Benefits of A Plant-Based Brunch & Eating Vegan Early in the Day

The early part of the day can be debated as the most important time of the day to ingest the majority of your energy from food. It’s also important to set your internal clock to be ready to perform and be present. Because of this, it’s important to choose healthy options that allow you to be the best form of you to show up for co-workers, friends and family members.

Setting Yourself up for Success

In today's fast-paced world, many people are constantly hopping from meeting to meeting or from chore to chore during the day and don't have time to sit down and eat a decent meal. In the evening, there's more time for eating, so we not only eat larger meals, but continuous ones. Those who are tired or stressed find that food is an easy way to reward themselves at the end of the day. Therefore, it’s been said that eating breakfast is the most important meal of the day because you will stay full throughout the day. If you skip breakfast or lunch, you will end up eating heavy and usually not the healthiest meals later at night when you are starving.

More and more research is confirming the importance of eating lighter at night and heavier during the day — for health, not just weight. A recent study in Jama confirmed the importance of that approach — calories were the same with both sets of eaters, just distributed differently. Café Gratitude likes to adopt this same thought and healthy way of eating. We place a big emphasis on our healthy brunch menu to make it easy to grab a bite earlier.
