We all know how it goes, in the morning you get up, pop the kettle on, and then the mayhem begins!
You have to wake the kids up, and then you are all fighting for the bathroom, as well as trying to get your children dressed and fed, sort out their lunches, and take them to school. And all this before 9 o‘clock! Before you know it you have missed the most important meal of the day – your breakfast!
Did you know that in having your breakfast within two hours of getting up, you are fuelling your body and brain and kick-starting your metabolism. Without breakfast you are running on empty, your energy levels will be lower as you have not replenished your blood glucose levels which can also affect your mental clarity, your mood and your stress levels.
Research shows that those people who start the day with breakfast are less likely to be overweight than those who skip it. Breakfast can also protect against heart disease and may lower your risk of Type 2 diabetes.
It`s also an excellent opportunity to establish a great healthy eating regime with your family that will help set them up for a great day, as children who eat breakfast do better in school, and have better concentration and more energy and are in better health overall.
So make sure you find a little time for yourself and start your morning off with a good breakfast so that you are fully fuelled for the day ahead. You have plenty of choices while on Slim & Save - eggs, pancakes, chocolate brownie, porridge's either plain, chocolate, vanilla custard or banoffee and don't forget you can always have a shake to get you going of a morning. There are no excuses with so much choice, so start your day the Slim & Save way!
