You have probably been hearing most of your life that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. There seems to be some new evidence and studies that support this long held belief. A recent study out of Cambridge University backs up the concept of starting your day with a good breakfast just makes sense.

The study brought forth evidence that starting with a healthy breakfast can lower your risk of HEART DISEASE. Since we have over 650,000 fatal heart attacks in this country alone every year, it could positively change your future to start eating breakfast before heading out the door in the morning if you are not already doing so.

(Old Irish Proverbs)

"There's no need to fear the wind if your haystacks are tied down"

"You'll never plow a field by turning it over in your mind"

Thoughts from the Father:

Jeremiah 29:11

11 For I know the planss I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prospert you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.u


Eating Breakfast:


CAMBRIDGEMASSACHUSETTS—A recent study conducted at Harvard University and published in the journal Circulation found that eating breakfast every day and eliminating late night snacks could help prevent heart disease.

The study included 26,902 participants between the ages of 45 and 82. The researchers followed them over a 16-year period and analyzed food frequency questionnaire data.

The team found that those who reported that they skipped breakfast had a 27 percent higher risk of heart attack or death from heart disease compared to those who ate breakfast. In addition, they found that those who ate late night snacks before bed had a 55 percent higher heart disease risk compared to those who did not eat after dinner.

According to lead study author, Dr. Leah Cahill:

"Don't skip breakfast… eating breakfast is associated with a decreased risk of heart attacks. Incorporating many types of healthy foods into your breakfast is an easy way to ensure your meal provides adequate energy and a healthy balance of nutrients, such as protein, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals.”

If you are interested in minimizing your risk for heart disease, you should consider eating breakfast and skipping late night snacks every day.
