I mentioned on my FB page earlier about a conversation I overheard at school this morning:
The mere fact that people reference the term “you are what you eat…” then think that eating one apple, an iceberg lettuce salad, consume three-times the daily amount of whole wheat bread because it’s “healthier” than white bread doesn’t really add up.

Our bodies burn through the sugar quickly and the dairy can actually cause adverse affects making us sluggish and tired.

I detest eggs – but they’re a great option for many people:
This should help give more options and realize that coffee and toast aren’t the only quick morning meals.
