Shop Heather's Breakfast Essentials

As an advocate of realistic, fresh, and innovative approaches to health and beauty, it's no secret that internal and external wellness is a priority on all fronts in Heather's life, with an emphasis on her morning routine. 

The very first thing Heather does in the morning is 'put on her workout clothes because then there is just no excuse[...] you're working out.'

Now, whether you're working out on the best treadmill or go for the best rowing machine is up to you. 

The one tip Heather has? Working out first thing in the day because she prefers to 'cardio fast, which is basically working out on an empty stomach, so you're using glycogen storage and your fat storage instead of the food you ate.' 

And, when it's time to refuel? Her breakfast time is contingent on a handful of products that work wonders inside-and-out.
