Fall always means back to school, back to routine, and back to faster pace mornings after the laid back vibe of summer. For some, this can mean rushing around and skipping breakfast – which is never fun. Breakfast provides energy, helps balance our blood sugar, and gives protein and fat for optimal brain function.
