Back-to-Work Breakfast Bowls

 

The first week of January is in full swing and most of us are back at work, or school. We survived the holidays, balancing our sweets and alcohol intake (hopefully) and maybe even sneaking in a few morning runs. But it’s back to the grind and we all know how hard it can be to set our alarm clocks once again. Waking up before the sun and forcing ourselves to roll out from under the covers never seemed so impossible! Don’t worry though, only 9 more weeks until Day Light Savings…
