Best Breakfast in a Clean House.jpeg

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. If you are working, studying or running a business, you must not forget to eat a breakfast because it is the meal that will give you energy for the whole day. Breakfast is an excellent occasion to eat together as a family when possible. Establishing good breakfast habits in childhood and maintaining them throughout adolescence may be an important factor in reducing the prevalence of breakfast skipping and developing good eating habits that last a lifetime.

Breakfast also restores glucose levels, an essential carbohydrate that is needed for the brain to function. Many studies have shown how eating breakfast can improve memory and concentration levels and it can also make us happier as it can improve mood and lower stress levels. In studies amongst children, breakfast can improve attainment, behavior and has been linked to improved grades. Just like any other organ in the body, the brain needs energy to work at it's best.

Breakfast provides the body and brain with fuel after an overnight fast - that's where its name originates, breaking the fast! Without breakfast you are effectively running on empty, like trying to start the car with no petrol!

As per Michigan Avenue Magazine, “Five Sustainable Chicago Restaurants for Earth Day: "From the delicate, edible flowers adorning certain pastries to the herbs that accent a concise lineup of seasonal vegetable and grain salads, the rooftop garden planters play a surprisingly big role in the menu."
