While it may still be August and in my mind summer just began, all over the country kids are already heading back to school! While a balanced breakfast is important for all children and adults, it’s even more essential that student-athletes are fitting in this important meal before they head to use their brains for most of the day.

I know to all of my dedicated readers that it may seem like I’ve been loungin’ around as I slack on blog posts this summer, but I promise that is not the case! I have had some summer fun, but have also been workin’ hard on projects with some fun new clients and written some articles, too. While I have a bunch of great posts that are coming soon, I thought I would update you with some of my recent media and work that can keep you up-to-date on the latest in nutrition trends and sports nutrition!

Remember that time I was recapping my Italy trip from January? I didn’t forget our last stop! Better late than never to share my experiences, right? Especially in a way that I think it can help others have a better initial impression of this city. Rome was the last city on our trip.

Toast is quick, fits in anytime of day, and is super versatile. Breakfast, snack, lunch, or dinner, sometimes it just hits the spot! With the fabulous #ToastTuesday trend I thought I’d share some of my favorite ways to enjoy it, along with when you might want to enjoy each combo. The “trend” obviously isn’t the old boring toast you’re used to. Warmed fluffy (mostly) sprouted grain bread with a slight crisp and delicious toppings may be a better description of what I’m sharing today (along with creative recipe ideas from some other dietitians and healthy food bloggers). If you’re thinking “sprouted whaaaat?”, have no idea what kind of bread to buy, or still think “carbs are bad“, check out this post on how to choose nutritious bread. And no whining if you’re gluten-free! I have a whole category for you at the bottom!
