SEE Tip: Fuel up with Breakfast!


SEE Tip:  Start your day with a full tank-- eat breakfast!  Sure, having a cup of coffee may give you a jolt, but if you want lasting energy, take a minute for breakfast.  For the best results, try a breakfast with protein, healthy fats, and complex carbs-- something like whole wheat toast with a thin layer of peanut butter (or the nut butter of your choice) and sliced banana- yum!!  It doesn't take long to prepare and will keep you energized and full much longer than skipping breakfast or trying to subsist on coffee alone.

Get started with the PEEPs today for a healthy breakfast on the go.  Find them in Mattin Courtyard from 8am-10am (or until supplies run out)!

HKB Myth busting: If a smoker quits tobacco, are they inevitably going to gain weight?  Truth: Not necessarily.  While a former smoker may have a normalized appetite and metablism to re-adjust to, and a better ability to taste and smell food, that doesn't mean the person is guaranteed to gain weight.  The person has it within their control to choose wisely in regards to their meals and snacks, as well as, include exercise in their day- things that can help regulate their weight.
