The Facts Don’t Lie {#PowerofthePeanut #sponsored}

According to WebMD (hey, it’s a reliable source!) breakfast is the most important meal of the day.  I believe this.  I make sure my children eat a good breakfast.  I ensure their brains and bodies are receiving the nutrition they need to work effectively. Science doesn’t lie because it’s made of facts.  Bodies that don’t receive proper nutrition are sluggish and can’t function at their optimal level.  I would feel horrified if my children went to school without breakfast.

Now for the guilty confession.  I don’t eat breakfast, most of the time.  I blame our crazy schedule.  In 45 minutes I have to take three peacefully, slumbering children and have them dressed, fed, and ready for their school day.  It’s intense.  Somewhere within that time span I also need to throw on some clothes for myself and take care of the puppy.  I might like to eat, but it’s at the bottom of my to-do list.

Inevitably after the kids are at school and I’m rolling onto my second or third cup of coffee, I start to feel funny as I sort through spreadsheets.  I’m blessed to work from home, with the flexibility to work around my kid’s schedule.  Time is a precious commodity to me.  But as my sluggishness persists I can’t help, but wonder why can’t I power through it? Um, hello!? I’m starving?! My poor body needs food to work optimally.  I apply the facts (science) to my children’s lives, but I need to work better at incorporating it into mine.  It’s a simple truth.  In order to work properly a body needs fuel.  Unfortunately coffee can only help to a certain extent:)

Quick, easy, on-the-go breakfasts are what I need to keep my body fueled for my long, busy days.  It’s not rocket science, but it is an important truth that I need to remember.  Success comes from wise food choices.

Do you ever feel sluggish and then remember that you are not properly fueled for the day?  Do you find yourself too busy to eat?

Mr. Peanut clearly knows what a hungry tummy needs…..
