Start each day with a good breakfast. Study after study confirms that we eat less over the course of the day if we start with a good breakfast.
A balanced approach is generally best – meaning some lean protein (low or fat free dairy or eggs), with a reasonable portion of high fiber, complex carbohydrate (whole grain toast or cereal), and a serving of fruit or vegetable. And DRINK A GLASS of WATER with breakfast, even if you have coffee or tea. Your body is in a state of dehydration from the night of sleep.
Here’s some simple deliciously healthy breakfast recipe you can make tonight for a Better Breakfast tomorrow
