Breakfast absolutely is the most powerful meal of the day.
If you eat the right one that is!
Yet for many busy people skipping breakfast is still sometimes a daily occurrence. Breakfast falls into the craziest time of the day when you have the least amount of time and you are rushing to get to work on time. The last thing you want to do is prepare and then eat breakfast, time is precious.
You just have no time for breakfast!
I get it, but I honestly believe that investing the time (that's right it is an investment of time) to actually sit and eat a breakfast has the power to not only automate your metabolism and energy for the day, but is likely to be the biggest productivity hack you can acquire in less than 10 minutes flat!!!
However, let me be clear, not all breakfasts are created the same and it is this macronutrient profile that holds the key to creating a breakfast that either kickstarts your metabolism, energy levels and cognition or actually reduces your metabolism, causes your body to store fat and make you feel so sluggish all you can think of is your bed.
A nutritious breakfast, especially if you are watching your waistline should be protein rich with some good omega 3 fats. I absolutely suggest having carbs to help push you through the day, but use them as a side order rather than the main focus of the meal. This is for several reasons, one being that excess carbs can make you tired and groggy, but also not depriving yourself of them is essential too so you don't feel deprived and start craving carbs after breakfast.
Sadly most premade breakfast cereals and pastries are nutritionally empty and are
- Sugar loaded
- Carb heavy
- Overly processed
Whilst they may fill you up, at least for a while, that is where the benefits stop and their less attractive benefits being, such as
This makes it difficult to chose a breakfast that can feed your body properly. You want it to be convenient and ready to go but in all honesty this is where I believe we are let down a lot in the cereal department.
