Breakfast! Is it really the most important meal of the day? What’s all the buzz about getting more protein at breakfast? And does it matter if you eat breakfast the minute you wake up in the morning? If you’re curious about breakfast or just looking for a few new and nutrient-rich recipes, I’ve got you covered on this week’s Breakfast Benefits episode with guest, Lauren Harris Pincus.
Lauren Harris-Pincus is the authority on the science of breakfast. And just in case you’re wondering … breakfast really is the most important meal of the day. It’s true, and Lauren explains why on the show.
YOUR BODY RUNS BETTER ON BREAKFAST!
Lauren is a registered dietitian nutritionist, mother of two, and author of The Protein Packed Breakfast Club. The book is brimming with delicious and balanced recipes to help you make the most of your family’s morning meal. (Read on for details on how you can win a copy.)
On the show, Lauren explains why eating breakfast is good for your health (don’t skip it!), why it’s important to distribute your protein intake throughout the day, starting with breakfast, and why kids who eat breakfast do better in school. Together, we share our mutual love of wild blueberries, dish about our best-ever breakfast recipes including my new Savory Oats with Shiitake Mushrooms and Spinach, and explain why a bowl of sugar cereal is a no no at breakfast.
