This week we'll continue with all the good adds and still try to stay off the processed/take out foods...OK, yes, go ahead and have pizza night, but easy on the pepperoni. All good things, but why not take it one step further? Breakfast! I've talked about breakfast before and offered a few tasty ideas, but here are some more reasons to nosh bright and early:

Research studies tell us that people who eat breakfast are more likely to maintain a healthy weight.

Other studies have even linked healthy breakfasts with less chronic disease, increased longevity and better health.
By recharging your brain and your body, you'll be more efficient in just about everything you do.
Kids need to eat breakfast. You'll set the example by doing it yourself.
Breakfast really can be as simple as a bowl of raisin bran with reduced fat milk, or even grab a yogurt and toast. Just eat something, that is not a toaster strudel!
