What Breakfast is Right for You?

The report is due in two hours. Or perhaps you’re in the middle of a mid-term exam. Or you’re making sales calls. Suddenly, bam! Around 10:30 a.m. you hit a wall. All you want to do is look out the window. or nap. Hmm… what did you eat for breakfast?

I hate to say, “I told you so,” so I’ll turn to Mom, who may have said it countless times: Breakfast is the most important meal of the day! Breakfast is the meal designed to supply a third of the macro and micronutrients your body needs to run without a hitch.

So what are you eating each morning to do all these things? A cup of coffee gulped down on the go? A cup of sugary yogurt and granola or a muffin eaten at your desk? A quick handful of nuts? Nothing at all?

Your body deserves so much better than that, and so do you!

When you eat a good breakfast, your day goes smoothly. No growling stomachs, low blood sugar shakiness, or wandering attention to keep you from nailing those big goals you’ve made for yourself. If you want to truly thrive and do your best, you’ve got to treat your body the best. It is, after all, your tool for making everything happen.


Different foods feed people differently.One of the best – and most fun – ways to find out which foods serve YOU most powerfully is something called the Breakfast Experiment.For one week, eat a different breakfast each day. Record in a notebook what you ate, how you felt immediately after the meal, and how you felt again two hours later.

Day one: scrambled eggs or tofu
Day two: bean soup or a bean salad
Day three: oatmeal
Day four: boxed breakfast cereal
Day five: muffin and coffee
Day six: fresh fruit
Day seven: fresh vegetables

Feel free to repeat the experiment for another seven days with different foods each morning (other ideas to use are meat, green smoothie, yogurt, and quinoa). Which breakfasts made you feel energized? Which ones didn’t? After the experiment, try adding in more of the foods that made you feel great!
