Maca is reputed to boost energy but the mechanism of action is unknown. Raspberries are a source of vitamin C, complex carbohydrates and dietary fiber, and they have a low glycemic index which means they won’t spike your blood sugar and send you into a crash. Instead, they’ll keep you steady and strong.

Want a better version of your Long Island Iced Tea? Look no further: Boston seafood restaurant Legal Seafoods mixes up a Peach Tea Punch. It's a grownup, more sophisticated cocktail with the flavor of tea and a mix of rums, cognac, and peach liqueur. (Warning: The recipe is for an entire punch, not just one cocktail, so you know, don't drink the whole thing. It's no longer cool to black out after a Long Island Iced Tea.)
Eggs are by far my favorite breakfast. They're just so darn good. Aren't they? I can remember when I was a young girl and my mother taught me how to make sunny-side up eggs — I thought I was so cool.I invited my grandma over just to make 'em for her — and they were a bit too runny and undercooked, but I was still proud. Then, came the hard-boiled eggs. And deviled eggs. And then omelettes. Then frittatas. And egg bakes. But just recently I thought… Why not make some cute little egg muffins?So I did. I made this fun lil' easy egg recipe just for you.Click here to see Healthiest Breakfast Recipes.

Did you know that the dry muesli that comes in a box bears no resemblance whatsoever to the fresh muesli you can make from scratch?
If you've never tasted fresh, homemade muesli, you owe it to yourself to try this recipe.
The heart of fresh muesli is rolled oats soaked in milk. (I love to add currants to the oats for the delicate sweetness they release.) Once they've absorbed the milk, you'll coarsely grate loads of snappy apples and add them to the mix, along with yogurt, honey, and a generous splash of lemon juice.
The lemon juice is a critical ingredient here. It brightens the flavors and brings a needed counterpoint to the sweetness of the fruits and honey. So don’t be tempted to skimp.
Serve it with seasonal berries and toasted almonds, and you have a muesli that's not only nutritious, it's also light and absolutely delicious.
What a perfect way to start your day!
