Breakfast. When done right, it fires up your engines and fuels both body and brain until lunchtime. So why do you often find yourself ravenous by mid-morning? It’s not due to all that mental energy you’re burning but it’s got everything to do with the sugar and carbs lurking in your breakfast bowl.

I talked to many clients this week who are anxious about their healthy eating going out the window over the Thanksgiving holiday. This comes up especially if you’re travelling to visit family where you may have less control over what you’re eating.
We say it time and time again: Breakfast is the most important meal of the day! And this can be especially true during the holidays. A healthy and nourishing breakfast keeps you satisfied and energized, allowing you to really enjoy your Thanksgiving, which usually includes cooking a delicious meal, catching up with family, and resisting those tempting treats!

Breakfast. Whether it’s your favorite meal of the day or the one you care about the least, breakfast is your chance to front-load your system with the vitamins and nutrients you need to power through the day. Do it wrong, however, and you’ll be a nutritionally compromised zombie – sleepy, hungry, moody and ill-equipped to tackle the day.
There is a big reason why breakfast has long been referred to as the most important meal of the day—the food you eat in the morning will influence your energy levels, cravings, emotions, and clarity throughout your day and can even affect how you sleep that night!
Incorporating nutrient-dense foods for breakfast, such as healthy fats, good-quality proteins, and colorful vegetables, will provide a sense of balance and satiation, encouraging you to continue making healthy choices all day.
