B is for Breakfast

 B is for Breakfast.  The very most important meal of they day they say.


Do you eat Breakfast?  Why is it necessary?

I absolutely do and I agree, it is very essential to your day.  When you awake in the morning, your body is dehydrated from often a 8 hour or longer fasting.  The very first thing you should be doing is rehydrate.  No, not with a hot cup of coffee, but a nice tall glass of water.

Next, don’t just grab a donut and go – that sugar  will just temporarily get you to where you are going then… crash… blood sugar drops and back you are to hungry and tired.

Each day should be started with a healthy amount of fiber and protein to provide you with slow burning energy to get you through to lunch time when you can refuel.

Yes… You should think of it as fuel.  So that means after fasting you should load yourself up.  A peice of wheat toast is great – but not enough.  Try a bowl of oatmeal with flax and fruit, a side of toast and maybe some yogurt.

How about a smoothie? Packed with all sorts of vitamins and minerals right.  Nope, not enough.  There just isn’t enough fiber there to last you the whole morning.  If you go with a smoothie, add a handful of almonds on the side to help tide you over.
