Rushing out the door every morning is supposedly bad for your health, but how many of us are guilty of hitting the snooze alarm a dozen times and then rushing to get dressed and ourselves and our kids to school on time…forget breakfast…

Even the lines at McDonalds and Starbucks will take thirty minutes and offer no help…

Yet you need the energy to function and appear halfway coherent…

I’ve started keeping snacks like this in my fridge so that I always can grab a bite before heading out the door…
