Quick Question: Did you eat breakfast this morning?
Of all the meals we eat, breakfast gets the least respect.
Here’s what I’m talking about:
1 - Breakfast is the most skipped meal. As many as 25% of us skip it every day!
2 - It’s often an afterthought – or even a problem! Because … hmmm.... I'm too busy comes to mind.

What did YOU have for breakfast this morning!?
So, if you are eating it, make breakfast easy and nutritious with some simple options:
1. 2 hard boiled eggs and and apple
2. 1 cup of grapes and 1 cup of greek yogurt
3. 3/4 cup of Honey Nut O's and 1.5 oz of beef jerky
4. 1 oz of cheese plus 2 oz of meat on a sammich! (who says you have to eat that for lunch??)
These are all well balanced, with all three macronutrients: Carbs, Protein, and Fat
I hope you enjoy!
ps I ate 1 cup of Greek yogurt and a cup of cherries.
