Omelette stuffed with plain tuna and chicken breast.

Other than the obvious benefits of healthier food, more protein in my diet at half the price and the much more sane use of salt and spices, there’s a more important reason for waking up every morning to prepare my own meals.

It is much simpler to enjoy an hour more of sleep instead of waking up earlier to cook up meals. It is hard work and takes discipline every single time.

The mere act of doing so gives me a sense of empowerment that I am starting my day right. There is a psychological boost that comparatively, I am already doing better than others who are still sleeping.

Start your morning by doing something meaningful, it gives your life a sense of purpose.
