How many of you eat breakfast?  If you do, great!  You are one step closer to a healthy lifestyle.  

If you don’t, did you know that eating breakfast every morning actually means you will eat less throughout the day?

When I am in the office, I eat breakfast every morning (2 chicken sausage patties and some eggs from work), but when I am at home, I struggle to eat anything after I wake up.

I always have coffee in the mornings, so this helps me curb the cravings and food pangs.

But I can tell you from personal experience that when I don’t eat breakfast in the mornings, I make terrible food choices throughout the day.  

Maybe the choices aren’t terrible, but they could always be better. And I need quick and easy meals.

Breakfasts for just one person are even more challenging.  Making muffins is great and all, but eating those for 6-12 days straight doesn’t always work out.
