In Search of a Better Breakfast

    What is a better breakfast? Healthier? Easier? Tastier? More adult? More fun for kids? All of the above.

    Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a pauper.

    Eat breakfast every day for better health.

    The International Journal of Gastronomy and Food Science says:

    the adage breakfast is the most important meal of the day wasn’t taken seriously by science for decades.

    (We discuss why here. It’ll knock your socks off.)

    But after a 2013 study discovered men who skipped breakfast had a 27% higher risk of coronary heart disease, they started taking a closer look and breakfast reigns supreme once again.

    Dr. David Agus, doctor to the stars, one of the world’s leading cancer researchers and author of A Short Guide to a Long Life tells us the reasons why breakfast is so important – in only one minute.

    It is recommended that we consume 15-25% of our energy intake in the morning.










    A better breakfast begins with taking time to eat breakfast.

    The Journal of the American Dietetic Association says breakfast is actually a non-meal for 20 percent of children and 32 percent of adolescents. (And they’re not the only ones who are breakfast skippers.) It’s not a surprise that they encourage growing kids and developing teens to try and eat something nutritious when they begin their day.

    When our kids were in high school, our daughter got up early to beautify herself, but the 2 boys showered the night before so they could stay in bed as long as possible. “Got no time for dat,” was their breakfast motto.

    I always had fruit available, and they would grab a bottle of chocolate Ensure as they ran out the door to catch the bus. I felt like I was still being a “good mom” because Ensure contains 1/3 of their daily requirement of nutrients.
