Researchers from Harvard University have found that skipping breakfast can increase your risk of a heart attack, high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol and heart disease. So, the next time you’re tempted to hit the road on empty, stop and fuel up first. You really can’t expect your body and mind to function properly from your last meal the night before until lunchtime!
A perfect way to start the day – warming, nourishing and soothing. How about the traditional rice porridge?
