Breakfast: Is it Everything it’s Cracked Up to Be?

I just came across this article on the BBC- speaking of the complexities of researching even the basic concept that eating breakfast is a healthful practice. Click on the link above to read the article.

Human research is wrought with confounding variables, as I am constantly discovering in the process of writing my thesis on home food gardening and the relationship between children’s weight and their fruit and vegetable intake.

I am, however, a huge proponent of eating breakfast. Kick-starting your metabolism with a good dose of protein and carbohydrates is the way to go, in my opinion. Plus, it’s a great chance to start out your day on way to 5-a-day (or more!) by incorporating some fruit.

What about you? What’s your favorite breakfast?
