Most Common Breakfast in America
I don't know about you but I'm BIG on breakfast. That is to say, that if I miss eating in the morning, I not only run out energy very fast, my stomach ends up feeling nauseous. It's no wonder. Every Nutrition expert I've ever come across touts breakfast as the most important meal of the day. I always tell my kids this analogy: you can't drive anywhere if you don't put gas in the car. The body is the same way. You have to fuel up when the tank is empty after a whole night of going without food.
I have to say I'm surprised that so many people skip breakfast in this day and age of information all pointing to how bad that is for your body. According to an ABC poll about what Americans are eating for breakfast, busy lifestyle seems to be the leading factor in skipping that all-important meal. Those who do eat are predominantly eating cold cereal, followed by eggs, and then either bagels, muffins, toast, or pastry.
If a busy lifestyle is your excuse for skipping breakfast, then just do what I do and graze. Being on the radio early in the morning doesn't exactly lend itself to a sit-down meal so I eat a few things over a few hours time to get my breakfast in. I start out with a homemade fruit, Greek yogurt and spinach smoothie, then at work I'll have 2 pieces of Sprouted wheat cinnamon raisin toast, and maybe a hard boiled egg or some walnuts. That seems to work for me.
