September 2013 - Better Breakfast Month

September has been designated as Better Breakfast Month and, for the past couple years, I've commemorated it by attempting to eat healthier breakfasts during the month.

In September of 2011, I was just starting a new healthy way of eating. Last September, I was nearly a year into trying a vegan diet, but still needing a little jump start in some areas. 

I'm glad September is almost here, because I think Better Breakfast Month is just what I need to get things going in the right direction again. 

I've always believed that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. I feel better when I eat a healthy breakfast. I get more accomplished in the morning and I have more energy throughout the day. Yet, so often I grab something in the junk food category first thing in the morning or eat nothing at all. 

I'm joining my friends at Knoxville's WTNZ Fox43 to share a bit more about Better Breakfast Month, as well as some better breakfast options that might inspire you. I'll post the video as soon as it's live. Here's a link to a past breakfast post about how to make oatmeal taste better

During the month of September, I hope you'll join me in eating better breakfasts! Tweet or Instagram photos of your breakfast using the hashtag #BetterBfastMonth. You can also upload photos of your better breakfasts to Pinterest and tag them with the hashtag #BetterBfastMonth and I'll add them to my Pinterest board! If we all encourage each other, we can do this!
