We all know breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but who said you can only eat it between the hours of 6:00am and 10:00am? Sure, it provides our bodies and our brains with fuel after an overnight fast and it kickstarts our days by giving us energy, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy breakfast foods any time of day. Below, we’re confirming why it’s perfectly fine to eat breakfast whenever you get the craving:
It’s Cost Effective
Ever notice that it’s much cheaper to go out for breakfast than it is for lunch or dinner? How many times were you able to get a well-balanced meal for under $15 when you went out to dinner? Breakfast foods tend to be much cheaper than what we normally think of for lunch or dinner which makes it a great option any time of day.
It Doesn’t Take Much Time To Prepare
In a rush? You’re in luck! Most breakfast foods only take a few minutes to prepare – there’s not much to marinate to to season which can save you lots of time. Just think about how quickly an egg sandwich or a stack of fluffy pancakes can be made and it’s no wonder people with busy lifestyles like to eat them any time of day.
It’s a Great Source of Protein
Most breakfast dishes in the United States include some ingredients that are high in protein. Whether it be eggs, meats like bacon or turkey, or you simply enjoy your cereal with milk, you’re getting a good dosage of your recommended daily protein intake.
It Can Give You a Boost of Energy
We know that eating breakfast in the morning can provide us with a boost of energy, so why would that not be the case if you ate it at a different time of the day? Instead of choosing fatty, fried foods for lunch or dinner, choose a healthy breakfast food option instead.
Last, but certainly not least, breakfast is delicious! Why restrict yourself from having some of your favorite foods just because of the numbers on the clock? At Chip’s we serve breakfast all day long so you can satisfy your craving at any time!
