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

“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.”

“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!”

“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!”

“I hope you do the food service in heaven.”

“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'd like to just begin by thanking you for being IMMENSELY better than your predecessors. The food has been lightyears better and even more importantly I find that your staff actually enjoys being here doing what they do!!! I don't even know if I could start my mornings without Stacy and Marcus (and the rest of the gang too!!!) because of the great experience and wonderful food that they help provide for us. Thanks CulinArt!!!”

“We appreciate the excellent service that is a hallmark of the Chadwick Culinart team. You all are such professionals - and you always deliver your service in such a pleasant manner! Thank you for everything you do to help make the Village events successful. We greatly appreciate your talents, efforts, and kindness.”

“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.”

“I wanted to take this moment to thank you and your staff for making the Athletic Celebration absolutely wonderful. I cannot say enough great things about the event. The food was outstanding and the service was fantastic. Thank you for your help from start to finish.”
