Breakfast, as we all know is the most important meal of the day. But very few of us actually pay attention to such details when we are rushing for college and work. So, if you think grabbing a Bagel on the way is doing a favour for your body, believe me you are so wrong. We are all extremely busy people with exhausting schedules, so you might as well wake up a little early and enjoy a healthy meal before you take on the day. Another trick about a whole and healthy breakfast is to just modify it slightly with delicious fruits and whole grains,while keeping in mind the time crunch. It helps in time management and gives you the required boost to walk through the day with zest. Therefore, the only two things you need to do early morning is eat breakfast and eat healthy breakfast. Trying to follow a diet in the morning, is the worst practice ever, since you body is depleted off 80% of the energy from the previous night. Therefore, if you don’t eat enough your body will start conserving energy and will not burn the additional calories, thereby reducing your metabolic rate. The perks of eating healthy is that it boosts your immune system and protects you from a host of viruses and infections, that might otherwise easily attack your body. Food is the ultimate shield against such infections. And since we all love eating, here is a list of things you should try out for breakfast from tomorrow.

The best way to load up on the energy is to follow a diet plan which is rich in anti-oxidants, Carbohydrate, Omega 3, fibre and Vitamin D. That way your body receives all the major nutrients along with sources from which to derive the energy.
