Are You Eating Your Most Important Meal?

As we know, “breakfast is the most important meal of the day,” I think we’ve learned that somewhere at a young age.  If it’s the most important meal, why is it that most of us rarely eat it? Not only does eating breakfast keep you from falling into the land of starvation, it also boosts your metabolism. When you skip your morning meal your insulin levels start to rise, and when your insulin levels increase, it prevents your body’s ability to burn fat. Enjoying breakfast allows you to burn fat and keeping the resolution you made for the New Year. I don’t expect you to create a meal like a cook at IHOP® every morning, but here are three simple meals you can enjoy when your time is limited.

If you don’t have time to make this meal for breakfast, then you are out of luck. Mix two scoops of your favorite protein powder, ice cubes, Milk (soy,almond etc) into a shaker bottle and drink it down.
