One of the pearls of wisdom, if such a thing really exists, that I have managed to glean from looking into diets etc., is that eating properly helps.
My grandmother always insisted on giving us three proper meals a day ie. breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Of course, when you’re running about the place, oversleeping and generally end up with a messy, modern lifestyle, it’s all too easy to forget about the simple adages.
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day
You’ve probably heard that one many times in the past. I know I have.
For the last few years I’ve almost entirely ignored breakfast. I’ve got by on cups of coffee with either croissants or that “wonderful” Irish invention – the breakfast roll!
A few weeks ago I decided to make a change in my lifestyle. I’d previously been trying to avoid breakfast rolls and had moved onto croissants instead, which obviously wasn’t that much better. I had to stop, so I decided that I would make an effort to have breakfast of some kind every morning BEFORE I left the house.
I’d love to say that I’m tucking into grapefruits and all sorts of weird and wonderful healthy items at 8am, but the truth be told I’m not. I’m simply making myself a pot of fresh coffee and having some toast (or cereal) while listening to the morning radio.
Has it made a difference?
I’m not 100% sure as yet, but I definitely feel more energetic and less lethargic for most of the morning, which is a good thing. Obviously if I eat better food for breakfast ie. avoid the toast entirely it would be better for me, but it’s probably better to take things one step at a time.
