I hope you've all had a fabulous holiday season. Welcome to 2012. With the new year, comes new opportunities, new ideas, and new challenges. (Both good and bad) May God send his blessing your way as you continue to grow this year.
Speaking of growth, every year people make new years resolutions... I giggled to myself as I went for a walk around Jamaica Pond this morning. It was more crowded than usual... Partly because it is 55 degrees in January... but, I couldn't help but wonder, how many people at the pond were only there because they made a resolution to lose those last pesky few pounds????
I think people put a lot of pressure on themselves to accomplish goals that aren't realistic. Or, they make the mistake of comparing themselves to unrealistic people, ie; celebrities. I mean, If I could have a personal chef who makes cardboard taste like brownies, I'd be thin too!!
Let's look at a simple way to get healthy, together. One word... BREAKFAST. People, would you try and start your car if it had no gas? NO! So why do you try and start your day without breakfast?
Here is a super simple, delicious way to start the day.
Yogurt, granola, and fruit breakfast
What you'll need:
1 tsp Honey
half a Banana
half an apple, diced into small pieces
1/2 cup granola cereal
1 cup plain or vanilla yogurt
Simply layer your mug ( I use a clear mug because it's cute, the better your food looks, the better it tastes! Just saying) with the items listed above, drizzle the honey on top, and enjoy!!
Each spoonful will be filled with healthy goodness.
Starting your day with a healthy breakfast, can help you accomplish whatever resolution you've made for yourself this year. (Unless your resolution is to starve.) Your brain and body need fuel for the day. So get up, have breakfast and power toward the goals you have set for yourself!!!
Hope this recipe finds you well!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!
That's my 2 cents!
