There is nothing that requires us to eat certain foods in breakfast. But today we live in an addiction-prone society. We are addicted to unhealthy foods for everyday snacks and sometimes we skip breakfasts with an effort of losing weight or because we’re busy with the morning rush. Sometimes it’s easier to use preserved and stale foods to avoid suffering pangs of hunger during the day. But it is recommended to start your day with a heavy healthy breakfast because it is the most important meal of the day. A healthy sandwich can be an ideal pick among other healthy foods which can be the best solution for your breakfast because they are easy to make quickly, there are many types and you can take them with you.
Most of us are upset about our waist line and we avoid proteins to lose some inches. But we normally end up with extra inches instead.

Pancakes are for sure tasty but what to add to make them healthy is the only question that must be answered. You need to lower their calorie without sacrificing any flavor. Do not choose the egg yolks because they have more fats and cholesterol. Choose white wheat to increase fiber and lower the calories count. You may not add sugar because one teaspoonful has 15 calories and it goes straight into the blood stream causing swings in blood sugar. Therefore by avoiding sugar you can have a more healthy breakfast.
Now, we must acknowledge that breakfast is the most important meal of the day and be aware of the benefits of having a healthy breakfast. It is like a priming pump that gives energy to your body for the long day’s activity. You need to establish the appropriate balance between proteins and fats every day because we need them too. For example, if you are a vegetarian, a healthy sandwich will give you the required proteins that you need for building muscle mass.
