People always say breakfast is the most important meal of the day, however the key is not WHEN you eat but HOW you eat! When you fuel your body with a balanced meal, you’re also fueling your mind for the day to come, and with the start of a new year we’re thinking this whole healthy living thing may be good to try out.
Now, a healthy diet is certainly a good New Year’s resolution but adopting a balanced approach to eating will help you through the first few tough months and hopefully carry you through your long, long life. The key to eating a balanced lifestyle is fill your diet with real, fresh foods that are a variety of flavors and textures, and yes that does mean sometimes mixing your fruits & veggies with some delicious Sesame Tahini Tea Cookies. They're made with organic and GMO-free ingredients and sweetened with honey! Talk about balance.
This smoothie bowl is made with just 6 clean & simple ingredients to kick start your year with the right healthy eating habits while still enjoying that familiar flavor you love from Marlo’s Bakeshop cookies.
