Is breakfast still the most important meal of the day? I know a lot of people who skip breakfast. According to Harvard, I also know a lot of people who absolutely get breakfast wrong…including me!

According to Harvard Health, the typical American breakfast is a carbohydrate bomb featuring  muffins, bagels, cereal, pancakes and toast.  The we add in fatty bacon or sausage and as Dr. Monique Tello tells it, you’ve got a recipe for heart disease.

So, do we need carbs for energy or do we need proteins for stability or what?

In a Harvard Health blog, Dr. Monique Tello recommends the perfect breakfast for everyone to have every day.  It’s not a 3 minute egg, it’s not a bagel and it’s not chicken fried steak and grits.  Dr. Tell says to serve up a dollop of plain yoghurt topped with berries and sprinkled with any combination of granola, nuts and seeds.

Sound good? Me neither, but after all, it IS Harvard.
