Banana and Peanut Butter Muffins
Posted by Supper Club Monday, 25th January 2016
From a young age you may have been told that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It gives you all of the essential nutrients and energy that you need to get you through the day, getting your metabolism working and ensuring that you can stay focussed on your lessons or your day at work.
Despite this, research suggests that around 45% of people either skip breakfast or have something to eat in the middle of the morning once they arrive at work or when they get a brief break from school lessons. 58% said that it’s as simple as they just can’t face eating early in the morning.
One of the main reasons why people choose to skip breakfast is down to their hectic schedule. Some like to go to the gym before work, others have to get the kids ready for school and that means they have barely enough time to get themselves ready for work as it is. Throw in the school run itself and the traffic on the morning commute and it’s easy to see why so many don’t eat breakfast before heading out.
It has been proven that those who do skip breakfast are often left feeling run-down and without energy, unhappy and struggling to concentrate. If this sounds like you then what better time than National Breakfast Week, when you may already be attempting to achieve a healthier lifestyle shortly after the New Year, to start sitting down and eating before you leave the house.
National Breakfast Week runs from Sunday 24th January until Saturday 30th January, so if you fancy giving it a try then we’ve got a great recipe that you can make and then save and enjoy throughout the week – and it’s pretty healthy too with just 184 calories per portion.
