Eat Your Breakfast!

breakfastheaderNo, Seriously. Eat Breakfast.

How important is breakfast?

Very! Without breakfast, your body could be without fuel for up to 16 hours from dinner to the next day’s lunch. Your body needs a consistent energy intake to maintain proper function and breakfast is also a great way to kick start your day.

Make your breakfast full of protein. This will help keep you full until lunchtime and prevent over eating due to excessive hunger.

Most of us are busy bees and give the excuse of “I don’t have time to eat breakfast.” Even if a big breakfast isn’t possible just a quick bite can be beneficial. If you’re in need of some ideas for a quick, on the go breakfast, check out some ideas below, lots of the ideas can be found on campus.
