Skipping breakfast is a common part of today’s diet-trendy, fast-paced lifestyles. However, it can lead to fatigue and food binges because your body needs to have a morning meal, especially after not eating all night. Breakfast is appropriately referred to as “the most important meal of the day” because not only does it give you the fuel you need to get through your day, but a morning meal will also help to keep your mind focused and alert. Make time for breakfast.
19-year-old dancer, Sarah Farrell, knows how busy life can be, but always makes a healthy breakfast a top priority. She says, “I like to have wheat pancakes with poached eggs or banana. I get all the nutrients of the egg without the butter and grease of frying it.”
Farrell’s eggs and wheat pancakes give her an adequate amount of calories, fiber and protein, which ensures she keeps full and energized for the morning ahead. Having a low fat breakfast is a healthy strategy, as well.
If you really don’t have time for a substantial breakfast, you can get by with a breakfast bar. However, make sure you check the labels and opt for a variety that are lower in sugar and high in fiber and protein.
