Breakfast in America

English Breakfast

I’m sure it’s not breaking news to anyone that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. The photo I’ve inserted isn’t actually a breakfast from America, but a breakfast I had in London a few years back. While that breakfast is quite a bit bigger than I am used to, it does follow one of Michael Pollan’s Food Rules “Breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, dinner like a pauper.”

What do you usually eat for breakfast each day? Time and again I hear “I’m just not a breakfast person” when I take individuals through consultations. It is so important to have breakfast so you can kick start your metabolism for the day. Even though breakfast should be your biggest meal of the day, it doesn’t have to be anything too fancy, especially if you’re appetite isn’t big in the morning.

Here are some quick and easy breakfast combinations:

Peanut butter and a banana

Yogurt with fresh berries and granola

Cheese, crackers, and an orange

Whole wheat toast and honey with a pear

Don’t have time to eat breakfast? Sure you do! Just plan ahead. If you need to eat at the office, keep your breakfast there so you don’t have the excuse of not having time to eat at home or prepare something for work.
