The Benefits of Breakfast
ast week we talked about different ways to add flax seeds to your meals throughout the day, and this week we're going to talk about breakfast!
Do you usually eat breakfast? The first meal of the day is often one that people skip for whatever reason. If you do, you're missing out, not only on delicious breakfast foods, but the health benefits that come with them.
After sleeping all night, breakfast gets your day started. While your metabolism slows down during the fasting period at night, eating breakfast speeds it up again. You'll be more alert and have more energy throughout the day if you eat breakfast, especially foods that are high in fiber, like flax products. You're also less likely to eat too much at lunch because you won't be as hungry in the middle of a day. Not only are you more likely to lose weight if you eat breakfast, you'll be more healthy overall. For example, people who eat breakfast have better blood sugar levels.
Of course, it's important to eat the healthiest foods, rather than sugary cereals for breakfast. That's why we recommend adding flax seeds to your morning meal for an extra boost of nutrition to get you through the day and keep you healthy!
