First thing: Drink a glass of room temperature or warm water mixed with lemon slices and the juice of ½ - 1 lemon then wait 15-30 minutes before eating breakfast.  Lemons are packed with vitamin C (boosts the immune system) and potassium (necessary for heart health and brain function).  Lemon water also helps freshen breath, loosen phlegm and cleanses the liver.


Having a cupcake pan full of eggy breakfast cups is one way to jump start the day.  Get the kids involved: Let them choose and assemble the ingredients they want in their morning breakfast cup, then watch them devour their creation.
