    Quick Breakfast for Kids on the Go

    Breakfast time is difficult for many people. Just getting up and getting yourself ready for work while maintaining a healthy lifestyle is hard enough, let alone seeing to it your kids eat a healthy breakfast every day. But what you eat first thing in the morning is essential for setting up a good day.

    What is the Best Diet for You?

    Sometimes it’s hard to decide on a diet. There’s the Paleolithic diet. The no-carb diet. The protein-only diet. So many options…how do you choose? Well, the great thing is you don’t have to choose. You can nitpick from all the ones you like, do research, and create your own diet.

    Healthy Snacks (That Also Taste Good)

    Healthy snacks can seem hard to come by. We have all been there: you are in between meals, you are craving a snack, and the junk food in the pantry starts to look really, really good. After all, what difference will a few potato chips make, in the grand scheme of things? You grab the bag and take it with you. Honestly, the idea of portion size does not make any sense whatsoever when you are hungry.

    Healthy Smoothie Ideas for a Healthy Year

    Smoothies are a great way to get the nutrients you need without compromising taste. Before the gym, as a meal replacement, or just as a snack time treat, shakes pack all the punch and deliver the great taste of fruits like strawberries and vanilla, and oatmeal or peanut butter.

    Granola Bar Recipes

    Granola bars are the perfect snack, breakfast, or go-to treat to have on hand. Unfortunately, a lot of granola bars that are sold in stores have high sugar content and a lot of unknown ingredients that are not healthy for you. Rather than purchasing the store-brought granola bars, you can make them your own and choose the different ingredients to add in.

    New Year, New Leaf: 25 Healthy Habits for 2018

    We all have that list. The one we keep underneath piles of paper in the dusty bottom drawer, and we come across every so often when spring cleaning comes around. It is our collection of hopes, our dreams for ourselves, that seem within reach but fall back every year, a few inches here, a few inches there, in the midst of life, work, and everyday obligations. Pretty soon the items on the list become like midnight stars; remembered and admired but too distant to have any real involvement in our lives and the list, like the stars, is cast aside in time for the new day and bigger suns.

    Avocado & Fried Egg Toast Recipe

    Breakfast: it’s the most important meal of the day. It jump-starts your digestive tract, waking up your metabolism and giving your body the energy it needs to make it through the day (until lunch, at least!) But let’s be honest, it can be tough to get up in time to throw together a good breakfast before getting out the door. Cereal and milk are easy, but not the most nutritional choice, and fancy omelets require too much time and effort.
