So let’s get an early start on this.

Is breakfast the most important meal of the day? NOPE… Water is?

It’s a great idea for you to drink cold water as soon as wake because it has been proven to give your body more energy throughout the day and allows for your body temperature to regulate and burn fuel… this means you will burn fat!


Does it actually kickstart your metabolism? NOPE!

Science shows that adding the wrong things in your body no matter what time of the day you consume it, you are in jeopardy of slowing down your metabolism. Its highly you know what and how your body burns fuel. This will let you know what you can and cannot eat to speed or slow down your meta burn rate. 


Old evidence suggested that eating breakfast jump-starts your metabolism and helps you burn more calories throughout the day. Or eating within an hour of waking up, you are signaling to your brain that more food is coming. This will place your body into “conserve” mode, where your body doesn’t use calories, it starts to consume the energy that you’ve stored up overnight. However, this old  science has since been debunked. SOOOOOO inconclusion, skipping breakfast and prolonging the fasting period called “intermittent fasting” has the opposite effect. As with any diet protocol, the most important factor is how many calories are consumed, regardless of when or how often.


Is breakfast a made-up meal? YES

Listen… The rise of cereal established breakfast as a meal with distinct foods and created the model of processed, ready-to-eat breakfast that still largely reigns. And it all depends on advertising and convincing you that breakfast is the most important meal of the day.


The term breakfast merely means to break fast.

You’re literally breaking a 12-hour or more fast with your first meal of the day. This meal could start at any part of the day. Let’s say you eat dinner around 6-8 p.m. and then sleep for roughly 7 to 8 hours. That’s practically half a day without any nutrients. If you stayed within your normal calorie range during the previous day, you might even wake up a little growl in your stomach. If this is you — please eat! It’s natural and necessary that your body wants to replenish the nutrients (and water) it lost during a night of sleep and you should listen to your body.


Now that we are all awake, lets FLAVR some “breakfast”

Before we start, it’s important to choose the right mix of macronutrients to give your brain and your body the fuel it needs to thrive. For example, choose breakfast foods that contain a mix of carbohydrates + protein + healthy fats + fiber. Carbs will give you energy right away, and the protein will give you a boost later on. Fiber will keep you feeling full. Here are some healthy combinational recipes to start with, whenever you decide to “BREAK-FAST”.
