Remember back in school when the report you had to turn in was due in two hours? How about when you were in the midst of an important exam? Or you’re at your job in the middle of calls or a presentation and suddenly, bam! Around 10:30 AM you hit the dreaded wall! All you want to do is look out the window because you are unable to focus on the task at hand.
Think back now… what did you eat for breakfast?
Don’t let me be the one to say, “I told you so,” so I’ll turn to all of our beautiful Mom’s who have said to us oh, so many times: Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Did you know that breakfast is the meal that’s designed to supply a third of the macro and micronutrients your body needs to run without a hitch? True!
What are the nutrient dense foods you are eating each morning to do all of these things for your wonderful body? A cup of coffee gulped on the go? Or are you a cup of sugary yogurt and a muffin eaten at your desk? Skipping breakfast all together?
Your body deserves so much better than that… and so do YOU!
What Breakfast is Right for You?
One of the best and most fun ways to find out which foods serve YOU most powerfully is something called the Breakfast Experiment. For one week, eat a different breakfast each day. Record in a notebook what you ate, how you felt immediately after the meal, and how you felt again two hours later.
- Day one: Scrambled eggs or Tofu scramble
- Day two: Bean soup or Bean salad
- Day three: Oatmeal
- Day four: Boxed breakfast cereal
- Day five: Muffin and coffee
- Day six: Fresh fruit
- Day seven: Fresh vegetables
Feel free to repeat the experiment for another seven days with different foods each morning. Which breakfasts made you feel energized? Which one’s didn’t? After the experiment, try adding in more of the foods that made you feel great!
