𝗕𝗿𝗲𝗮𝗸𝗳𝗮𝘀𝘁 | 𝘽𝙧𝙚𝙖𝙠 𝙏𝙝𝙚 𝙁𝙖𝙨𝙩...Don't skip it!
The most important meal of the day as we're always told which is pretty much correct.
During the night our body gets up to all sorts of weird and wonderful stuff whilst we're asleep including:
▪️Hormone release such as growth hormone which is essential for growth and development.
▪️Working towards restoring damage caused to our bodies whether this be damaged muscle tissue through training or cuts/injuries etc.
▪️It restores energy in the brain and body to prepare for the next day.
▪️Cortisol (stress hormone) levels are managed by dipping when we go to sleep and increasing during the night to make us more alert come morning time.
This is why poor sleep can lead to so many problems during the day from lack of mental alertness, high stress and poor performance to poor skin, weight loss/gain...plus more.
So when we wake it's really important to feed our bodies after they have worked so hard during the night to look after us, plus it gets your metabolism going 🤗
A solid food meal is always preferable but if you are running late, struggle to get solid food down first thing, or suffer with poor appetite...this quick meal is perfect.

It contains higher protein and good fats with a lower amount of carbohydrates plus added vitamins from the small fruit serving.
