5 Breakfasts That Warm Up Your Brain


4
Eggs

Eggs are a traditional breakfast choice, but also a smart one. They're high in protein, and since protein takes longer for your body to digest, you feel full longer. That means you're less likely to reach for sugary snacks in between breakfast and lunch, which not only aids with weight control, but helps keep your blood sugar and mental alertness at healthy levels.

Egg whites especially contain the purest form of protein around. The high quality of egg protein helps the body better absorb it. Eggs are also chock-full of vitamins and minerals, which are necessary compounds to keep your body and mind working together.
