For years, nutrition experts have said that a healthy breakfast is a key start to the day. Not only do we think and perform better on the job, they tell us, it supports our well-being in many other ways. The next time you rush out the door in the morning without something to eat, consider this: Skipping breakfast can set you up for overeating later in the day. A healthy a.m. meal, on the other hand, can give you energy, satisfy your appetite, and set the stage for smart decisions all day long. Snack bars, toaster pastries and doughnuts may be fast breakfast options, but a better morning meal is balanced mix of healthy foods that will keep you satisfied longer than your morning commute.
