Quote of the Day
Today, September 26th has two specific days related to breakfast....National Better Breakfast Day and National Pancake Day!
Coffee is one of the most popular drinks to have with Breakfast! Coffee is actually the most popular drink in the world! It just seems like a great way to start the day. Not only is it addictive, but the caffeine helps wake you up. Mornings are definitely Coffee Time!
I'm not a consistent coffee drinker, mainly because I don't always have cream on hand for it, but I do find that I am a lot more productive when I start my day off with a cup of coffee along with breakfast!
Kerry has some great pages on her Healthy Diet Habits website with some information about breakfast and some great breakfast recipes. Check them out!

Kerry's Healthy Fall Snacks list is one that is in keeping with the seasons. Buying seasonal food is cheaper, and a better deal. There are many processed snack treats to purchase, but most are full of ingredients that are not real foods.
Kerry's list uses real foods that might need preparation, but promote healthy eating habits. Don’t just give into your hankering for processed treats that fill every aisle at this time of the year, but fill up on these healthier choices!
