Healthy Eating Tip: Sit Down and Eat Breakfast

I always eat breakfast. The thing is that I eat it while doing about a million other things and then when all is said and done I don't really feel like I've eaten breakfast at all. Recently I've been trying to actually give myself five minutes each morning to sit down and eat — I do this at lunch and dinner, why not breakfast too? This way I can take a step back and focus on my upcoming day and enjoy my meal. An added bonus is that once I get into the office I feel satisfied and don't need to scavenge on whatever morning treat is waiting in the kitchen here at Sugar HQ.

This is way easier said than done, by the way, but if you find yourself starving by the time you get to work even though you already ate then you may want to give it a try.

i think about 90% of the worlds population dont sit and eat breakfast, were to busy with life & work. When i sit and have breakfast it feels like im wasting time. :/

I just started making breakfast a priority about 2 weeks ago and it's actually helped me to start getting up for work ontime instead of hitting the snooze button 3 or 4 times. If I do get up late though I'll do a travel cup of grapefruit juice or soy milk; I know I'll get hungry sooner but it's still nice to have something in my tummy besides coffee or diet coke.

I'm usually rushing out the door in the morning, but because I take vitamins first thing when I wake up I'll grab a piece of whole wheat bread on my way out the door to eat in the car. Once I get to work I'll usually sit down with oatmeal and fruit because my mornings are a little more laid back. Lucky me!

I always sit down for breakfast, but I usually eat breakfast at 6:30am, and by the time I get to work three hours later, I'm a little bit hungry. So I bring a granola bar or yogurt with me as a mid-morning snack.

Not a bad idea. But sometimes work is so crazy and I barely even have time to eat breakfast at all! I can't eat right when I wake up beacuase for me it's just too early. So I usually just eat at work at my desk, but some mornings are just so hectic!

For me, breakfast is a part of my morning yoga routine. I use at least 30 minutes to sit down, and I often get up way early just to have enough time to enjoy my precious morning food while I'm reading the newspaper. It gives me the best start ever! Way to go, Fit! <3 Frosty hugs from Silje in Norway
