Feed yourself first

A good day has two essential ingredients: a good night’s sleep, and a healthy breakfast.

As a father of five, it’s not always possible to guarantee a good night’s sleep. Sometimes, despite my best intentions and best laid plans, a full 8 hours of sleep just doesn’t come together.

But I can almost always engineer a healthy breakfast.

A breakfast loaded with carbohydrates and sugar is sure to bring an energy crash mid-morning, as the body burns off that rich, fast-burning sugar fuel. But a breakfast balanced with protein and fat, not long after waking, will fuel the body and mind for hours.
