In my whole forty-something years of living, I have never heard, until the other day that is, that breakfast literally means break a fast. Of all the people I have told this interesting tidbit to, I’m the only one who just recently found this out.
My dad also shared a tidbit with me about breakfast, though I believe the original source was Dr. Oz from the TV show. He said that you should eat protein within thirty minutes of waking up. From what I remember, you will be more energetic, crave sugar less (if you do), and it aids in weight loss. Speaking of Dr. Oz, he will be in town here on Saturday, March 23, at the Gardens Mall, in case you are interested.
So who’s with me on eating some protein after waking in order to break the fast we’ve been in?
