Since Football season is coming here is what Andrew Luck, Colts Quarterback, had to say about breakfast. "To me, breakfast is my most important meal. It's often the meal you play a game on. I make sure I have oatmeal, milk, and fruit. It's the fuel you use to hopefully do your best, so eating right is a big part of being a professional athlete. I wish I paid more attention to it earlier in my life."

Fresh Black Bean Salad

This Fresh Black Bean Salad from Cookie & Kate is perfect for a meal, side or parties! "Like all of my other bean salads, this recipe is great to keep in the fridge on busy weeks. You can enjoy it as is, or serve it on fresh greens (perhaps with an extra spritz of lime juice for dressing; feta/avocado/crumbled tortilla chips would be great on top). You can pile it onto cheese nachos to make them more redeeming, or use it as a filling for burritos or quesadillas (just leave as much of the liquid behind in the bowl as possible)" - Cookie & Kate

Acai Berry Smoothie Bowl Buckwheat Groats Cereal Raw Vegan Recipe

This Acai Berry Smoothie Bowl Buckwheat Groats Cereal Raw Vegan Recipe by Raw Manda is delicious and will give you just the boost you need to kick off your day! "I’ve recently discovered Emmy’s Organics, an environmentally conscience company that creates a wonderful line of raw, vegan, organic, gluten-free and gmo-free food products. Emmy’s Organics is a sustainable business that supports organic and non-gmo farming. It’s reassuring to know that the products I share with my followers on social media and on my blog come from companies that not only create nutritious foods but are also socially responsible. I enjoyed Emmy’s Organics Blueberry Cashew Super Cereal in this smoothie bowl along with a few extra handfuls that I snacked on. The cereal is incredible! I love that I can still enjoy a nice crunch while still eating raw. Buckwheat groats are so awesome as a replacement to conventional sugar-loaded processed cereal. After looking at the healthy ingredients in this cereal you might think twice the next time you’re in the cereal aisle." - Raw Manda
