This weeks focus is breakfast. I always make sure I eat something for breakfast because it start your metabolism and helps you to feel energized throughout the day. You’ve heard the saying breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It’s true and here is why. What you choose for breakfast is crucial for your health. For example, what do you think will keep you full for longer, a sweet sugary donut or a quick omelette with spinach?
A quick fix is not what you need to start you day off right, we should eat items that will give us a long-lasting effect. After fasting all night, which is why we “break the fast” with breakfast no pun intended our bodies are looking to be re-energized. To kick-start your energy level I suggest slow burning foods like whole grains and fruits. To avoid the mid-day sugar slump and to resist the sweet sugary temptation of that chocolate cream filled donut here is my advice for you.
Stock your pantry and fridge with some of the items I have listed below. These were just a few of the items on my grocery list for this week.
Eggs (organic or regular, if you’re just starting out don’t sweat the small stuff)
Whole wheat carbs- bread, bagels, english muffins, saltines/ritz crackers they are there just look 🙂
Veggies- perfect for omelets and even just a 10am snack
Mint Tea- gives you natural energy
Yogurt- there are plenty of flavors go wild!
FRUIT- pick a fruit any fruit
Protein powder- I like vanilla whey, I put this in my fruit smoothies
There are a variety of different breakfast items you can make just from this little list here.
Hardboiled eggs with string cheese and ritz crackers
Fruit Smoothie (yogurt, protein powder, ice milk or water)
Yogurt & Granola w/ fruit
Toast w/ peanut butter and honey w/ cinnamon (yes this is my go to fast breakfast) ❤
Egg whites & Spinach
Honey Tea-hot water and cinnamon (great morning detox)
This will last you for more than one week, if you’re anything like me and like to eat the same thing for a few days just out of pure laziness or obsession with simplicity then this is your go-to basic breakfast food list. Don’t forget about your spices!
