Get Pumped With A Smart Breakfast

yb-em
Mom always told us that breakfast was the most important meal of the day, but as we've sped our way into the working world, we've become less concerned about the food pyramid in the a.m. and more focused on ensuring solid caffeination (and perhaps grabbing the occasional pastry). Sound familiar? Turns out, your busy morning schedule could totally be your downfall.

According to the research of Richard Mattes, Ph.D., R.D, professor of nutrition science at Purdue University, what you eat in the morning could make or break your efforts not to scarf everything in sight later on in the day. A high-glycemic food in the morning (like that bagel) can make you hungry for hours, no matter what you eat for lunch. Awesome.
So, what is safe? Foods that take longer to digest due to proteins or complex carbs. You might think you don't have time to eat healthily in the morning, but our friends at YouBeauty beg to differ — check them out for more info on why you need to choose your breakfast wisely, some delicious menu ideas, and more.
