Breakfast

The most important start to the day! Did you know that breakfast actually means “to break the fast” after the last meal you ate before going to bed and the first meal you eat upon waking up? That’s one of the reasons it’s crucial to eat a balanced breakfast upon waking up so that your body doesn’t go into starvation mode, your metabolism is boosted, and helps deliver vital nutrients to your body.

By skipping breakfast, your metabolism slows down and your body stores fat which can increase your cholesterol. Eating breakfast has been shown to increase your ability to focus, help you maintain a healthy weight, give you energy, reduce stress, and helps you to not overeat throughout the day.

Here are some of my favorite meals to start my morning!

French Toast, Sunny Side Up!


Egg white scramble with brown rice, red bell pepper, corn, black beans and spices.

 I took 4 egg whites and 1 yolk and started to scramble them in a pan. Then I added in 1/4 cup premade brown rice, 1/4 of a bell pepper, 1/4 cup black beans, and 1/4 cup corn and scrambled them all together. I sprinkled a little taco seasoning and chili powder on top and enjoyed it with 1/4 of a fresh grapefruit and a cup of green tea. By the way, this meal is full of vitamin b because of the brown rice and eggs. This is a great way to start the day because it’s rich in protein and contains complex carbs which your body slowly breaks down and uses for energy. Grapefruits can help with maintaining a healthy weight and help boost your immune system. They have less sugar in them than oranges and can even be a great sleep conductor when consumed before bed.
