American Egg Board  – The Second Installment of “Incredible Breakfast Trends”- http://www.aeb.org/blog/food-service-blog

We have been told for years that breakfast is the most important meal of the day and that skipping it has dire consequences and I can’t even count the numerous times I have seen this theory being used to tout one of the latest trend in the food and beverage industry. Yet, I can’t help but wonder how true this really is since for myself, I have always had issues eating breakfast. As a kid, it used to actually make me physically ill to eat before a certain time of the day.

As an adult it is a very rare circumstance where I have an appetite in the morning let alone choke down what seems to me as a monster meal that my research into what a healthy breakfast  should consist of. Just like many others outhere I am trying to live a healthy lifestyle and I am interested in having a balanced diet which has certainly been an uphill battle. I think it’s fair to say I am in reasonably good health and I have never ever been one to regularly have breakfast beyond a hot drink (usually tea or hot water with lemon). In sporadic instances, I may have a fruit or some type of granola bar and I am usually set until lunch. So, it begs the question? Am I just an anomaly? Or are there more people out there like me and this whole breakfast thing is just hype created to sell food to masses?

  1. I’m not qualified to comment on how meals impact the majority, but I can speak to how the first meal of the day impacts my life.
    When I was younger I usually skipped breakfast. I would start to get hungry mid-morning and, because I’d be at work, I’d pick up something fast to meet my need. Finding something healthy was difficult. Often it would be a muffin and a coffee.
    I now make breakfast my most important meal, and have over the years programmed myself to make the time. I’ve found that I have more energy throughout the day, and I usually only have several small snacks. I know it sounds boring, but it’s actually simplified my life and I feel more healthy. I used to suffer from migraines and fatigue, but haven’t for years now.
    And the beauty about social media is that there are apps to help with planning and people are more than happy to share breakfast ideas!
