You will wake up much less grumpy in the morning because your blood sugar will not be so low. Then eat some healthy protein for breakfast.. (continued)

More Information:

I used to be the world's worst morning grump, but since I started doing this, everyone (my husband, my coworkers) all noticed my improved mood. I was known as the person not to approach with any problem before 11 am. Now, I'm raring to go within a half hour of eating breakfast.
