Summer is officially over and work/school schedules are back in full force. This is when breakfast gets neglected the most, as everyone says breakfast is the most important meal of the day. This is actually really true, eating something in the morning kickstart your digestive and endocrine systems. If we don’t eat within about 30 minutes of waking our body starts to release stress hormones and this can put our body in a state of stress before we even get started. This can be counteracted if you are working out in the morning or doing anything that releases a lot of endorphins because that is a happy hormone. Regardless of your morning routine breakfast should be consumed so I am here to share some healthy breakfast ideas with you that will keep you satisfied and full until lunch time.
