Make Every Morning Count

One thing I've learned in my "quest" to become healthier is that every single thing you put in your mouth counts. Now, obviously one cheat meal won't be the end of everything, but getting into the habit of even one big cheat meal a week can really derail you... especially if you're like me and your willpower isn't that strong!

I can't eat a big breakfast - it makes me feel sick. So, I'm usually limited to egg whites with some seasoning, but it isn't enough to get me through the day until lunch (with school and work my schedule is tight). When my friend Stacey introduced me to smoothie bowls, I was pumped! So, now, because I'm usually on the go, I drink my breakfast along with my egg whites.
