The Benefits Of Eating Breakfast For Dinner

Posted on July 31st, 2015 by Chips Restaurants

If you’re like us, then breakfast food has a special place in your heart. And because it’s one of our favorites (and our customers’ too) we serve breakfast all day, every day! Yep, that’s right, breakfast during dinnertime is an option at Chip’s Family Restaurant! But aside from being an absolutely delicious dinner meal, did you know that breakfast foods can actually be beneficial to eat at night too? Check out some of the reasons why below:

Eating breakfast for dinner

  • Quick ‘n’ Easy: After a long day of work and the time spent commuting home, we know that spending hours in the kitchen probably isn’t how you want to spend the rest of your night. However, when you choose to have breakfast for dinner, you won’t have to! And the best part is, not only are breakfast foods relatively easy to make, but they often contain many of the nutrients you need in one sitting as well!
  • Lighter: While many people truly do love breakfast foods, those with hectic jobs and busy schedules tend to skip their morning meal. As a result, they eat so much for lunch that they aren’t hungry for about another six to seven hours, which brings us to late at night. But since consuming so many calories right before bed is bad for your health, it isn’t ideal to get into this type of routine. Rather, if you must eat later in the day, your best bet is to choose a breakfast food as many are much lighter than traditional dinners!
  • Low-calorie:¬†Generally speaking, many breakfast foods are very low in their calorie count. For example, how about an omelet stuffed with vegetables or a fruit smoothie? You may even consider having a bowl of oatmeal topped with nuts or fruit! And in addition to being relatively low in calories, many breakfast foods are also very nutritious. Looking to add some protein to your diet? Eggs are a great way to start!

So, what will you have for dinner today, tomorrow, the day after that?
