Oatmeal Breakfast Bars

My Grandma Fern always told me that breakfast was the most important meal of the day.  It’s true!

We all know that food is fuel and energy for our body and without it we just can’t be our best throughout the day.  In fact breakfast is just that- “Break-fast.”  You are breaking the fast that has been 8-12 hours long and your body is ready for more fuel.

Eating in the morning actually increases your metabolism allowing you to burn calories more efficiently.  If you skip breakfast when you finally feed your body it burns those calories slower, because it doesn’t know when to expect the next meal.  This slows down your metabolism and can cause you to gain or retain weight.

If time is why you are skipping breakfast instead of going without, try making these Oatmeal Breakfast Bars the night before and grab one as you run out the door!
