We have all heard this statement: “Breakfast is the most important meal of the day”. Yet,  we keep drinking a cup of coffee and a donut in the morning. The importance of breakfast can't be overstated. It provides you energy to start your day, it helps to maintain your weight and it affects your performance during the day.

At Great Harvest in Cookeville, we are always worried about your health. That's why we tell you what you should include in your breakfast.

Carbohydrates

We can find them in fruits and whole grains. They will provide you immediate energy to start your day, plus they are a source of fiber. Try to include a bowl of fresh fruit with yogurt and a slice of whole grain bread.

Protein

Muscles, hair, blood and many other things in your body need protein. We can find it in eggs, meats and cheese. A great idea is to prepare a ham and cheese omelette. Don't eat bacon and sausages too often! They contain saturated fats that can be unhealthy in the long run.

Drinks

A glass of milk or a glass of juice are recommended. You can add fruit to your milk to create a nutritious smoothie. If you choose juice, make sure it's all-natural. Some juices contain artificial flavors and sugar that can translate to weight gain.

We know that your daily routine can be an obstacle, but try to prepare a delicious breakfast for you and your family. Make sure to consult your doctor if you suffer from a health condition.

Keep in mind that at Great Harvest, we mill our flour daily. That way, you get all the benefits from the whole grains. Think about us the next time you are looking for the most delicious and healthy bread in Cookeville.
