Why Do I Need to Eat a Healthy Breakfast? When you wake up, your body has burned all the energy from the food you ate the day before. Therefore, you are running on empty as soon as you wake up, and you need to give your body the fuel it needs to make it through the day. Eating a healthy breakfast can help you to get your body moving and energy flowing so that you can be productive and conquer the day!

Reasons Breakfast Is Important

  • Encourages healthier eating
  • Balances blood sugar levels
  • Kickstarts your metabolism
  • Boosts energy levels
  • Promotes heart health
  • Stimulates the brain

What If I Forget to Eat Breakfast?

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. If you are guilty of skipping breakfast most mornings, try to set yourself up for success by making breakfast the night before for you to be able to just grab and go. Or if you are not a huge breakfast eater, consider making a healthy smoothie or protein shake instead—just so you can be sure to start your day off right!
