I have to admit, breakfast has always been a challenge for me. I am not a big "morning eater." I can't sit down to a heaping plate of pancakes and sausage, and I do not eat chewy liquid chickens. At all. (Chewy liquid chickens are eggs, for those who may be wondering.)
So while I may not have much of an appetite in the mornings, I do understand the importance of starting off the day with a nutritious meal. Our bodies need fuel to get through the day, and without it, there can be very real consequences like binging later in the day, afternoon fatigue, and even difficulties losing weight. Yes, the human body burns calories and fat more efficiently when you EAT. Otherwise, the metabolism will become sluggish and those extra pounds won't come off nearly as easily.
Luckily, I recently discovered a brand new product from Nutri-Grain, Fruit & Oat Harvest Cereal Bars. These are not only wonderful when you're running around like a chicken with it's head cut off in the morning, they also help keep your tummy full-feeling since they are a wonderful source of protein and whole grains.
