Confession: I know that it’s the most important meal of the day, but I am a chronic breakfast-skipper. Part of the problem is that it’s easy to get into a rut of your standard vegan breakfast foods when you’re crunched for time: oatmeal, toast, smoothies, etc. When things start feeling monotonous, it’s hard to make time for breakfast when you’ve got a busy schedule, isn’t it?
They don’t call breakfast “the most important meal of the day” for nothin’! A healthy breakfast powers you through your morning, jump-starts your metabolism, and puts you ahead on nutrients from protein and fiber to vitamin C. In kids, skipping breakfast can actually lead to behavior problems.
If you’re trying to lose weight, skipping breakfast might feel like an easy way to cut back on calories, but research shows that the impacts on your metabolism could negate those calorie savings. Skipping breakfast is actually linked to obesity!
