Eggs, Kale & Potato Skillet

Kick off Your Day with Breakfast Eating a nutritious breakfast has several health benefits! After a 10-12 hour fast our bodies need the fuel to maintain vital functions and our brains need the fuel to think clearly. Let’s look at these top reasons to break the fast and plan for a nourishing morning meal.
1. Improved Metabolism: Eating breakfast kickstarts your metabolism after a night of fasting. This helps your body burn calories more efficiently throughout the day.
2. Enhanced mental clarity: Breakfast provides the necessary nutrients, including carbohydrates and proteins, which are important for optimal brain function. Studies suggest that eating a balanced breakfast can improve memory, concentration, and problem-solving skills, contributing to better overall cognitive performance.
3. Stabilized Blood Sugar Levels: Breakfast helps regulate blood sugar levels by providing a source of glucose (blood sugar) for the brain. Stable blood sugar levels can prevent energy crashes, mood swings, and reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes over the long term.
4. Weight Management: Eating a nutritious breakfast can help control hunger and prevent overeating later in the day.Individuals who skip breakfast may be more likely to make unhealthy food choices or consume larger portions at subsequent meals, potentially leading to weight gain.
