Its something we’ve all heard over and over for many years: “Make sure you eat a good, healthy breakfast if you want to perform at your best.” Regardless of what you do – whether you’re an airline pilot, a surgeon or a student of medical assistant training (or perhaps even a medical assistant already working in a doctor’s office or hospital) you’d be well advised to take heed of this time-tested advice. This article, published recently in US News and World Report confirms what we already know. A solid, balanced breakfast plays a major part in keeping your blood sugar well regulated and your mind and body well-fueled throughout the day. This is particularly important in fields such as medical assistant where you’re relied upon by patients to be at the top of your game. So before you head out the door to your medical assisting classes at the Allen School, grab yourself something healthy like a yogurt and a banana, or a piece of whole grain bread with peanut butter and a cup of fresh fruit juice. You’ll be glad you did, and so will the patients to which you administer treatment.
