The Best Foods to Kickstart Your Morning
Breakfast: Is it important? Can you skip it? Should you skip it? There are so many debates that say different things about our first meal of the day. The actual word means to ‘break fast’ which comes from your fast that happens every night when you go to sleep. We’re not here to tell you whether skipping breakfast is the right choice for you or not, but we are here to help you fuel your body with a healthy option in the morning. Have you stopped by our Cafe for breakfast lately? We are always switching up our breakfast items, but one thing remains: nutritious and quality food for your morning.
Oats are a great way to start your day. Not only are they incredibly nutritious, but they are rich in antioxidants and key vitamins. Oats are actually one of the most nutrient dense foods you can eat. When starting your day, oats are a great choice because they give you proper fuel and fill you up. Find oats in our oatmeal bowls, granola bars, and occasionally our pastries.
Have you ever wondered why eggs have always been the staple breakfast food we’ve always known? Eggs became a popular breakfast food all over the world in the early 1800s when the Industrial Revolution started. Workers needed energy early in the morning and eggs were an excellent source of protein and energy that fueled a long day’s worth of work. While a lot has changed since that time, our breakfast plates look the same. Hey, it’s good to stick with what works, right? Grab a breakfast burrito, breakfast bowl, or add egg to a Build Your Own option for an additional source of protein.
Besides the obvious energy boost from your morning cup of Joe, there are actually solid health benefits to your daily cup of coffee. Coffee is chalk-full of nutrients like riboflavin, pantothenic acid, manganese, potassium, magnesium, and niacin. According to other studies, the caffeine in coffee can improve several brain functions like memory, mood, and reaction times. Stop by and grab a cup of coffee to pair with your breakfast.
Whether breakfast is a part of your morning routine or not, there is something to be said about the first meal of your day. We’re happy to fuel your morning, afternoon, and evening! And, don’t worry, we also won’t judge you for eating a breakfast burrito at any time of the day.Back to Blog
