WHY IS BREAKFAST THE MOST IMPORTANT MEAL OF THE DAY?
Breakfast sets the tone for an adventurous day. Without breakfast, you may encounter that infamous growling stomach and bout of low energy right smack in the middle of your morning meetings or mid-hike up your favorite trail. To cage that hanger beast, it’s important to feed your body after a good night’s rest. But did you know a quarter of Americans skip breakfast? That’s almost as scary as bleached white flour. Here at Kodiak, we believe breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and here’s why.
Breakfast Hacks For A Better Morning
What you eat for breakfast is just as important as eating breakfast. A sugary donut may taste good, but it simply doesn’t get the job done in terms of sustaining nutrition for your adventures ahead. However, a breakfast high in whole grains, protein, and fiber bolsters the benefits we’ve mentioned above. Discover three breakfast hacks to help you fit a wholesome breakfast into your busy schedule every day:
1. Prep the Night Before
Can you mornings get… chaotic? Don’t let breakfast add to the stress. Prep this Overnight Oats recipe the night before and devour first thing in the morning or on the go. This recipe takes just five minutes to make, and the ingredients are flexible, too. If you don’t have almond milk, try using whatever milk you have on hand. Allergic to nuts? Sub in your favorite nut-free granola or simply omit them.
Mornings might be the only peace and quiet you get before a big day. So set your alarm 20 minutes earlier to get some “me time” and make a hot breakfast you can savor all day. A bowl of whole-grain cereal, a yogurt parfait, or a stack of flapjacks or waffles don’t take very long to make and will fuel your body with the energy it needs to take on the morning. You can find several delicious breakfast recipes on our website to help mix up your breakfast routine.
While eating on the go may not seem ideal, it may be the only option. That’s why we created products like our Kodiak Cups. All you need is a minute to spare and a microwave for a quick breakfast packed with whole grains and protein. Don’t have a Kodiak Cup on hand? While it may take longer than a minute, check out How to Make a Mug Cake on our blog.
We get it, life can be a fast-moving adventure. But your health doesn’t have to take a backseat to your busy schedules. Make breakfast a time for you to enjoy. Do you have any more breakfast tips to add to our list? Share them with us on social media by tagging @kodiakcakes!
