Breakfast is the most important meal of the day – it means to break your fast – the fasting period between your last meal the night before and your first meal of the day after waking. So it makes good sense to start the day with nutritious foods that will get you through the morning into lunch.

The best way to kick-start your metabolism in the morning is to eat a healthy breakfast. Studies show that nothing, including exercise, gets our metabolism going as fast as eating a healthy breakfast! Breakfast not only increases your metabolism, but it boosts your energy and increases your attention span!

If you feel like you can’t ‘stomach’ food first thing in the morning, or that you don’t have time to eat or that you don’t feel hungry, try something as simple as a piece of fruit and a tub of yoghurt. This will give you the nutritious boost that you need, and help in preventing the mid morning munchies, where you might snack on unhealthy choices!
