Hands up if you’ve ever rolled out of bed and rushed out the door, skipping that all-so-important first meal of the day. That’s a bad habit, my friend, and it’s probably one of which we’ve all been guilty. But what’s the deal? Why is breakfast so hyped? Here’s why a square meal in the bright and early matters so much, and why the best breakfast in Reno and Truckee is right here at Full Belly Deli.
Breaking the Fast
After a night of zzzz’s, that first meal of the day literally breaks your body’s mini fast. It’s like the pull-start on your lawn mower – that first meal kick starts your metabolism so you can start burning the day’s calories. And while many of us rely on good ol’ fashioned caffeine to get going in the morning, a solid breakfast is always a better way to energize yourself for the day. Skipping your morning meal messes with your body’s innate fast/eat rhythm, which can make you feel sluggish and tired. And that’s a bummer.
WebMD cites studies that have linked eating breakfast to:
- Improved memory and concentration
- Decreased levels of the “bad” cholesterol
- Lowered risk of diabetes, heart disease, and being overweight
Good stuff, right? While all of those benefits may actually relate to the fact that folks who eat breakfast just have healthier lifestyles (although that’s still up in the air), why not hedge your bets? Especially when you can leave all the kitchen work to Full Belly Deli.
