Whitsundays locals, stop running on empty and fuel up early

We've all heard it before, breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but why? Having just got out of bed, your brain and body need to re-energise after your overnight fasting. While the type of food you eat also matters, generally speaking, those who eat breakfast have more sustained energy throughout the day. Whether you feel you're too busy or you choose to skip breakfast and substitute with a coffee or tea, you might want to reconsider your daily routines. We've done the research and found out how breakfast benefits our health and wellbeing.

Overall health

After not eating for so long, breakfast not only gives you a prolonged energy boost, but also kickstarts your metabolism. Breakfast foods are a good source of nutrients—like proteins, vitamins and fibre—that are crucial to your health and wellbeing. Also, research suggests breakfast skippers are more likely to become overweight by over-snacking and over-indulging on other meals throughout the day.


Cognitive function

Just like every other organ in your body, your brain needs energy to perform. After 8 hours of sleep, your body’s glucose levels will drop, starving your brain of energy. Glucose can easily be restored with a balanced breakfast, which will consequently improve your brain’s concentration and memory function.


Think for the future

Developing good eating habits is important for your long-term health. Eating breakfast has been linked to reducing the likelihood of obesity, high blood pressure, heart disease and diabetes. Studies suggest that people tend to add more body fat eating small frequent meals, rather than eating large meals 2 to 3 times a day.


Creating a breakfast routine

In order for breakfast to become a part of your everyday routine, you need to make time for it. Give yourself plenty of time to prepare breakfast before heading on your way. If you love your sleep too much, try preparing some easy-to-grab options the night before, or stop off at your local Whitsundays cafe on your way to work.
