Today’s post was difficult to write. Not because it is a taboo subject or a controversial topic. It is just one of those things I hate talking about because it is one of my worst bad habits. What am I discussing? The importance of eating breakfast.
I admit it, I rarely eat breakfast. I would rather spend an extra 15 minutes in bed than waste time eating breakfast. It is not a great habit, and I know it is one that I need to change. After all, coffee isn’t considered breakfast, right?
So why is eating breakfast so important? There are several reasons:
- It gives you energy and nutrients that will enhance concentration and productivity.
- It aids in weight control. You would think that skipping a meal would be a benefit. So not true!
- The skipping of meals actually leads to overeating. Yikes, they are certainly right about that. I am so guilty of that.
- It keeps your blood sugar at a steady level, which decreases the risk of Type 2 diabetes. I really need to be aware of that because a lot of my family members already have diabetes. Plus, I had gestational diabetes that required insulin.
- It gets your body in motion. And we all remember that a body in motion tends to stay in motion. Which burns calories and helps with weight loss.
These are just a few of the benefits of breakfast, and helps to remind people about the importance of eating breakfast!
So how do you make eating breakfast a reality? By skipping the extra 15 minutes of sleep and have a healthy breakfast. I have a few recipes to share with you that will help motivate you to get up and start your day eating a healthy breakfast.
