Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It recharges and revitalizes you after the long break and gives you the energy and nutrients you need to start your day. It’s also important that you eat healthy and fresh instead of fast foods for a healthy immune system. However, if you are like most people, you don’t have enough time to prepare a decent meal, especially when you’re in a hurry.
