The Most Important Meal of the Day

Did You Know…

Missing a morning meal is the worst thing you can do. It slows metabolism and depletes your body of the fuel it needs to function optimally. But what you eat matters as much as the fact that you eat something. Simple, unrefined carbohydrates signal the brain to release serotonin, a neurotransmitter that brings on calm when you most want to be full of energy. Also, your body digests simple carbs quickly, sending blood sugar soaring and then plummeting, resulting in an energy crash. Try to start each day with a breakfast that contains at least 5 grams of protein which activates the production of norepinephrine, a neurochemical that increases heart rate and alertness.

Quick Tip…

Have leftovers for breakfast! This will give you a high energy meal to start your day. Keep it healthy!
