Before last May's 12 Healthy Habits breakfast challenge, Zoe Siswick's morning routine included waking up, walking her dog, and then heading off to work. Breakfast was something grabbed either before she left the house or on the way to work—usually an egg, bacon, and cheese sandwich from a deli across the street from her school. "I was having trouble finding balance. I was either famished because I didn't eat enough, or I was eating the breakfast sandwich and then feeling stuffed," she says. Zoe knew she could use some morning meal enlightenment, so she responded to a challenge tweet from Cooking Light's 12 Healthy Habits coach, Allison Fishman. With Fishman's input, Zoe turned things around: "I started to think about getting a protein, a whole grain, and a fruit or vegetable in my breakfast, so now that's something I think about when I'm preparing my other meals, too."
