"When you wake up in the morning, your body has just gone through a 7 to 9 hour fast. It's running low on liver glycogen to supply the brain with energy, and chances are it's been breaking down your muscle in order to supplement the dwindling supplies. If you ignore breakfast, your body continues to break down your muscle just to supply its most important organ with energy!
Skipping breakfast, or equally bad devouring a muffin with your dark roast coffee as you frantically drive to work, makes muscle building a disaster.
Keep it simple. If you have the time, fix a vegetable omelet or eat some lean protein source. Leftovers work well too if they have lean protein and slow-digesting carbs. You can also make some hard-boiled eggs the night before and eat them with some sliced turkey and some berries or an apple.
Are even these options out of your time range? One of the best solutions is making a protein smoothie for a perfect breakfast. Throw a few scoops of protein powder in the blender (about 30 grams) with some coconut milk, a cup of berries (fresh or frozen), flax or chia seeds, and maybe a little almond butter. The whole thing takes 5 minutes but keeps you full and satisfied for hours, making you less likely to make a bad choice when your co-worker brings in the donuts mid-morning."
