How many of you have heard that breakfast may be one of the most important meals of the day? According to the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, people who skip breakfast are unlikely to make up their daily requirement for some vitamins and minerals that a simple breakfast would have provided. Breakfast is literally the time when we break the fast that occurs after dinner while we sleep. A pivotal study conducted by researchers at the University of Bath in the United Kingdom found that participants who didn’t skip breakfast maintained more stable blood sugar levels than those who did. Better glucose balance can mean more energy, so it’s critical to optimize your first meal of the day. Here are some great Medifast California breakfast recipes to help get your day off to a fantastic start!
