Healthy habits should be very easy to execute but then life happens.You always start your day with good intentions.
You get out of bed and decide today is the day you start eating healthier. You already made plans to do a 30 minute workout and make a yummy green smoothie. But you look at the time and it’s already 6:30am.
The time went by so fast while you were making breakfast for your family and getting ready for work.
You tell yourself that you will just order in a healthy meal during lunch break but your day gets filled up with meetings and client work and you forget to eat. At this point, anything will do. Even a doughnut.

If someone told me years back that I’ll be able to stop eating hot dog every day, I would probably have looked at that person and laughed. Seriously I was a junk food addict.

Another amazing reason why you shouldn’t skip your morning meal is that you won’t end up hungry all the time throughout the entire day.
Take out some time in the morning to eat before heading out to tackle … Read more
