A healthy breakfast is key to getting a great start in the morning. Some have described breakfast as the most important meal of the day. But is it really is that important? Well - look at the root of the word itself. Breakfast - it literally means to "break the fast". Your body has been at rest all night long. For most people that is between 6 and 8 hours of sleep - inactivity. However, even when your body is resting it requires energy for such basic things as blood circulation, breathing and fuel for your organs. It is also always busy repairing damaged cells and growing new ones. Calories expended to cover these basic functions are your "Basal Metabolic Rate" or BMR.
Since you are actually "burning fuel"
during those hours it seems to make sense that you would need to refuel
at some point. So don't think that things only get started when you get
out of bed and are
about to start the new day. Your metabolism has been working through the night and a good, healthy breakfast will give you the kickstart you need.
It certainly can help you feel invigorated and ready to go, no matter what the day holds. We think a great tasting vegetarian breakfast is just the ticket to feeling better all day long.
Here's another consideration. Many people believe they will lose weight if they skip breakfast. Nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, recent studies such as one done at Harvard University, indicate that people who miss breakfast are four times more likely than others to become obese. Other studies have shown that a diet high in fiber help to minimize the risk of heart disease, stroke and colon cancer. Eating a good breakfast consisting of a high fiber cereal and/or some fruit can certainly fit the bill.
