. When we don't eat breakfast our body slows down and can't function properly.Breakfast gets our metabolism going and therefore has been proven to help with weight management!

So sit down and enjoy a complete breakfast this morning a complete breakfast may include:

2 Whole grain toast
Peanut butter
Glass of milk


3/4 cup of oatmeal
1 slice whole grain bread
Peanut butter
1/2 OJ

Studies show that people who eat breakfast are less likely to over eat at night! Plus everything you put in your month in the morning is going to be burnt off as energy throughout the day!
