Breakfast: one of the most important meals of the day, but for many, it’s usually coffee that is the “meal” of choice.   

According to a recent survey, 31 million people skip breakfast every morning.

But there are certain foods you can pack and take to work that help you stay energized throughout the day.

One registered dietitian recommends an oatmeal medley, which includes oatmeal, milk and chia seeds. Eating that with a side of Greek yogurt and berries should tide you over until lunch.

As for lunch, it's all about the pack and prep in advance. Pick a protein, veggies, fruit, Greek yogurt and whole wheat crackers  

As for the afternoon snack, skip the candy bar and pick a protein and produce to keep the energy up.
