Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. If you start off with a fresh, wholesome meal, then you’re likely to continue with that mentality. On the other hand, if you have a not-so-healthy breakfast, your day feels derailed from the start.
You can have a fun variety of breakfast foods to start your day off right.I personally love pancakes, muffins, scrambles, and smoothies. The important thing to do here is to use wholesome ingredients, and you’re already headed in the right direction.
Your breakfast should have the right ingredients in it to keep you energized. Protein is especially key in the a.m. It makes you feel more satiated than carbs, so you feel fuller with less food. Plus, it’s important to get protein in after your workout to aid in muscle recovery.
