Well-deserved praise for the mid-day meal

Lunch DilbertThe importance of breakfast certainly cannot be understated. It’s where the day begins and where you body gets the energy it needs to get going strong.

But like any well-oiled machine, your body needs to get oiled up some more as the day goes on.

But rather than let us go on about the importance of lunch during your busy day, we thought we’d share an excerpt about this topic written by the folks over at Livestrong. Check it out below…

As the main daily meal in dozens of countries around the world, lunch holds a place of primary cultural importance. In 9-to-5 environments, the midday meal isn’t always such a big deal, but making time for a healthy lunch can pay off both mentally and physically.

The Benefits
Eating in the middle of the day, several hours after breakfast, re-energizes your body and can raise blood sugar levels when focus and concentration are flagging. If you’re feeling sluggish, eating even a small lunch can renew your energy and help you feel refreshed and ready to take on the next several hours. In addition, eating lunch keeps your metabolism active, especially if you have a moderately sized meal and a snack before and afterward. “Extended periods of starvation between large meals creates gaps which keep metabolism from staying active,” says Dr. Kurt Hong, the Center for Human Nutrition director of Huntington Medical Foundation.
