Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, especially for people who are always on the go. We need to eat good food in the morning, specifically within two hours upon waking up to fuel up for the day ahead and to get a much-needed energy boost.
There was even a study conducted in 2014 which showed that people who do not skip breakfast are proven to have lowered their risk for heart diseases and diabetes. They also found that they had a more enhanced memory.
