As the old saying goes ‘Breakfast is the most important meal of the day,’ it kick starts your metabolism breaking it from its overnight fast, improves energy levels, memory and concentration and provides many beneficial nutrients.
If breakfast was not part of your usual daily routine why not create a new morning routine:
• Set your alarm 15mins earlier to fit in eating breakfast at home.
• Take a Breakfast on the Go with you to eat on the way.
• If you’re able to take breakfast into work with you and enjoy it when you get there.
