The Most Important Meal of the Day

Breakfast is associated with being labeled the most important meal of the day. Usually Breakfast is the first meal of the day and is the first source of energy for the body and mind.

My mother deserves that recognition for that. In the past my breakfast consisted of cereal, toast, yogurt, fruit and a glass of milk or juice followed by my multi-vitamin. Now that I am in college my habit has changed. I get up earlier to attend morning classes, but eating breakfast is not on my list. My typical morning routine is as followed: I wake up at 6am, let the dogs outside on a leash, feed my animals, pick out my outfit then get dressed. Lastly I pack my bags into the car and leave for college at 7am. As implied I do not find time to sit down and eat breakfast like I used too.

In my opinion the most important meal of the day is your first meal and does not always have to fit the stereotypical breakfast foods. Whatever I decide to eat in the morning has to be healthy: low is sodium, sugar and saturated fat. Also the meal must include a fruit and/or vegetable with it. However, my specific goal is to incorporate more traditional healthy breakfast foods. Eating these types of foods will increase my intake of fiber, whole grains, vitamins and minerals. In addition, eliminating nutritious styles of foods out of your diet simply because of taste preference is not a beneficial habit to have.
To accomplish this goal I need to make changes in my schedule either by waking up earlier, cut my time to get dressed and/or be willing to leave the house later.
In my journals I will document what I have eaten, how it impacted my schedule and lastly if my hunger is satisfied until noon when most people have lunch. This will be a positive change and is easily obtainable. Eating breakfast will improve my performance even more, reduce hunger that leads to eating unhealthy snacks, ensure I receive the proper amount of calories and is a stepping stone into incorporating more healthy fruits and vegetables and foods into my diet which is a future goal as
