Several years ago, I adopted a simple morning ritual that is so valuable to me that I try to do it every single day (even when traveling)! I know from personal experience that adopting this daily habit has helped me stay lean, improve my immune system and reduce junk food cravings. Once upon a time, I had cravings for sugary foods like granola bars or muffins as soon as I got up in the morning, but those cravings vanished after I began this habit. Now I crave whole and satisfying foods instead. Starting my day with a healthy action sets me up for success for the rest of the day and is a reminder that my health comes first.
