"I totally abide by the cliche that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. When I actually take the time to fully enjoy it, it's my favorite part of the day. I'll go for weeks eating the same thing that seems to switch as the seasons do. I just switched from oatmeal to muesli with fresh fruit, honey and greek yogurt. Summers I often turn to fresh smoothies. But a good piece of toast and a fried egg never fails me. Regardless, when I make a point to enjoy a bit of quiet time in the morning, I feel happier, more clear-minded and calm over the course of my day."
