Natural Balance Foods

Why is breakfast so important!


Good morning! Yeah, we know you’re tired and probably don’t feel like eating but it’s pretty important - After all, the phrase ‘breakfast is the most important meal of the day’ didn’t come from nowhere!

If you’re one of those people that prefers to snooze just that little bit longer and skip out on a morning meal, maybe the following points will help change your mind!

Don’t be so grumpy!

Any food that we eat is intrinsically linked to our mood, which also applies to the time in which they are consumed. Whilst a lot of us aren’t naturally morning people, you’re likely to be just a little bit happier in the earlier hours if you get a decent breakfast in you! This is because eating in the morning helps balance our blood sugars, raise energy levels and get us good and ready for the day!

Appease your appetite    

If you’re looking to count your calories, skipping out on breakfast isn’t the way to go. In fact, it just makes you more likely to snack in the hours leading up to lunchtime! Even though there are a bunch of healthy snacks out there (like our awesome Eat Nākd bars for instance!), it’s all too easy for people to reach for the ubiquitous office pastries or similar snacks. By eating breakfast you’re much less likely to last until lunchtime before you eat again!

Stay focused and energetic

Ok, it’s pretty obvious but bears repeating. We eat so that our bodies have energy, so when we don’t eat, we feel more tired. This principle applies to breakfast as much as it does other meals which is why if you miss out on your morning munch, you’re going to feel more tired and distracted. As soon as you eat in the morning, you’re firing up the furnace and kick-starting your body chemistry.

So there you go! Breakfast doesn’t have to be difficult or time-consuming. In fact, we have a whole bunch of awesome breakfast recipes for you to try, so give them a go and get your day started off the right way :).
