Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so says the doctors, and I say they couldn’t have said it better, the best way to start off your day is by giving your body all that it requires to function effectively and leave your mind in optimum performance all day long, but often times our lifestyle demands makes it impossible for us to sit down and have a well planned and cooked meal, so instead we result to junk food or just repeating the same food all the time because it’s fast and saves time.
