New school year activities and schedules affect most of us in some way. These annual social pattern and timing changes commonly give rise to desires to improve upon the food we choose after the carefree summer. Intelligent breakfasts, school lunches, and meals become a challenge for many of us. We know these meals are important. Tasty, easy, and nutritious are what is called for, and doing so wisely is a great opportunity to improve ‘quality of life’.

A mighty decline in the quality and purity of commercial food has made it extremely necessary to know how to choose food more wisely. EDEN foods make this quite easy.

Empowering, protective, and bracing breakfasts and lunches are sage, whether you're headed to school, work, relaxing, or doing chores. Modern convenience foods deplete energy and undermine long-term health with their toxins, sugar, deleterious fats, etc. A hearty breakfast or lunch has to be quick and easy to pull together, and with a little planning this is easy to do with good food.

There is no better way to get ready to prepare good breakfasts and lunches than to keep the pantry stocked with organic EDEN Flakes, EDENSOY® Soymilk, EDEN Chilies, and EDEN Snacks. They are healthy staples, and easy to share and enjoy.
