“Staying active has always helped me”, said Lester Asamoah, a mentor through the Big Brothers, Big Sisters program in Oklahoma City, OK.

As a physician and sports enthusiast it’s important to make sure I’m fueling my body with healthy, nutritious foods to stay fit and focused.

This all starts with breakfast. Each morning, my wife and I make sure to provide our kids with a healthy and tasty meal to start their day and give them the boost they need for an active day.
