Breakfast is a great way to jump start your metabolism, which helps you burn calories through out your day. There are many other health benefits to eating breakfast. Some include:

  • Decreased appetite
  • Prevent type 2 diabetes
  • Increased weight loss
  • Improved memory

Obviously, what you eat plays a role in your benefit outcome. When making your breakfast selection, try to eat whole foods that are full of nutrients. Examples include:

  • Eggs
  • Yogurt
  • Oatmeal
  • Whole fruit
  • Whole wheat toast

If time is a factor in your avoidance, try easy grab-and-go foods, for convenience  This recipe is one of my families favorites. Quick, nutritious and cheap, give them a try!
