Breakfast has long been touted as the most important meal of the day. Research shows that individuals who eat breakfast have higher cognitive performance, improved memory, longer attention spans, and more successful weight control.
Most people who skip breakfast claim they do not have enough time in the mornings to prepare a nutritious meal. Let’s change that! Consider taking a few minutes the night before to prepare something simple for a grab-and-go meal in the morning. Or how about putting that microwave to work? Use it to whip up delicious and speedy single servings of everything from eggs to muffins.
