Have you ever heard the phrase ‘breakfast is the most important meal of the day’? Well, it’s true!
Better Breakfast Day takes place on Monday, September 26 and to celebrate, we’re bringing you the low down on why you should never skip the first meal of the day!
Kick-start your metabolism
After being dormant overnight since your last meal, breakfast helps to kick start your body’s metabolism, ensuring you to burn calories throughout the day. If you skip breakfast, your body thinks it is supposed to conserve, rather than burn extra calories.
It balances blood sugars
Skipping your morning meal can throw off your body’s rhythm of fasting and eating, according to experts. Your body needs to make your muscles and brain work and after sleeping all night, your blood sugars, which help do this, are low and need replenishing with food in the morning.
Breakfast gives you energy
Eating breakfast helps to energise the body. Research has shown those that eat in the morning show an increase in physical activity over those that don’t.
It stimulates the brain
Balancing those glucose levels in the morning can help your ability to focus, reason and process information, therefore giving you the mental edge.
A well-balanced diet should always include a morning meal. So, if you’re in the area, don’t forget to book a table to enjoy breakfast or brunch with us as your body will thank you for it!
