We understand how frustrating it can be to try and ‘perfect’ a diet. There are so many contradicting sources telling you what is good for you, what is bad for you, and what is even better for you. Supplements, shakes, vitamins, clean foods, whole foods- the list goes on; however one issue that seems to be pretty stable in the world of eating right is that breakfast is (still) the most important meal of the day.
Most people are unaware that a healthy breakfast can actually fight off signs of aging and acne. Protein based breakfasts keep your blood sugar stable, which will encourage healthy skin. Cereals with less sugar and higher in fiber are great sources of filling nutrients (extra step for the skin, switch to almond milk since dairy can be a cause of acne and inflammation). Eggs and breakfast meats are also a great way to start the day containing extra protein keeping you fuller longer, and stabilizing your blood sugar aiding in better eating habits as the day goes on.
