According to FastCompany.com, people who eat breakfast are 12.3% healthier throughout the day than those who don’t!
We’ve all been there, where we don’t make time for breakfast, we skip it and hope to eat it at work or just wait until lunchtime. But there’s no need to. Breakfast is one of the most important meals of your day and the sooner you recognise that the easier your journey to a healthier, better lifestyle will become.
We also know that breakfast whilst on a health-kick can be a difficult habit to kick when you’re used to a fried egg and bacon roll (yum!), or cereal with your children. To make things a little easier for you, we’ve compiled a list of breakfast ingredients and ideas that will make you feel fuller for longer, so you can enjoy eating lunch and not tuck into those mid-morning biscuits with your coffee (we see you!).

Alternatively, we also recommend buying a mixed bag of frozen berries from your local supermarket and blending them into a shake.

You know what they say about the doctor and apples. Well its true!
