According to many studies, for children and adolescents, breakfast is a MUST. It increases focus, cognitive abilities, readiness to learn, and alertness throughout the day. (ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15883552)
In adults, there is less evidence of the importance of breakfast, but missing breakfast has been shown to increase insulin resistance (this causes type 2 diabetes) and can also lead to weight gain over time (ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15698226). Breakfast consumption is associated with lower BMI, better blood sugar control, and better suppression of hunger throughout the day.
Based on these facts, it is important for you to grab breakfast even if it is on-the-go or a full meal. To make this easier, keep some healthy breakfast bars or food to warm up while your coffee is brewing. The sausages pictured above are healthy and are cooked easily in the microwave for a filling and delicious breakfast on-the-move. Another way to ensure you eat breakfast is to pre-cut fruit and place in easy-to-grab tupperware so that you can eat it fresh or blend into smoothies.
