Have you heard the phrase “Have breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, and dinner like a college student with a maxed out credit card”
Now, the more important question is, do you follow this?
Personally, I am very guilty of skipping breakfast. I’m always in a crazy rush in the am and sometimes all I have is a cup of coffee. That being said, you all know, I am working on taking better care of my health, and what better way to start, then with breakfast. The most important meal of the day. What you eat for breakfast will ultimately determine how the rest of your day will unfold…food wise, that is. People who eat breakfast (a healthy one), tend to not only have a healthier diet overall but are also more productive, have a better mental clarity and…wait for it…are slimmer then people who don’t. Now, isn’t that an awesome incentive for you to eat your breakfast!
You can prep this the night before and just add hot water/milk to it in the am. Top with some fruit and you have a breakfast,that will keep you full till lunch
Avocado and Egg on toast
I found this on Pinterest and at first I cringed thinking Avo and Egg together….but let me tell you this concoction is the bomb and super quick to make.
2 slices of low G.I Bread toasted
Half an avo
2 boiled eggs/scrambled or sunny side up…whichever catches your fancy
Keeps me full for about 5 hours
This is so yummolicious, and healthy and filling and so so easy to make. Prep it the night before.
I use 1 cup of either soya or almond milk (soya milk has more protein and calcium), Mix in 1 teaspoon of honey. This is merely for taste, you can leave it out or add more if you like.
Mix in 1 teaspooon of vanilla essense and then mix in 3 tablesppons of chia seeds. Refigerate overnight. This makes it thick, like a pudding.
In the am, top with some berries/ nuts and you’re good to go
Bananas and peanut butter on toast
2 slices of low gi bread
2 tablespoons of peanut butter. You could also try macadamia butter
And sprinkle with chia seeds
Fruit salad and yoghurt.
5 raw almonds
1 red apple
¾ cup plain yoghurt
½ cup of soya/almond milk
¼ teaspoon of cinnamon
Place all ingredients in blender and blend until your desired consistency is reached. I make my smoothies the night before and refrigerate
Do give these breakfast options a try and let me know what you think.
Stay healthy….lets bring sexy back
