On another morning, I add chicken and acorn squash. Your body needs good food all the time, and it doesn't really care about the culturally learnt patterns of cereal and toast for breakfast. Or bagels, croissants and orange juice. All these things are so high in carbohydrates (simply too much sugar) that you spike your insulin levels too much. In about an hour you will come down crashing, feeling tired and drained. Then you go get some more coffee and maybe a muffin or cookie with that. You put more high carbohydrates (sugars) in your body that again, you will come down later with this same yoyo effect.
The opposite is when you eat a low carbohydrate meal, or you can also say low sugar, also called low glycemic index meal.
To use another term: Balance = Happiness
