We’ve all heard – probably hundreds of times – that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Now, there’s interesting research
that shows that people who eat a healthy breakfast are more likely to make healthy food choices throughout the day.
A recent study of American teens has shown that those who skip breakfast are more likely to consume more sweets and soft drinks throughout the day – and less likely to consume vegetables and fruit – than those who have a healthy breakfast.
According to the study, a protein-rich breakfast had the most dramatic effect on daily eating habits. Teens in the study who enjoyed a breakfast rich in protein averaged 200 fewer calories during evening hours, when compared to those who skipped breakfast.
The hitch in all this is that many teens in the study had a hard time finding convenient, protein-rich foods for breakfast. Fortunately for them (and you!), we’ve got plenty of ideas on that. While Van’s Power Grains Protein Waffles
are an obvious suggestion, they’re one of many delicious breakfasts
we recommend that bring a protein punch.
