Breakfast has to be followed up by balanced meals and snacks, of course, but it’s a powerful opportunity to establish a nourishing pattern at the start of a day. To make assembly easy, try preparing the dressing or the roasted veggies a day or so in advance. Prep time: xo. Chickpea Flour Pizza with Asparagus.
