Good dietary habits and leading an apt lifestyle seem to be ‘thing of the past’. Breakfast is the first meal of the day. But nowadays, many people skip it — some due to hectic schedule or dietary fads. But not having anything in the morning has consistently being linked to health risks as it can invite high blood pressure, obesity and leaves your metabolism sluggish.
