Morning Glory Muffin and Fruit Jars (Gluten, Dairy, Egg, Nut, Soy-free) #WRALSmartShopper

“When you wake up in the morning, Pooh," said Piglet at last, "what's the first thing you say to yourself?"  "What's for breakfast?" said Pooh. "What do you say, Piglet?  "I say, I wonder what's going to happen exciting today?" said Piglet.  Pooh nodded thoughtfully. "It's the same thing," he said.  ~A.A. Milne

If you haven't noticed, I, like Pooh, get very excited about food... especially breakfast.  But just like any relationship, the way we look at our food and how we eat it, has to be nurtured and respected in order to make it work.  There were times where I'd be in such a rush, I'd make unhealthy choices, like grabbing a super-sized bagel, slathered with cream cheese.  Or end up making my way through the fast food drive-thru, answering, "well, sure, I'd like hash browns and a diet coke with that." And there were some days when I skipped it altogether.  And I ended up not only feeling less productive in the morning, but I then ate even more than I typically would throughout the rest of the day, because I was suddenly "starving."  

Low energy and feeling hungry are not a good recipe for success...
