"Life is not merely to be alive;
but to be well." 

~ Marcus Martial ~



The selected Health Tip is summarized below.  An audio clip of the tip as presented by Dr. Leah on the Chat With Women radio show is available at the end of the tip.

 The Importance of Breakfast

"Breakfast is truly the most important meal of the day.  We are "breaking our fast" after we have slept all night. 

Ideally we should eat within the first hour of waking.  This means that we start the day with protein, complex carbs and fats...NOT caffeine and sweets!! 

Eggs make a great source of protein as well as soy, nuts and protein powders.   Whole grain toast with organic peanut butter and jelly and yogurt make a good combination also. 

Take all your vitamins, minerals, fatty acids and other supplements in the morning too.

A good breakfast gets your energy up, makes your adrenals function better and is a great start to your day."
