Least Important Meal Of the Day?

By November 13, 2012

Follow me on:

confused man with muffin and coffeeA couple of weeks ago, Cindy Nellis, our awesome Guide to Women's Fashion at About.com said something that made me giggle:

"Y'know, you never really hear much about which one is the least important meal of the day..."

But then I thought about it -- and it's true! We're constantly told that breakfast is the most important meal of the day - and it probably is because it sets the tone for your day, as far as eating goes. But... if breakfast is the most important meal of the day, which one is the least important? Maybe lunch -- it's easy to ignore, especially if you have a mid-morning snack. However, it may be good because it gives you a break from work unless you work at your laptop that's on your kitchen table - (what, who me??). I'd say dinner is important because studies indicate eating dinner together as a family is good for everyone, including the kids. But, if you live alone or work at night, then dinner may not be a big deal.

Tell me what you think is the least important meal of your day, and leave a comment to tell me why...
