Build a Better Breakfast

Do you eat breakfast? I don't actually. Eating breakfast makes me have a weird feeling in my tummy. However, breakfast is said to be the most important meal in a day. This article from BHG.com can show you how to have a good breakfast that includes all the nutrition that your body needs.

For a breakfast that will keep you energetic all morning long, try a mix of:

  1. Quality Proteins: The protein in foods such as eggs, nuts, and smoked salmon makes breakfast stick to the ribs longer.
  2. Healthful Fats: People who eat a breakfast that contains a small amount of fat, like that found in low-fat milk, usually eat less overall throughout the day.
  3. Complex Carbs: The fiber and nutrients from whole grains, fruits, and vegetables help you lower cholesterol and maintain a healthy weight.
