“Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a pauper!” – this simple quote illustrates pretty well how important your first meal of the day is. The word “breakfast” itself describes the “break” after “fasting” during the night. Upon waking up, your body needs energy and nutrients to work properly. This can also help you to be more concentrated doing your activities and avoid a mid-morning slump. Without breakfast you may start snacking in the morning or have an excessive lunch or dinner. Therefore, the breakfast allows you not only to start your morning full of energy but also to eat less during the day. Yet, also with your breakfast there is a difference of “doing the right things” and “doing things right”. This is why you should not only eat something in the morning but also take care that your breakfast is balanced and healthy. Basically, a healthy breakfast combines good carbohydrates with proteins which will boost your metabolism.
