At a recent workshop I was asked,”So, what do you eat for breakfast?”
Why? Because sometimes my breakfast choices are things like soup. Not the sort of thing you want to just blurt out in public. And becasue we all need to discover what is the best breakfast for us.
We’ve all heard it’s the most important meal of the day – but then what do we think our choices are? Yogurt ? (Watch this it’s hilarious — I actually worked on one of those commercials back in the day – talk about karma. ) Or Toast, eggs, oatmeal, cold cereal, just coffee, a lara bar, or simply nothing.
Why is breakfast so important?
I’ll give you a few simple reasons in bullet point:
- Breakfast literally breaks the fast. While we are sleeping, our body is detoxifying and fasting. When we wake, our blood sugar is low. Morning is an important time to eat something and balance your blood sugar out.
- Our breakfast sets the tone for our day. Our choices effect our energy, mood and focus.
- Metabolism. Eating a breakfast that works for you energetically will support your metabolism.
So, what’s the best thing for breakfast?
