We all know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but for many of us at the studio – as we just shared – the morning is often the hardest part of the day so finding time to make a balanced meal sometimes just isn’t an option.

We all want to start our days off right, but once the alarm clock rings (and the snooze button dance begins), it’s hard to find the time to do it all. Can we truly expect ourselves to make it to the gym, meditate, perform our entire beauty regimen (scrubs, serums and all!), read the news, take our vitamins, catch up on our emails, put together our look AND make a balanced meal – all before the work day starts? For those of us who need our sleep, there’s simply no chance!

In an ideal world, we’d be mashing avocados on home-baked bread and topping them with perfectly poached farm-raised eggs, but in real life – a glass of lemon water, a small whole milk cappuccino and a granola bar is my breakfast of champions (GoMacro’s Balanced Goodness Granola + Coconut bars are my personal favorite!).

Sounds healthy enough, right? And that breakfast allows me the time to meditate, which is something I truly need – and far more than avocado toast. So I’ve found that, for me, there are more important things than the most important meal of the day.

What is your typical breakfast? And is it the most important part of your morning routine? Or, like me, do you find that there are other things that are slightly more important?
