How you start your day can set the tone for what follows. Too many of us consume foods high in sugar and starch and low in nutrients in the morning and then wonder why we lack energy and feel sluggish all day.

As an added benefit, starting with precooked starches cuts down on cooking time helping to get your food on the table quicker!!
