Yes, eating breakfast is important to get your body adjusted to its daytime regimen. But it is also important that you eat a healthy breakfast. Forget that Danish or doughnut and eat something healthy. It has been shown that eating a healthy breakfast can help keep short-term memory and attention at top performance levels all day long. (Remember this when sending the kids off to school!) Some of the superstar foods for the brain are high-fiber whole grains, lean protein, and whole fruit, all healthy breakfast foods. And have a cup of coffee or hot tea with that breakfast. The mild stimulant found in coffee and some teas improves mental acuity and boosts your ability to concentrate. Note: Many teas do not actually contain tea. Drink one that does in the morning, you can enjoy other teas later in the day.
