Skipping breakfast is common in today's fast-paced, diet-trendy lifestyle. However, it can lead to fatigue and eventual food binges because your body needs a morning meal, especially after not eating all night. Breakfast is appropriately called "the most important meal of the day" because it not only gives you the fuel to get you through your day, but a morning meal also helps keep your mind focused and alert. So make time for breakfast.
Sarah Farrell, a 19-year-old dancer, knows how hectic life can be but makes a healthy breakfast a top priority. She says, "I like to have wheat pancakes with banana or poached eggs, I get all the nutrients of the egg without the grease and butter of frying it."
Farrell's wheat pancakes and eggs give her an adequate amount of calories, protein and fibre, which keep her full and energized for her morning ahead. Keeping her breakfast low in fat is a healthy strategy, as well.
If you don't have ample time for a substantial breakfast, you can get by with a breakfast bar. However, read the labels and opt for the breakfast bars that are lower in sugar and high in protein and fibre.
