Breakfast need not be elaborate, but you should eat it every day. Quality, however, is essential; many of us look to overly sugared, refined carbohydrate-based items (think donuts, pastries, muffins) that may actually have a huge negative impact on our health. We advocate eating breakfast because it leads to improved memory and may affect your energy levels, blood sugar, and mood for the entire day. Our 8 rules help you figure out what to eat for the most-skipped meal of the day—and why you should start if you haven't already.
