We’ve heard the phrase that “breakfast is the most important meal of the day,” but do you believe it? I was a perpetual breakfast skipper, and if I grabbed something for breakfast, it was always some sugar or carb loaded junk. A healthy breakfast should have the right balance of protein, complex carbs and healthy fats. It should also be high in fiber. Check out the research below showing how important breakfast is, not only because of the meal itself, but also because of how it affects our choices the rest of the day. Those that eat an unhealthy breakfast or skip breakfast, continue to make unhealthier decisions throughout the day. This is primarily linked to how your blood sugar is affected. A balanced breakfast also balances your blood sugar, which in turn satisfies your appetite for longer and curbs cravings for unhealthy items. You feel great, have energy and are set up to succeed with your food choices for the rest of the day.
I don’t know about you, but I find it difficult on a hectic morning to make a nice breakfast. This is why my USANA Nutrimeal is indispensable to me. It’s low-glycemic and packed with nutrition and all the right balance of good fats, complex carbs and protein. Most importantly, it tastes great and satisfies my appetite for hours, giving me energy to start my day right.
