Breakfast Recipes and Syrups

Your breakfast of choice can definitely affect your mood and productivity levels, so eating a well-balanced breakfast that can make you happy will provide greater health benefits for the day ahead.

“Your morning sets up the success of your day. So many people wake up and immediately check text messages, emails, and social media. I use my first hour awake for my morning routine of breakfast and meditation to prepare myself.”– Caroline Ghosn

By eating a healthy breakfast in a positive way, we’re sending a message to ourselves that we respect our bodies, want to take care of our health and wellbeing, and that we deserve to enjoy a good life.
