Breakfast – “The Most Important Meal of the Day”

Many people have heard the saying, “breakfast is the most important meal of the day.” This is true for a few reasons. Eating breakfast can help improve concentration, cognitive performance and assure our body has plenty of energy to use throughout the day! When we wake up in the morning, we need to replenish our fuel and “break the fast” from our last meal the day before. Think about a car with no gas – you wouldn’t try to drive a car on empty. Similar to a car, we need to refuel our body each morning to function properly.

Breakfast is also a great meal to help us consume important vitamins and minerals.

  • Fiber: cereal, oatmeal, whole wheat toast and bagels
  • Calcium and Vitamin D: milk, yogurt, and fortified orange juice
  • Healthy Fats: nuts, nut butters, and seeds
  • Protein: eggs, Greek yogurt, milk, nuts, and nut butters
  • Vitamins and Minerals: fruits (fresh, dried, 100% juice), veggies, and fortified cereals

If mornings are a rush and it’s a challenge to squeeze in breakfast, try prepping your meal the night before so you can grab it and go! (Check out our “Boost Your Breakfast With These Bowls” post from September 2018 for more ideas!)

  • Prep a batch of muffins over the weekend
  • Store individual bags of frozen fruit and vegetables in the freezer for a fast smoothie in the morning
  • Make mini egg omelets in muffin tins and store in the freezer for an already cooked protein packed breakfast
  • Make overnight oats in a mason jar and grab them on your way out
  • Keep yogurts in the fridge and pair with some berries
  • Toast a frozen waffle and spread on your favorite nut butter

There are so many ways to start your day with a well-balanced meal. Try making breakfast part of your daily routine!

** With that said – as important as breakfast is, don’t forget about your other meals and snacks too! Be prepared with packed meals and snacks if you’re on the go so your body never has to run on empty.

What our clients are saying

“Just want to take a moment to thank you for running such a great kitchen. It’s been a huge benefit to have such a delicious and various assortment of foods to choose from, all without having to leave the building. I’m always amazed at the daily variety and the quality of food that is offered. The cafeteria has made my food choices as easy as can be.”

“What a night! You and your team rocked it and made us look like stars. Great working with you and know we will have more chances to work together on future events.”

“The dinner I had tonight at Forman was not only the best meal I have had at Forman in the entire time I have been here, it was the best meal I can remember having anywhere in a long time. [It] was a restaurant quality meal, and it added to the enjoyment that the two young ladies serving me could not have been more charming. What an energizing way to finish a weekend eating a dinner like that.”

“I would like to thank you and your staff for helping to make our Annual Holiday Party a Great Success.  You did an Amazing job from the décor, the food and the service you provided! I have heard nothing but great comments. As always, I enjoyed working with you and your team.”

“Thank You for once again going above and beyond to ensure that our programs are a success. Your willingness to customize menus as well as provide your expert guidance to develop a well-rounded selection of offerings is what keeps us coming back! The food is always exceptional! Our programs would not be a success without the CulinArt team!”

“I just wanted to give a huge compliment to the cook at Main Street. Today I had the Salmon Super Bowl and it was amazing!!!! Every day I go in there she always has something that looks too wonderful to pass up! Thank you for always having such a variety of food!”

“Thank you for including me today in the food waste demonstration/[chef competition] and flattering me with the role of “judge.” I will proudly don the [Stop Food Waste Day] apron the next time I plan an “event” in our own kitchen. I think this is a very worthwhile cause and the statistics you read off are staggering. They, alone, can intimidate a home chef, let alone be the “driver’ for a professional one.”

“Yesterday I ordered the special (Bloody Mary Burger) which was one of the best burgers I’ve ever tasted, [but] this e-mail is not to praise the burger.  Eating the burger reminded me of the great service, professionalism, the smiles, the knowledge and the great food that I have come to love each and every day.  Your team, who really work as a team, take their time to explain nutrition and meal ideas, and encourage healthy eating.  I wouldn’t change one thing about this crew. I would like to extend my heartfelt gratitude for their hard work each and every day.”

“What a wonderful dinner we had tonight for our international families. The food was delicious and well presented as well.”

“What a difference a top chef makes to student satisfaction and enjoyment of campus life!  At a recent boarding school conference, food was mentioned as a key retention method and it is really true. The comforts of home are found in good food and meals enjoyed with friends. We couldn’t be more pleased with the healthy and delicious daily options presented by our chef and his team. Frank even has a suggestion box, so he is always open to new ideas and he even offers cooking classes for our students!”
