As we all know, breakfast is indeed the most important meal of the day. The reason why you’ve been hearing this sentence all your life is because it’s true. When you wake up, your blood sugar level is low (less than 100mg/dL after 8 hours without eating – the number of hours you should sleep).

However, it is not just about eating breakfast; it’s about eating the right things. If you want to have a healthy lifestyle, it should absolutely start in the morning.
