What do you eat in the morning? Most people will answer that all they have time for is a cup of coffee. While coffee gives you a morning boost of caffeine, you still need food to fuel you for the rest of the day. After all, there’s a reason why doctors call breakfast the most important meal of the day.

According to Web Md, breakfast kick-starts your metabolism and gives you the energy you need to focus on tasks at home, work or school. If your body doesn’t get what it needs from food in the morning, you will feel drained and will reach for sugary foods later.

So, take the time to eat a well-balanced breakfast, and skip the trip to Dunkin Donuts later. Don’t know what to make? Try one of these healthy breakfast recipes to make the most of your morning.
