Why eating breakfast is important

Many studies have linked eating breakfast with good health. Not only does a healthy breakfast set you up for the day and kick start your metabolism so that it can help you to burn calories, it also provides you with the energy you need to stay focused. Whether that’s on work, studies or just going about your day.

Eating breakfast has also been positively linked to low cholesterol and decreased chances of getting diabetes, heart disease, and suffering from obesity.

Think of your breakfast like the fuel your body needs to get into gear – much like you’d fill your car tank with gasoline, you need to make sure your body has what it needs to run smoothly and efficiently.

Is eating breakfast linked to healthy weight management?

According to WebMD, research has found that in general, people who regularly eat breakfast tend to be thinner. But it is important that you pay attention to what you eat which is something we’ll go on to discuss next. A donut won’t do! Nor will popping last night’s leftover takeaway in the microwave. Your focus should be on making sure you get a good source of protein and preferably some fiber to help keep you feeling fuller for longer.

Low-carb breakfast ideas

If you are following a low-carb, keto lifestyle, how can the breakfast that you choose help get your body burning those ketones and your fat reserves?

Below, you’ll find some of our absolute favorite healthy breakfast dessert bowls guaranteed to provide all the protein, nutrients and tastiness you need to start your day, to break your FAST, not your diet!
