A healthy lifestyle starts with making choices and learning new ways to eat! Eating healthy doesn’t have to be a drag, by adding new varieties and balancing your meals, eating healthy can be fun. Breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day; eating breakfast gets you started off on the right foot and can give you the energy you need for your daily activities.
                But why is breakfast that important? Most people choose to skip breakfast because they don’t have time or simply don’t want to make the effort in the morning. Studies find that those who eat breakfast are healthier than those who skip breakfast. Besides helping maintaining steady glucose levels during the day, it gives you energy, helps you not to overeat during the day, and in general “breakfast eaters tend to have better diets overall, consuming more fruit, vegetables, milk, and whole grains than non-breakfast eaters” (consumerreports). Eating breakfast gets you moving and helps your brain to get moving!
                So, what does a healthy breakfast consist of? Experts say that you should make sure that your breakfast includes good carbs, fiber, and protein. Foods like oatmeal, greek yogurt, grapefruit, eggs, almond butter, blueberries, strawberries, and so much more are all great foods to incorporate into a healthy breakfast (!
