Over Half Of Americans Want ‘Second Breakfast’ To Be Classed As An Official Meal
We thought we were alone in this thinking, but it turns out over 50 per cent of Americans want to make a second breakfast an officially recognised meal.
According to the new research, in a survey of 2000 US respondents, 62 per cent of individuals think it's time second breakfasts were given the recognition they deserve.
Plus, the average American claims they indulge in a second brekkie at least once a week. What a treat!
It sounds like double breakfast eaters are onto something, too, as 70 per cent of respondents say they felt more energised after going back for round two.
Meanwhile, the study - conducted by OnePoll on behalf of Dave's Killer Bread - also discovered that breakfast foods are America's favourite "genre", with 24 per cent going mad for pancakes, eggs and sausages (among other breakfast delicacies) over any other snack.
Unsurprisingly, the 'King of Breakfast Foods' is eggs, with 58 per cent of Americans making it their top pick.
Sausage was the second favourite in the survey, while toast took the third spot.
Oh, and while we're on the topic of breakfast, we've got the perfect option for you to fit into one of your morning meals.
A study by the University of L'Aquila in Italy found that chocolate could actually improve your cognitive ability over the day. Yep, really.
In the review published in Frontiers in Nutrition, authors Valentina Socci and Michele Ferrara tested the affects of the brain a few hours after eating chocolate and the affects after sustaining a cocoa-based diet for a long period of time.
The study found that for women, eating cocoa after a night of chronic sleep deprivation actually counteracted the cognitive impairment, such as less accuracy in performing tasks.
This showed promising results for people that suffer from sleep deprivation or work irregular shift patterns.
Is this our cue to stock up on Nutella for our morning toast?
