Your mother wasn't wrong. Breakfast really is the most important meal of the day! With breakfast, we get our metabolisms going and set the foundation for what and how we eat the rest of the day. Skip it, and we're prone to blood sugar crashes and poor meal choices. Tight schedules and busy mornings make convenience foods appealing, but if you think ahead just a bit, you can make your own grab-and-go breakfast. Planning is the key to healthy, sustainable eating, the secret defense against all things processed and packaged. Here's one of our favorite recipes for starting the day off right--homemade granola. Just pair with plain yogurt and seasonal fruit, and your day's off to a bright start!
