Breakfast vs No Breakfast The Health Benefits

Post in collaboration with MOMA.

Do you eat breakfast? If you don’t, maybe you should think about it. I rarely start the day without having breakfast, a particular favourite of mine being yoghurt, granola and fruit. Other favourites are things like smoked salmon on rye bread, banana protein pancakes with Nutella, or a strawberry and banana smoothie. I find it really important as it helps to stabalise my blood sugar levels throughout the day and stops me from wanting to snack on biscuits later on.

It’s National Breakfast Week this week, so if you don’t currently make having breakfast part of your routine, now is a great time to start! Many people claim they are too strapped for time in the morning, but there’s no reason why you can’t make up a jar of morning oats the night before to keep in your fridge, so you just have to grab it. Or think about keeping a supply of breakfast type foods in your office, if you have a kitchen and try to have something when you arrive at work. It may not be perfect, but it’s better than skipping.

Here’s a useful infographic from MOMA, outlining the health benefits of eating breakfast.

    I love breakfast! It’s my favourite meal of the day! I usually have two massive bowls of cereal (a mixture of rice crispies, cornflakes and Frosties) and cup of tea. I do also like a yummy cooked breakfast now and then! I’m not a happy person without my breakfast!!! xxx
