Breakfast provides our body with fuel after an overnight fast. Eating breakfast, even if it’s just something small, helps keep blood sugar stable and saves us from those cravings that appear out of nowhere!
When we have protein for breakfast we don’t generate nearly as high of an insulin response. Insulin is the hormone produced in the pancreas that regulates the amount of blood glucose. Lowering your insulin levels means the body stores less fat and blood glucose doesn’t crash after a meal.
Our metabolism and blood sugar control are also better in the morning, so it makes sense to eat more food earlier in the day.
Check out our Green Omelette Recipe for a protein and nutrient packed breakfast.
