How many times have you heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day? While many people have differing views on whether it is actually the most important meal of the day, we at Meritage Medical Network think it’s pretty great! Why? Because…
- The Japan Public Health Center conducted a study of 82,000 people, and the resulting report (recently published in the American Heart Association journal Stroke) suggests that eating breakfast reduces the chance of having a stroke.
- Studies show that eating a breakfast high in protein reduces cravings for sweets throughout the day.
Of course, there are endless reasons why breakfast is an amazing meal! But how do you decide what to make for breakfast? Bacon and eggs are delicious to many, but they can have detrimental effects on your body. How about opting for some of these nutritious & delicious meals. A smoothie, protein shake or oatmeal will surely satisfy any cravings you may have, and keep you full until lunch time!
Still not sure what to eat? Starting a healthy lifestyle can be difficult at first. That’s why we offer Healthy Nutrition Wellness Classes.
