Quality Over Quantity Rules the Most Important Meal of the Day

Dallas Courier, DFW Deliveries

Quality over quantity. That’s what you’ve always heard. When it comes to DFW deliveries, it’s the truth, too! Sure, you can find any old provider to handle your time and temperature sensitive deliveries, but, as our Dallas Courier team has always said, you get what you pay for.

 

While you might be able to pack in more deliveries, or save a few extra dollars on your invoices, the truth is, you’ll end up paying a whole lot more to fix a poorly executed delivery. When you are blinded by the “quantity”, you often miss out on the quality.

 

Thankfully, you have a DFW courier who offers quality service at fair prices, as well as a variety of services. Quality and quantity in one uniformed team.

 

Another frequently heard phrase is that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Scientists and nutritionists agree that breakfast is an essential meal to kick start your metabolism, keep blood sugars stable, and stay productive on the job by mid-day. But, as with your DFW deliveries, and the repeated phrase- quality matters more than quantity.

 

What you eat to start your day has a major impact on how the rest of the day goes. Here are the details:

 

Eat Breakfast Every Day

We’ll reiterate. Breakfast is important. Wake up and eat. Just do it. Evidence suggests that eating breakfast leads to overall health benefits, a lower BMI (Body Mass Index), and more calories burned throughout the day. Eating breakfast is actually linked to weight loss. Go figure?

 

What Not to Eat

But like we said, quality is important here, as well. If you’re looking to maximize the benefits of breakfast, consider a few of the most common breakfast foods “off limits”. Sugary cereals, prepackaged foods, and juice are loaded with added sugars and nutritionally lacking. As a general rule, make sure your favorite breakfast foods have single digit sugar counts. That leaves out many of these:

 

  • Instant oatmeal
  • Breakfast bars
  • Granola
  • Smoothies
  • Bagels

 

What to Eat

It’s not all bad, though. Yes, you have to stay clear of some of your most beloved “breakfast foods”, but, remember, we’re going for quality here! Breakfast should be a combination of lean protein and complex carbohydrates.

 

The lean protein is essential because it will keep you fuller for longer, reducing your desire to snack at your desk before lunch. People typically reserve protein for later in the day, when your body can’t do much with it. In contrast, consuming protein early in the day jump starts your body’s ability to utilize this nutrient, which leads to building and maintaining muscle. Great sources of lean protein for breakfast include:

 

  • Eggs
  • Greek yogurt
  • Skim milk
  • Nut butter
  • Tofu

 

Complex carbohydrates should also be consumed at breakfast. These carbs have more nutrients than simple carbohydrates. They’re higher in fiber, and therefore take longer to digest. This also keeps you fuller for longer. They can help manage blood sugar, too, preventing that “hangry” pre-lunch feeling. Examples of quality complex carbs include:

 

  • Whole grain toast
  • Quinoa
  • Steel cut oats
  • Beans

 

There’s Power in Produce

Vegetables and fruits count as complex carbohydrates, too, but they’re so important, they get their own heading! Experts recommend five to nine servings of fruits and veggies a day. Good luck getting that in just two meals! Give yourself a jump start by adding fruits and vegetables into your breakfast. Fiber-rich varieties like spinach, apples, broccoli, berries, and bananas are powerful produce to boost the quality of your breakfast.

 

 

Quality over quantity- it’s a concept that transcends food and also applies to your DFW deliveries. Favoring quantity over quality can lead to devastating results like late deliveries, loss of cargo, or, as with healthcare deliveries, even a loss of life.
