Not a Power Breakfast

The more I see what others eat for breakfast, the easier it becomes to understand why so many people in this country are plagued with health problems.

How can someone expect to live a healthy life if they start every day in a very unhealthy way?

The importance of each and every meal cannot be denied, but breakfast above them all holds a bit more significance. What you eat for breakfast can and will set the tone for the rest of your day. It can be the difference between your blood sugar fluctuating, rising and falling like the stock market, and holding steady throughout the day. It can be the difference between having energy throughout the day and crashing before noon. It can be the difference between actually staying full for the next 3 or 4hrs and unconsciously snacking through the day like a bear preparing for hibernation. It can be the difference between staying healthy and, well not.

Since none of this should be front page news for anyone, tell me why then breakfast usually gets the least amount of intelligent forethought going into its preparation?

Tell me why then do I see the same co-worker of mine eat two thick slices of "multigrain" bread or bagel topped with enough butter to clog the healthiest arteries and heaping amounts of jelly (loaded with sugar by the way) each and every morning?

What to eat for breakfast... it's not rocket science, just keep it healthy. Organic Whole Foods are your best bet; Free-grazed Eggs, Nuts, Whole Grains, Fruit, Vegetables, and Wild Caught Fish are all good choices.
