Week 1 of #2013alive focuses on eating breakfast every day. Tell us how youre going to do it!
Welcome to week 1 of our 12 Months of Wellness!
This week is all about eating a balanced breakfast—every day. And we “alive-ers” are no exception. My personal challenge for the week won’t be about just eating breakfast, but eating a balanced breakfast, not just the typical cereal and milk I wolf down before running out the door. One recipe I can’t wait to try is the Bircher Chai Muesli with Maple Pecan Topping. All I have to do is soak the oat mixture overnight so the work in the morning is minimal—definitely my kind of recipe!

Matthew Kadey, registered dietician, reminds us to avoid breakfasts that are too heavy on carbs, and instead focus on balanced breakfasts that contain:
- protein (for example, Greek yogourt, eggs)
- carbohydrates (for example, fruits, oats)
- healthy fats (for example, nuts, nut butter)
