Why breakfast can kickstart your metabolism

Eating breakfast, not skipping breakfast, will actually increase your chances of reaching your weight loss goals. A healthy and filling breakfast will satisfy you right to lunch, keeping your blood sugars stable and your energy levels firing.  If you’re not adding fuel to your system, your body will burn calories more slowly because you don’t have enough stored energy. Eating a well balanced diet will increase your metabolism allowing you to burn calories more efficiently throughout the day.  
Just eating breakfast is not enough.  You have to ensure you are giving your body what it needs.  Eat foods with a high nutritional value that will give your body the vitamins and minerals it needs to function effectively. 

Foods to Eat
Make healthy choices with your breakfast and give yourself enough time to eat.  If you are in a hurry in the morning, prepare your breakfast the night before or eat something that is portable. Soak some protein-fortified oats or quinoa overnight in a container with berries, almonds and low-fat greek yoghurt. You can take this straight to work with you or have 20 minutes to yourself to relax at home before your hectic day starts.
Whether it’s for weight loss or maintaining a healthy lifestyle, eating breakfast will help start your day off right and keep you going.  Make sure you make the right choices. I like Brookfarm's gluten-free porrij mix, with no added sugar and a variety of protein-enriched grains :) delish! I top with sugar-free vanilla yoghurt, blueberries and almonds. 

This is my favourite breakfast choice!
