The idea of “breakfast for dinner” is not new—in fact, people have been eating all sorts of foods all throughout the day forever to feed their hunger. But in a world where you have access to all the foods, all the time, should you really be eating breakfast all day?
Absolutely—if you make the right choices. When you visit a diner in New Jersey, you are faced with all sorts of decisions for your meal, and your health. You can get anything from a fresh, healthy salad to a gooey, indulgent dessert. All of these things are good choices, depending on the context, but breakfast has some particular benefits. Here are our favorites:
- Breakfast can be a good source of protein. Eggs are loaded with protein while being low in fat and calories, making them a great food all day. While the traditional breakfast meats of ham, bacon, and sausage might not be the leanest choices, they are a favorite of many diners and are a healthy part of any diet when included in moderation.
- Breakfast is often easy to digest. Whether you are enjoying an omelette, pancakes, or a breakfast sandwich, breakfast food is usually easy on your stomach, making it a good choice for a sensitive stomach.
- Potatoes are packed with potassium. Hate bananas? The good old spud has you covered! Our home fries and hash browns deliver a surprising punch of this often-overlooked vitamin.
- Sneak in fruits and veggies! It’s so easy to add some fruit to your French toast or waffles, and what sort of omelette is without some peppers, broccoli, or spinach?
