Waffles…syrup….blueberries….yum. Strangely, I have always preferred frozen waffles over the ones made fresh from the waffle iron. You can imagine my excitement when I found Trader Joe’s waffles that are…wait for it…gluten free, dairy free and refined sugar free. Add blueberries and a little maple syrup for a breakfast fit for a gluten free Queen. Or King.

“Honey, dinner is ready!”

Submitted by: Deborah Tomasetti Perham

Some of my earliest memories throughout the ’60s and ’70s are of sitting around the dinner table with my mom, dad, and sister. Dinner was at 5 o’clock prompt. Mom cooked every night. It was just something we did. Didn’t everyone? When I began working in New York City and not getting off the train until 7:15 p.m., I have a distinct recollections of walking in the door at home and hearing the ding from the microwave…dinner heated for me. Did my mom actually time my steps from the car to the door? The funny thing is, it was important to me to carry on that tradition when I got married.

6 Health Reasons You Should Never Skip Breakfast

SMiller_breakfast1

Why you should never avoid breakfast:

  1. Breakfast improves your metabolism: Your blood sugar level drops down in the morning. You need food that can provide you energy to get through the morning.
  2. Keeps you on track if you’re looking to lose weight: Researchers have found that those who eat breakfast tend to maintain and lose weight. Though people skip breakfast in the hope of losing weight they tend to eat more during lunch or even choose unhealthier options later on which results into weight gain.
  3. Helps to maintain insulin response: Skipping meals leads to a hyper insulin response when calories are consumed later on. That means the level of insulin in blood results into fat accumulation.
  4. Helps perform better at work/school: Hungry employees and students don’t do any good at work/school. When you are hungry you are irritable and disinterested which reflects on your work too.
  5. Burns those calories early: If you have breakfast you can burn those calories early! How is that? Well, instead of going hungry till lunch and then eating something loaded with calories with fewer hours left in the day to burn it consider refueling yourself early and getting enough time to burn those calories.
  6. Skipping breakfast can make you grumpy: Oh yes! If you have been skipping breakfast and are in a bad mood, you probably should know why. Not having breakfast makes you grouchy. You might not even realize it and keep wondering why you’re so irritable!

Stay full, Stay happy!
