With everything in life, we all seem to be too busy. Missing breakfast ends up being one of the most common mistake people make, which ends up being a great sacrifice since breakfast is the most important meal of the day.
A couple reasons why you should have breakfast:
* recharging, you have just fasted for 5-9 hours and need your nutrition to start your day and increase your energy level
* combat obesity, people who miss breakfast have a greater chance of becoming obese , you'll have a greater lunch or make decisions with desperation and go to the closest fast food restaurant just because you're starving
Here is the recipe for what I drink Mon-Friday in order to insure I have breakfast everyday.
1/2 cup of dry oats : 150 calories
1cup almond or coconut milk (unsweetened) : 30 calories
a little bit of cinnamon : 6 calories
1 whole banana : 105 calories
a couple of ice cubes : 0 calories
Put in blender , pour in a cup and you're ready to go
Total of 291 calories. I drink this at 7:45-8 am and I am satisfied and hungry again at 11am when I have my snack.
No excuses, Pam :)
