Eat Breakfast Every Day

In this week's challenge you must eat breakfast every day. Roll your eyes if you like, but the old bromide about breakfast being the most important meal of the day is true. Breakfast eaters tend to have better diets overall, consuming more fruit, vegetables, milk, and whole grains than non-breakfast eaters. And because the time between dinner and the next morning's meal is the longest your body goes without food, breakfast has an effect on you that's different from any other meal. Eating within 2 hours of waking can make a difference in the way you metabolize glucose, or blood sugar, all day. Here is a list of why you should be eating breakfast more often.

Benefits of Eating Breakfast
1. Energy boost to start the day
2. Sharper focus
3. Breakfast helps reduce morning crankiness
4. Metabolism boots
5. Prevents starvation
6. Keeps you from overeating
7. Allows you to properly portion your meal
8. Helps lower the "bad" cholesterol
9. Breakfast can be nutritious and delicious
10. Eat breakfast to lose weight

To help you out with this week's challenge here are some fast breakfast ideas that won't slow you down in the morning.
