You’ve always heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but in some cases it may do more harm than good.

Typical breakfast foods, like cereal and milk or a bagel with cream cheese, lack much of the fiber and nutrients you need to provide enough energy to last you until nighttime. By consuming meals early in the day that adequately nourish your body, you will feel more satisfied as the hours pass and will be less likely to overeat.

Look to pack a nutritional punch to your diet with leafy vegetables, such as kale or spinach. Lean proteins, such as chicken or fish, digest slowly and help maintain your muscles. Adding fruits to your diet provides just the right amount of carbohydrates and hydration to your diet to keep your organs functioning the way they should. Tomorrow morning, switch up your fast food breakfast sandwich for a green salad topped with eggs, tomatoes, and bacon or try preparing a sweet potato hash with a side of turkey sausage to help you get started.

If you have trouble swapping these foods for something healthier, simply rethink the names you give your meals. After all, what matters is the type of fuel your put in your body, no matter what time of day you are eating it. Try it for a week to see how it affects your energy levels/stamina.
