Breakfast REALLY is the most important meal of the day

01 Aug

Get up and go. Sometimes that is literally the hardest part of my day. Maybe that sounds like I lead a charmed life, but it ain’t so!

I wake up with a pit in my stomach and I just cannot start my day. Spend another hour in bed, not actually asleep but not willing to get up. It’s not a good start (or a pretty sight for that matter; no really it’s kind of a horror movie).

I’m not a huge coffee drinker, and caffeine kind of aggravates my already sensitive stomach.

The only thing that works for me? I get my full 7-8 hours AND I eat my breakfast first thing.

“But I’m not hungry first thing in the morning!”

I know…I wasn’t either, for a long time. I literally had to train myself by forcing food down when I first woke up and no later than 45 minutes after waking up. Try something easy on the stomach. I recommend gluten free oats, or even better, some awesome overnight oats! Delicious, filled with fiber, protein, and good bacteria to get your digestion booted up first thing.

You get on this routine and I PROMISE you will wake up hungry and your morning blahs will pass quicker than you ever thought possible. And if you get enough sleep you may start waking up without the use of an alarm and eliminate the blahs all together!

You will be surprised how this affects your whole life. You will have an easier time maintaining a healthy weight, your stress levels will drop, your skin will get that glow. Everyone will be all “What’s your secret, oh tell me plleaaasssse” and you’ll be all like “IT’S BREAKFAST! YOLO!!!!!” Then you’ll like, I dunno, smash through a wall like the Kool-Aid man or something.
