Taking care of your health is a priority and nobody knows that more than physicians and healthcare providers. It can sometimes be difficult to find ways to stay healthy, so we’ve asked members of our Baylor College of Medicine community to share what they do in their daily lives to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Dr. Bobby Kapur is an associate professor of emergency medicine at Baylor.

I eat a banana every morning. I also have a cup of tea and either toast or oatmeal.
