Breakfast is our most important meal of the day and we both can’t function without it! We see breakfast as a must when it comes to setting ourselves up to have a productive day. In saying this we are no experts when it comes to diets and we truly believe in listening to your body and doing what’s right for you. If you are on the fence about whether or not to start having breakfast each morning, continue reading for our reasons behind why we believe it’s so important!
Why are we pro breakfast?
We both haven’t always been lovers of breakfast and have both gone through phases of skipping breakfast (which is totally fine if this works for you!) However, over the years we have discovered that breakfast fuels our minds and bodies for the day ahead. Over time though we both started to realise it wasn’t that we didn’t enjoy having breakfast, but there was the idea that there wasn’t enough time to sit down and have breakfast to start with. Once we started making time for this within our morning routine we were able to enjoy eating it and also found our productivity increase.
I want to start having breakfast, what do you suggest?
Starting with small steps and not making a drastic change all at once is our number one recommendation for creating any new habit. Planning ahead will also help with adding variety and making sure that you don’t get bored as we want you to be excited for what you have on your menu! We both use our meal planner for the week to plan out our options. An extra tip is to make sure to also include foods that you like to eat.
