What's the Big Deal About Breakfast?

You wouldn’t try to drive your car without any gas, so, why would you make your body function without its fuel? Many people don’t realize the importance of breakfast; it really is the most important meal of your day!
After sleeping, your body is drained of its fuel sources because it has fasted all night. Inorder to “wake” your body up, it must first be refueled. Breakfast gives your body the kick start it needs to function successfully all day long. By breaking up the word breakfast, you can find why it is such a critical meal; you need to break the fast. By not eating this meal, you are making yourself more tired and irritable.
The benefits of breakfast are just too good to pass up! It helps you perform and concentrate better throughout the day; you could boost your grades just by eating breakfast! Experts have also found that you will actually eat less during the day when you start your day this way, helping you to better maintain your weight. In addition, eating breakfast can speed up your metabolism, while skipping it encourages it to slow down. Why not help yourself by eating breakfast regularly?
As a busy farmer, there may seem like there is no time for breakfast in the morning; however, breakfast can be as simple as grabbing a banana and eating it on your way to work. So, everyone should have time for breakfast! For those of you who don’t like breakfast foods, it’s okay to eat foods that aren’t traditionally eaten in the morning. Breakfast can be as quick and simple as you make it! Here are some tips for quick or non-traditional breakfast foods:
  • Fruit: available at all the dining halls
  • Breakfast bars
  • Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwiches: make your own 
  • Cereal in ready-to-eat bowls: 
  • Bagel with jelly, peanut butter, or low-fat cream cheese: 
  • Trail mix (nuts, dark chocolate pieces, dried fruit, and anything else you like!)
  • Leftover foods like pizza or salad
Breakfast time is family time.

We’re all extra busy on harvest days, and if you have a family, even an adopted one consisting of friends or local farmers, it can be hard to carve out quality time to spend together. Lincolnshire has so many wonderful restaurants that lunch and dinner are the go-to social meals. However, if you’re at work during the day and those options might be out.
Sitting around the breakfast table in the morning is a great way to spend time with family or work buddies, nurturing important relationships. Not to mention it’s a great opportunity to set an example for your kids, since healthy habits start early. Call the breakfast courier to get breakfast delivered to your door and enjoy some quality time with those most important in your life!
Recently, I have been having toasted bagels, garlic and herb soft cheese for breakfast. Keeps me feeling full for a few hours, well until lunch time. I was reading in a magazine, bagels make you fat. Is this true? Please comment below if you have heard about this? 
Also something else that keeps me alive throughout the morning, is my new favourite coffee... "Douwe Egberts Smooth Caramel" Anybody else tried this coffee? I am literally in love. 
Teaspoon of coffee, three sugars and milk... Heaven! 

I can't believe it's Monday Morning already, I am brewing a coffee and toasting a bagel as I am writing this blog for y'all. Definitely couldn't get myself out of bed this morning it was just so snuggly, even though I was on my own. No Farmer to wake me up... with a cup of tea. I had to make myself way downstairs and click the switch. 
I hope y'all had a Great Weekend and Have a fabulous day!!
