September is Better Breakfast Month and to celebrate, we share all sorts of breakfast recipes for you to enjoy. There’s been a lot of talk lately about breakfast, and if it is still the most important meal of the day. The recent study I saw leads me to believe that more research is necessary.
To keep up with the times, I pack my breakfast every day and take a break at about 11 am and eat at that time.
In one of the more comprehensive studies to date, it’s recently been proven that eggs (yolks) are not the best choice for breakfast. In this recent study, it is believed that egg yolks raise cholesterol and increase chances for heart disease. So we’ll limit eggs to one per serving, if-at-all for now. Until the next study.
What to drink for breakfast

Warm Peach Oatmeal Recipe
When the weather gets colder, I crave a warm and hearty breakfast. Hot Oatmeal is very satisfying and it’s certainly not difficult to make. I always make enough for my husband and I and if there are any leftovers, I store them in a mason jar to enjoy the next morning.
To be honest, I wasn’t always a fan of oatmeal. This changed by the time I was an adult, and now I can’t get enough of the stuff! I wouldn’t exactly call this recipe “oatmeal,” since it’s a blend of several grains. That’s why we call this Power Porridge. It’s packed with so many heart-healthy ingredients, and it keeps you full all morning until lunch.
