Whole Almonds

Nutrition Week: Day 2. Today we are going to focus on lean protein.

Hands down, my favorite meal of the day is breakfast. I am a cerealaholic. I love cereal and I would enjoy eating it for every meal even though I don’t. The problem with cereal is that there are so many horrible options available. Options that include refined grains and loads of sugar. As a college student I am going to make an...
