Eat your breakfast

Breakfast, the most important meal of the day! But what if it looks like this? Yeah, I think it looks delicious too.

Recently, I was sitting with two other women when we were all asked what each of us had for breakfast. Of the three of us, I was the thinnest in the group. Don't get me wrong, I'm not bragging. However, our answers to the question of what we had for breakfast was a telling indicator of what our body shapes were. First you have to know why breakfast is the most important meal of the day...Not only does eating breakfast make us happy (rather, eating helps improve our mood), it also jump starts our metabolism for the day and 'breaks the fast' so we don't hold onto and store our calories needlessly!

OK, so me first. My answer was: non-fat Greek yogurt, 1 cup of strawberries, and a chocolate chip cookie (with a giggle inserted for effect, of course)

The second woman, had a bagel with peanut butter. The third (and largest) had skipped breakfast that day. Ok, not scientific, but still telling. Moral of the story? Don't skip breakfast. Don't have a taco waffle either. Set a healthy tone for your day and eat a healthy breakfast.
