Breakfast can be such a complicated meal, however it is the most important. Leaving the house without breakfast is like expecting your car to keep driving after there is no more gas. Eventually, you will just sputter out and barely make your way to the side of the road before passing out. Or you will try and revive yourself with terrible sugar treats and more coffee. We have to feed our brains people!! Having a nice mixture of healthy fats, proteins and carbs is a great way to make sure you get the nutrition you need to make it to lunch. This is called eating for your macros.
