With all of our morning responsibilities it can be tricky fitting breakfast into our schedule. Well, this popular phrase isn’t any mumbo jumbo. The word “breakfast” literally means to break the fast between dinner and the meal eaten after a person wakes up the next morning.  If you think about the amount of time from dinner to breakfast that’s a lot of hours.  For most people, it can be up to 12 hours since their last meal, and yet they are quick to skip it as they rush out the door.
