First things first....Breakfast

'A refrigerator full of fresh fruits and vegetables in a rainbow of colors is like the optimal building materials for a house.' Tosca Reno - B Sc., B ED.

The most important meal of the day is breakfast, and yet I bet, many of you skip it. Wrong! Skipping breakfast is like not putting gas in your car before a long road trip. How far can you go on an empty tank? You might get away with it for awhile, but you cannot outsmart your body for long. You end up, out of gas...sick, or struggling with energy levels. If you don't provide your body with the nutrients it needs, it doesn't forget. It robs your bones, and muscles for them. After going 10 hours or so with no food, breakfast can set your standard for the day...and that doesn't mean stopping for an Egg McMuffin on the way to work, or grabbing one of the sticky pastries in the staff room. Let's try these instead!

Option 1 - 1 cup Oatmeal with 1/2 cup fresh berries + 4 egg whites, cooked. (Add a piece of dry multi-grain toast if you are still hungry w/ 1 tsp nut butter + 16 oz water or black tea or coffee.

Option 2 - Whole grain cereal w/ low fat milk, soymilk. Sprinkle with 1 Tbsp each Flaxseed, bee pollen, and wheat germ. Add 1/2 sliced banana. + 3-5 boiled egg whites. 16 oz water or black tea or coffee.

Option 3 - Clean Eating Oatmeal w/ Cinnamon Almonds & Apple. (See recipe)
3-5 scrambled egg whites, 16 oz water, black tea or coffe.
