Remember the saying, “Breakfast is the most important meal of the day?” It’s true. In fact, breakfast may help control Americans’ increasing problem with overweight and obesity. A number of studies show that people who successfully maintain a significant weight loss eat breakfast just about every day.
After fasting all night, breakfast can kick-start your energy level. If you choose healthy, slow-burning foods, like whole grains and fruits, you should be able to control your appetite until midday. Overeating throughout the day is also less likely. Studies show that people who skip breakfast tend to make up for the calories later in the day, often with unhealthy, high-fat and high-calorie convenience foods.
Skip the sugary junk and reach for something good! If you’ve never had chia seeds before give them a try! The crunchy texture it adds to the yogurt slightly reminds me of pop rocks, sans the sugar! Some of us even remember the catchy “chi, chi, chia” jingle! But have you heard of eating chia seeds? Chia seeds are quite remarkable. In fact, they are one of the most nutritious superfoods known! Chia is an edible seed that comes from a member of the mint family called Salvia hispanica, which grows in southern Mexico. It used to be a common crop centuries ago, but was nearly forgotton. Now, it is making a comeback and more readily available.
