Breakfast Week

We thought it would be fun if we did a breakfast week, that is seven days of breakfast food recipes. Recipes we have made up ourselves or have tested and tried, and continue to make ourselves because we think they are great=}

Breakfast is the first meal of the day and it is easy to get into a rut with this meal and just eat the same things. For people breakfast often includes a carbohydrate such as cereal, fruit and/or vegetable, protein, sometimes a dairy product, and a drink. Nutritional experts have referred to breakfast as the most important meal of the day.

Many people believe that they will lose weight if they skip meals, but that just isn’t true; the body expects to be refueled a few times each day, starting with breakfast. This is based on studies of the large numbers of people who skip breakfast, to adverse effect on their concentration, metabolism and weight.  Actually, eating breakfast is good for weight loss. In fact, studies show that people who eat breakfast are more likely to maintain a healthy weight.  Studies also show that children who eat breakfast do better in school. We also think adults will feel better and perform better at work as well, if they don’t skip breakfast. It is not a good idea to skip breakfast.

Eating a good breakfast sets the tone for the rest of the day.  Notice how much better you feel through the morning and the rest of the day when you don’t skip breakfast. So, let’s all not skip breakfast this week and enjoy the recipes featured the next seven days.
