Breakfast sets the table for a whole lotta big moments. Just think of your favorite days filled with long walks with your dog, adventures to new places, time when you got out of your comfort zone, and everything in between — it all starts here, with a well-balanced breakfast.

1. Supercharge Your Metabolism with Breakfast

(Baylor, Scott, White Health) Angie Asche, RD, emphasizes this point adding that, “B vitamins are essential for energy production and metabolism, vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant, and magnesium plays a role in bone health and muscle function.”

Tip: Set your alarm 20 minutes earlier to get some “me time” and a hot, energizing breakfast like oatmeal, flapjacks, or waffles. It’s a hearty meal that won’t take long, but still fuels you up with the good stuff.
