They say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and I can’t help but agree!

Not only does it set the tone for your whole day from the get-go, I always find that cooking myself a simple breakfast wakes me up and gets me in gear to face the day.

The right breakfast can make all the difference. If I know that I’m going to have a stressful day full of meetings, for example, I might whip up a batch of these maple-glazed waffles as a special treat.

And if I need to hit the ground running first thing in the morning, I’ll always go for a healthy, nutrient-dense recipe that will help me stay clear-headed and on top of things all day long!

If that’s the kind of day you find yourself facing, well, all the time, then this is the perfect moment to get acquainted with a tasty, vitamin-packed breakfast that will stick to your ribs.
