The Secret Food That All These Successful People Are Eating For Breakfast

They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day. And it is! Breakfast helps kick-start a lot of things early in the day: your metabolism and your energy, first and foremost.

In fact, many studies suggest that a good and healthy breakfast makes for good health, better memory and concentration, and higher energy throughout the day. It even makes you live longer because it lowers bad cholesterol, and lowers your chance of getting diabetes and heart disease.

So we’ve looked at what successful and influential people are eating for breakfast, and found that there’s one thing in common in their varied breakfast staples—egg. Whether it’s poached egg, scrambled eggs, or pure egg whites, these successful people have embraced and mastered the art of everyday eggs.

Many nutritionists and studies recommend to eat one egg to start your day because it’s packed with vitamins and nutrients. To understand it better, imagine that one large egg is packed with so many nutrients that is enough to turn a single cell into a baby chicken. So that includes a nice helping of Vitamins A, B5, B12, B2, Calcium, and Folate.

Eggs also contain more than 100 mg of Choline, a very important nutrient that most people don’t really get enough of. Choline is a macronutrient that is important for brain development, nerve function, muscle movement, and even supports energy levels and a healthy metabolism so it can aid you in staying energetic throughout the day.

So what does an egg-boosted breakfast look like for the 3rd wealthiest person on the earth, the most influential woman, and the most beautiful woman (in our opinion)?

American business magnate, investor, and philanthropist, and the 3rd wealthiest man in the world doesn’t have time to whip up his own breakfast so he relies to a certain fast food chain to get his morning boost of energy. Warren Buffet said that for the past 54 years, every morning, he never spends more than $3.17 for either a bacon, egg, and cheese biscuit sandwich or a sausage, egg, and cheese sandwich.

The first multi-billionaire black person and the greatest black woman in decades swears on an easy and nutrition-filled breakfast to start her day. In an interview with People, Oprah said, “I do an egg, toast, because I love bread, and maybe an eighth of an avocado. Instead of coffee, chai tea.”

When you have a whole packed day ahead of you, you gotta stay on top of your breakfast game. Diet is no excuse to skip any meals so Queen Bey opts for a low-carb option every morning to get all the energy she needs to take care of her kids and her career without it adding on her waist. Beyoncé tells Shape, “I always have breakfast—say, scrambled egg whites, a vegetable smoothie, or whole-grain cereal with lowfat milk.”


Arianna Huffington

At age 67, the co-founder and editor-in-chief of The Huffington Post is not ready to slow day. And a day of a media person is never easy. It’s always filled with deadlines, deadlines, and more deadlines! To cope up, Arianna says she starts her day with a good dose of vitamins and her favorite pick-me-upper: fruit, poached eggs, and two hot cups of Bulletproof coffee.


Emma Watson

For us, Emma Watson is simply the most beautiful, smart, and kind woman on the planet. If you don’t agree, well, you’re entitled to your own opinion. But what we can probably agree on is that her go-to breakfast, which she whips up herself, will give any fast food chain a run for their money. In an interview with Marie Claire, Emma says, “I make a really amazing egg tortilla in the morning. It’s my special thing. I make guacamole, salsa, and scrambled eggs, and then I cook the tortilla. It’s pretty simple, really, but yummy.”


Justin Timberlake

Justin Timberlake is like us in so many ways. For one, he eats two breakfasts. That is so us! In an interview with Bon Appetit, Justin reveals that the first thing he eats when he wakes up are waffles with flax and almond butter, and a scrambled egg. He then works out and eats another egg or a protein shake after. Talk about liking eggs!


Winston Churchill


A big breakfast for a big day and a very big personality like Winston Churchill. According to a report by Telegraph, Britain’s beloved prime minister always had two trays of breakfast served to him to start his day. On the first tray, you will find poached eggs, toast, jam, butter, coffee, milk, and cold chicken or other meats. On the second tray, he will have a grapefruit, sugar bowl, glass of orange squash, and a whisky soda. He will then top it off with his morning cigar. Like a gentleman, of course.
