Wellness Wednesday: Healthy Fall Recipes

Summer vacation is now a memory and the usual fall routine is under way.

For some fall could mean starting a new school year, practicing with a new golf team or training for your career’s biggest championship yet. Fall could mean that the planning for holiday parties begins, charity tournaments are underway and stricter tee times are scheduled. No matter what stage in life you are in, fall is the time of year when the vacationing ends and the busy routines begin.  But just because life gets busier does not mean that you need to neglect your health (i.e. skip breakfast!).

So, to help simplify your life we provided you with an easy, yet healthy, breakfast recipe! You only have to make this recipe once, I recommend on Sunday night, and you can enjoy them every morning with your morning coffee!
