Breakfast lunch and dinner 

They say breakfast is your most important meal. It’s what’s going to fuel your body of energy to start your day. But with the busy world we live in sometimes it may seem like we don’t have time to make breakfast and sit in traffic to get to the office. But if you can get into the habit of eating breakfast you are less likely to eat a bigger lunch. Try preparing breakfast the night before. Breakfast does not have to be made the day of. If you own a blender you can make an acai bowl the night before and put it in the fridge and take it with you. Feel free to add some berries nuts and fruits on top of the acai for added nutrients.
