Breakfast Matters

Breakfast Matters. Period.

From the moment you wake up in the morning, you encounter a dozen opportunities to be mindful and nourish yourself. And it starts with breakfast. It is so easy to feel rushed and live in the mentality that you are too busy to eat a good breakfast. It doesn't matter if you are a busy CEO, a stay-at-home mom, or stressed college student, we are all guilty of skipping this vital meal for one reason or another. Making breakfast a priority sets off a ripple effect of positive choices throughout the rest of your day. 

Quality Matters. I'm not talking about scarfing down a bowl of sugar loaded cereal. Having a nice balance of healthy fats, protein and fiber to fuel your body will do wonders. The blast of nutrients fuels your body to stay energized, satiated throughout the day and promote better brain function = increased productivity! Who doesn't want all that?? 

Here's the best part: It doesn't have to be complicated! There are so many options for quick, make ahead meals that won't cut into your morning routine: green smoothies, chia pudding, overnight oats, egg muffins.

Make breakfast. Because you are worth it.
