What is a Balanced Breakfast? March- Week 1 Nutrition Tip
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It is the one meal you should never skip. People who skip breakfast have a higher tendency to overeat at lunch.. and then what happens? You get sleepy and the last half of the work day is a groggy struggle to be productive. Having a balanced breakfast will give you the proper energy, to get through the day. The ideal breakfast is balanced with carbohydrates, protein, and healthy sources of fat.
