Breakfast thoughts by my favorite raw nutritionist Kimberly Snyder:
”Many believe that when dieting, you need to have a solid, filling meal within 20 minutes of waking up. It’s believed this way you will be satiated throughout the day. However, this is not the most efficient way to eat. In order to keep foods moving through the body, its best to eat the lightest foods first, and save the heavier foods for later. Otherwise, we get dragged down by digestion and have to contend with needing more caffeine and additional snacks later. Digestion takes an enormous amount of energy. Having a heavy breakfast is like starting the day with a brick tied on- it drags us down. It is true we need nutrients in the morning, which is why the Glowing Green Smoothie is the best thing to have in the morning. It is blended, so our bodies don’t waste energy on absorbing the nutrients, and we get a whopping dose of vitamins, minerals, fiber and other important phytonutrients,” (http://www.kimberlysnyder.net/blog/2011/06/28/diet-myths-they-dont-want-you-to-know-part-1/#more-6420).
