Recipe of the Day or a Healthy Diet Habit Tip of the Day
The month of September is National Breakfast Month!
Having a collection of great breakfast recipes is a healthy diet habit that can help you start your day with a health, rather than grabbing a caloric diet bomb from your local coffee shop. Breakfast fuels your metabolism and is the most important meal of the day. Yet many of you skip it, because of lack of hunger, feeling sick, bloated, or lacking the time to fix a meal.
The typical breakfast choices of juice, bagels, sweetened cereals, donuts, muffins, or your usual high carbohydrate choice, can leave you feeling sluggish, shaky, irritable, and unable to concentrate.
