Eating breakfast can have a huge positive impact on your health.

In America, we have a health hype. We want to be healthy, feel healthy and above all, look healthy. Much of what we eat impacts our health and, as strange as it may seem, not eating certain meals can actually lead to a less healthy version of you. 

Research shows that eating breakfast can have a huge positive impact on your health and well-being, including giving you a better memory boost, superior concentration and even lower levels of LDL cholesterol. And while this may not mean that you should eat potatoes, grits and cheesy eggs for every meal of the day, those who consume breakfast are slimmer than those who choose to skip this all-important meal.

If this information hasn't persuaded you to eat breakfast, the below restaurants should. All delicious, all local, here are 15 mighty independent breakfast spots in Peoria, Illinois.
