Nutrition: Hot Cereals for a Hot Body

"Breakfast is the most important meal of the day" health experts, including myself, often say. I love breakfast for both it's metabolism boosting power and the flavor too!

Yogurt, fruit, wheat toast with peanut butter, cottage cheese, and cold cereal with berries are some of the items on my breakfast list. However, I usually(especially during competition season) eat egg whites and hot cereal with some Truvia/Stevia. Check out the differences in the starches/carbs that I eat in the morning to fuel my day.
