We have all heard the saying that "breakfast is the most important meal of the day." Growing up most of us were hurried out the door to go to school, but not before we ate a good breakfast. But now as adults are we taking the time to eat anything in the mornings, let alone a balanced breakfast that will help fuel us for the rest of the long day ahead? The sad reality is probably not. We don't fuel our bodies properly to begin the day and then we sit and wonder why we are sluggish and have brain fog in the afternoons. The simple answer may be to start having a good protein-packed breakfast first thing in the morning. Dr. Oz has stated on his television show that eating 30 grams of protein within 30 minutes of waking up is a key factor in properly getting the body going and the metabolism burning. A protein shake or a smoothie made with high-quality protein and your favorite fruits, yogurt, and some ice would be a great way to pack in nutrients and still be portable to take out the door with you in the morning if you don't have a lot of time to sit down and eat most days. Getting into a good morning routine is just as essential as having a good nighttime pre-bedtime routine to wind down and have a restful and full night's sleep. Setting your alarm fifteen minutes earlier so you have time to prepare a quick shake or smoothie or even take that time at night to make ahead for the morning. Have everything laid out for the morning or make some overnight oats in a little container that you can take to work with you. There are many ways to stay ahead of the morning rush hour and get out the door with a protein-rich breakfast whether you sit and eat it or have it in your hand as you walk out the door.
