How Eating Breakfast Can Literally Make You Sick

Many nutritionists tell us that breakfast is the most important meal of the day because it kick-starts into our morning.  But, lately, you may be feeling a little sick, or perhaps even a bit depressed after eating that All-American staple of eggs, bacon, toast and coffee.  This may be because -- just since January 2013 -- the cost of that basic meal has risen by 24% overall; with coffee up 72% and bacon 42%.

Simply, you have to ask yourself this: Did I get a 24% raise last year to afford these breakfast increases? Probably not.  And, it isn't just breakfast that has become expensive.  All meals are costing you more.  Because of this,  you and I have less dollars in our pockets for other things and, as a result, overall consumer spending is hurt in the process; just another one of the reasons the economy contracted by 2.9% in the first quarter.
