ON YOUR MARK, GET SET….
After a full night’s sleep your brain is in need of replenishment. Having breakfast refuels your brain by supplying the energy and proper nutrition it needs. Eating a healthy breakfast is like throwing some small twigs on a fire to get those mental flames rising again. If you toss a log on the embers you’re going to kill the fire. In the same way, a healthy breakfast (I recommend beginning with a cleansing fruit) will stoke your metabolism and prevent your from feeling famished later in the day, forcing you to toss a big old log on the fire when you pig out at lunch.
With a little advance planning you can have a healthy, whole-foods breakfast ready in minutes. That’s going to give you a better start to your day and help you to be more productive. It’s the foundation, the cornerstone, for the rest of your day.
