Why Dinner Is Such An Important Meal

Fitness gurus rave about a hearty lunch. Instagram content creators have us riling up for colorful breakfasts consisting of raspberries, yogurts, oats, granola, and even low-calorie ice cream. (My fancy way of saying we are whipping up frozen banana and mango together to make a creamy bowl).

So where does that leave dinner? Is it still important?

Well, the answer is, it definitely is!

Let’s grab our wallets and run off to the nearest grocery market because tonight we are going to be making a memorable dinner. Dinner is often the last meal of the day unless we are having late-night snacks. Dinners are famous for dates, some alone time, relaxing time periods, and even a hearty pizza night. However, lately, dinners have been getting a little neglected. The late obsession with fitness and dieting has caused a frenzy that created a misconception that dinner is “fattening”. That it can cause weight gain and lead to a little pudge tummy.

It’s about time we break some of these myths and focus on how important dinners are.

Dinners Are A Great Source Of Energy

We all need energy. We burn energy throughout the day and we are bound to be hungry by dinner time. Dinner is great for supplying us with the nutrients and the energy we need for the coming day. It can prepare us for an improved quality of sleep and ensure we have all the nutrients that we need. Sometimes it is hard to include all of the adequate numbers of vegetables and fruits during day time. Most of us are either too busy working or studying to whip up an actual full balanced meal encompassing seafood, meat, all the sweetness of fruits, and more.

Dinners Prevent Binge-eating (And Other Unhealthy Eating Habits)

When we eat dinner, it is usually indicated that it is the last meal of the day. The last meal keeps us filled and sufficient for the rest of the night. This means that we can sleep for a longer period of time without having to wake up because of hunger or overeating late at night because we are so starved. This is also one of the reasons why dinner is great at helping our weight loss journey. A well-balanced meal during dinner time can keep us filled and prevent us from consuming an excess of calories.

Dinners Are Great To Foster Love And Relationships

Dinner not only serves a well being and health function but it also plays a role in the social function of human life. Dinner is when we get together with our family. Dinner is when couples join to talk about their day. Dinner is the time everyone in the household joins for a warm meal. This gives an opportunity for people to talk and spread feelings of love. What better love language is out there than food? Food brings us together in so many ways and can put an instant smile on us. We love dinner because it tastes good but more importantly, it brings us closer to our loved ones.
