Breakfast Lovers Rejoice: Why a Healthy Breakfast Matters

It’s been said time and time again that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but as it turns out, there is a lot of truth to the old adage. It’s not just a pithy statement, those words are words to live by. Don’t just take them at face value, consider these facts from your favorite source for breakfast and breakfast catering in Philadelphia.

Interestingly enough, breakfast really may be the most important meal of the day. One of the most important benefits of breakfast is that it provides your body with the energy that you need to start your day. Between the time when you first wake up and you actually start your day, your metabolism is shifting and your body needs a surge in energy. A healthy breakfast will provide your body with the energy you need to get up and get going.

It’s understandable that a sudden spike in energy requirements makes a meal like breakfast important, but there is a bigger picture than simple energy intake. A well-balanced breakfast can also provide your body with many of the nutrients it needs that are necessary for long term health. Starting off with a breakfast that is rich in nutrients like iron, calcium, fiber, vitamins and even protein can set your health up for long term success.

The news keeps getting better and better, though. Not only does a healthy breakfast help kickstart your morning and make you feel awake by providing you with energy, but it can also impact your cognitive performance and diminish the effects of sleep inertia. If that sounds important, it is. Think about what happens after you wake up – more than half of the time, you’re probably going to work or school, and if you thought you needed your brain for that, you’d be right.

A balanced breakfast can help regulate and restore glucose levels in your blood, which is one of the most critical nutrients to cognitive performance. A healthy breakfast can improve your concentration, memory, and retrieval, and even critical thinking levels.

If that wasn’t enough, then keep in mind that a satisfied stomach can help uplift your mood and provide you with a general feeling of wellness, whereas going hungry can make you feel irritable, short-tempered, and unwell.

There’s also even some evidence that regularly taking breakfast can help with weight control and even weight loss. At the same time that it provides energy and restores glucose to the blood, a meal in the morning will help to get your metabolism going to help you burn off those calories efficiently and these effects will carry throughout the rest of the day.

The same evidence suggests that skipping breakfast can disrupt your body’s natural rhythm of intake and expenditure. By skipping breakfast you may actually be harming your body’s ability to balance the calories it takes in with the calories it should be burning.
