breakfast2I love breakfast! I’m also hungry when I wake up and I don’t have problems with eating in the morning. (eating is never an issue for me). The great thing about breakfast is that you can make delicious meals. When you prefer your breakfast in the evening it feels like getting a present in the morning. Still a lot of people don’t have breakfast or eat breakfast really late in the morning. Your breakfast is the most important meal of the day. This is why you should start everyday with a healthy breakfast.

Breakfast gives your energy
When you eat the right food for breakfast you can boost your body for the day. The best food to start your day with are slow carbohydrates and proteins. Slow carbohydrates you find in oats (!) and protein in eggs or yogurt. Mix this with fruit and superfoods as cocoa powder and hemp seeds and you have enough energy to face the new day!

No time for breakfast in the morning?
You don’t have time for breakfast in the morning? Make your breakfast in the evening and take it with you when you go to work. But the best thing to do is, waking up a bit earlier. I know, it sounds difficult but you will experience the benefit of it during the whole day.

Do you eat breakfast everyday?
