It is a common tendency of busy women to let eating breakfast become a low priority. If you are getting kids up and ready for school there is a long list of things that must be done in a limited amount of time. Remember, meeting all those needs makes it that much more important for you to get some nourishment at the start of the day. A good breakfast fuels you for the challenges of the day by setting your blood sugar at a steady level and sending energy to your organs, muscles, and brain. Wouldn't it be nice to remember where you put your keys - a good breakfast can help.
Boxed cereal is quick but most are too high in sugar and carbohydrates to sustain your energy leaving you tired and hungry long before lunch-time. The cereal crash is a common trap that sends many weight loss minded eaters back to square one, since they wind up overeating on whatever is within reach when their blood sugar plummets.
If any of this sounds familiar, or you simply want to change up your breakfast routine, keep reading this is for you!
