When it comes to breakfast, there are two adages: that of breakfast being the most important meal of the day, or that one should eat breakfast like a king.

With the early morning commute, however, it is not uncommon for workers and students to miss breakfast. 

Among the obvious downsides to this is how one would feel weak as he or she goes about the day. A grumbling stomach is also a distraction from performing even simple tasks.

But there are more serious consequences from skipping breakfast.

According to health information website WebMD, skipping breakfast can throw off the body's rhythm of fasting and eating. When the body does not get the blood sugar it needs to make muscles and the brain work, one will feel zapped of energy, and will be more likely to overeat later in the day.

Skipping breakfast may also lead one to snack on high-fat, high-sugar food -- which can negatively affect health.

The site adds that breakfast helps burn calories throughout the day. It also aids focus and provides energy to get things done.

Eating breakfast is also linked to good health, "including better memory and concentration," lower levels of bad cholesterol, and lower chances of getting diabetes, heart disease, and being overweight.

Another health information website, MayoClinic, says that eating breakfast leads to reduced hunger, which may make it easier to avoid overeating. 

People who have breakfast also tend to make healthier food choices, it said. 

So how much food should one consume for breakfast?

WebMD recommends even something small within an hour of waking up.

One of the affordable, easy-cook breakfast choices in the market is Argentina corned beef.

It is made with 100% pure beef that is sure to fill one's tummy and delight one's taste buds, especially with its meaty strands.

With Argentina corned beef, a family could get its members' source of energy for the day while not worrying about hurting their budget.
