We have all heard the old saying. Many just think it was a wives’ tale to get children into healthy eating habits. However, it truly is a very vital part of the human body’s function. Breakfast – literally meaning breaking the fast. The body does a lot of work overnight. Obviously, we are not eating while we are asleep (with a few exceptions!), but our bodies are doing most of the breaking down and digesting of the food we have eaten throughout the day. Eating in the morning provides the body with the refueling it needs throughout the day, including the brain. There have been many scientific studies that have proven the brain functions at a much higher rate if breakfast is eaten as opposed to skipped. Eating within two hours of waking restores vital glucose and carbohydrate levels needed for healthy brain function. This helps with improving memory and concentration levels which goes a long way in helping young students perform better in school, and their adult counterparts at their jobs! Besides the brain, eating in the morning is important for the rest of the body’s performance as well. Eating provides the nutrients your body needs, but is also very important for your body’s metabolism to operate at its highest level. This means, eating breakfast can actually help facilitate weight loss! So remember, breakfast is THE MOST IMPORTANT MEAL OF THE DAY! So why not #eatatovereasy and get your day started off right with an avocado toast, Wolf Pack or Loko Moko?
