Breakfast is most often the first meal of the day, yet it is frequently eaten at any time of day or night - and can always be found in The Woodlands. Breakfast foods can vary widely between countries, but often include a carbohydrate such as grains, fruit and/or vegetable, protein, dairy, and a beverage. A number of Woodlands area restaurants offer breakfast food all day while others are limited to certain hours.
Coffee, tea, juice, cereal, pancakes, sausages, bacon, loaf cakes, fresh fruit, vegetables, eggs, baked beans, muffins, crumpets and toast with butter and/or jam are common examples of breakfast foods, though a large range of preparations and ingredients are associated with breakfast globally.
Nutritional experts have referred to breakfast as "the most important meal of the day," citing studies that find that people who skip breakfast are disproportionately likely to have problems with concentration, metabolism, and weight. This may be based on people who are generally bound to a usual routine including working from 8 to 5, 5 or more days a week and sleeping an average of 8 or more hours each night. Today's society is no longer an 8 to 5 and then go home atmosphere like it was in the past few decades.
People today are more likely to maintain very different waking hours depending on a variety of factors and 24 hour restaurants are in place, ready to feed all of those night owls, grave yard shift workers and insomniacs alike.
When eating a healthy breakfast, you're more likely to:
Consume more vitamins and minerals
The Nationwide Food Consumption Survey (NFCS) revealed that adequate amounts of calcium, iron, Vitamin A and zinc are often missing from American Diets and skipping breakfast happens to be the biggest contributing factor.
Have better concentration and productivity throughout the morning
Studies show that eating breakfast provides energy that can increase concentration levels. Eating a morning meal can also help prevent unwanted sugary cravings throughout the day when we start to feel sluggish and need an energy boost.
Control your weight
Eating the proper fortified breakfast combination, will leave your appetite content and your stomach full until lunch time leaving you no reason to partake in excessive eating. According to a study from the USDA, kids who eat breakfast are less likely to become obese, 22% of breakfast skippers were said to be obese, compared to 15 percent for cereal eaters.
