In her new book, "Healthy Living from the Inside Out: Every Woman’s Guide to Real Beauty, Renewed Energy, and a Radiant Life," actress-turned-author Mariel Hemingway suggests starting off each day with a healthy morning protein and fruit-based shake instead of a bowl of cereal.

"For some reason America decided that sweet food and grain-based food is what should be served for breakfast," says the 45-year-old mother of two. "But it's not the case in other parts of the world. In Sweden, Japan, or Scotland you might eat fish first thing; in the Alps you'd get cheese and cold cuts; in South India you'd feast on delicious lentil stew."

Adjust your breakfast first and you are more likely to start the day from a place of neutral calm, says Hemingway. Here's her recipe.
