We often hear people say breakfast is the most important meal of the day. In reality, it’s not any more important than any of the other meals in our day, but unfortunately it’s the one that often gets overlooked or skipped. While eating breakfast alone isn’t going to shed weight, it can help set the stage for the rest of the day.
If we feed our body whole nutritious foods in the morning, we fuel it with the energy to be active. We’ll also provide nutrients and protein, and avoid unnecessary snacking (a big contributor to weight gain). There are no magical foods for weight loss.

When we think of breakfast, most people will think of eggs. They are a staple breakfast food. Not only do they taste good, but they are fast and easy to make. Plus, they are packed with protein and iron which leaves us feeling full until our next meal. “Protein gives our metabolism the greatest boost and is also the most satiating,” writes Live Strong.
Eggs get bonus points (especially these days) for the fact that they are also relatively inexpensive and super versatile! There are so many different ways to enjoy eggs — scrambled, fried, boiled, sunny side up, or in an omelette with lots of veggies.
