Breakfast -- in my opinion -- is the most important meal of the day. For me, it sets the tone for how my eating will look that day. A breakfast can either make or break how you feel during the day, and can be totally shamed due to just a couple of things.
There are few things I do not sacrifice, no matter how busy I get: working out at least 3-5 days a week, spending quality time with my loved ones, sleeping at least 7 hours a night, and BREAKFAST DAILY.
A bagel and cream cheese: not a breakfast. Sugary cereal: not a breakfast. Pancakes with maple syrup and no fruit or protein: not a breakfast. Sorry, those are desserts in my book. (even though they are delicious!)
I'm not saying a breakfast can't have those items, but I am saying that a breakfast should be balanced with healthy fats, protein, carbs, and vitamins. It should contain fruits or veggies. It should be colorful.
It should not be rushed or skipped.
I realize not everyone has the time or energy for a healthy breakfast, but there are things you can do to make it easier to squeeze in:
1. Prep the night before (hellooooo delicious overnight oats!)
2. Multitask cooking (you have to brush your hair in the morning, why not d othat while smoe eggs are cooking?)
3. Grab, go, and eat at the office or on your commute (I don't love this, but if there's really no time for breakfast, who says you have to eat it at home?)
A delicious, healthy breakfast takes less than 5 minutes to cook in some cases, and I bet you can find 5 minutes in your morning.
