Melissa Peterman relies on a well-tuned morning routine to remain healthy. She starts her day with an organic egg omelet with fresh spinach accompanied with a fruit smoothie and a side of turkey bacon.
In case, she is too busy, she is reduced to eating cottage cheese from a container while getting her son ready for the school. While on the way to drop her son to school, she munches on an apple. On some occasions, she adds cinnamon to the cottage cheese and dips an apple in it.
