Busy lifestyles have recently caused breakfast to become more of an afterthought than a priority. Does grabbing a banana while heading out the door sound all too familiar? As much as we would love to sit down to an omelet and cappuccino before work, most of us don’t have the time to get our healthy eating on.

Nutritionists and doctors have long emphasized the benefits of a low-fat diet, but not all fats are bad for your health! More than just the amount of fat, the types of fat that one consumes is what really matters. There are “good” fats, such as Omega-3 fatty acids which play a crucial role in cognitive function, as well as normal growth and development. Omega-3 fats aid in the prevention of heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, inflammatory diseases and cancer.

Health and healthy are words you hear daily. Many people will think of “fitspiration” and thin men and woman as being the picture of health. I disagree with the notion that healthy is synonymous with being thin. Health should be individualized and encompass balance of mental and physical health.
