January’s normally the month where gym and yoga sessions are in full swing, and every other juice cleanse is being tested out, so I thought I’d start off the new year with something light for that morning diet.

And here in New York, where it’s easy to grab anything on the go, breakfast is somewhat of an afterthought, that is until mid-morning and my body craves something semi-unhealthy because stress levels are its peak.
