Start Your Day with a Switch

This post is about breakfast, my favorite meal of the day.

You all eat breakfast, right? Right? You DO know that breakfast is the most important meal you can eat, and it revs your engine (ie. your body) to tackle the day. Of COURSE you knew that!

If you’re like most people, you probably eat the same breakfast every day. A bowl of fiber cereal? Cereal with yogurt, perhaps? A banana and coffee? Or maybe you have time to prepare yourself a multi-course breakfast on china plates with linen napkins (doubtful, but you never know).

The next two weeks I am engaging in a breakfast experiment where each day…you guessed it…I’ll experiment with a different breakfast. I’ll make notes about how the food feels in my body right after I eat, and then again 2 hours later. Yesterday I had oatmeal (with hemp seed, flax, and berries) and this morning I had two slices of rice toast with almond butter, 1/2 banana, flax, and a bowl of strawberries. I have NEVER had toast for breakfast, and you know what…I REALLY enjoyed it! And better yet, I’m still satisfied.

So, why don’t you give your basic, boring, routine breakfast a little shake up. If you’re starving soon after you eat breakfast, you need to revise. Try adding protein, like a nut butter, seeds, and eggs (you can keep hardboiled eggs for convenience). Perhaps a big smoothie is better suited for you. Just let loose and have fun!

Remember, breakfast is THE most important part of your day and the best gift you can give your body each morning. Don’t skimp!

    I love the idea of food experiementing and your check in a couple hours later is so key. Curious to see if any of the experiements make their way into your daily routine. I’m a serious smoothie kind of gal. If you need smoothie suggestions let me know.

      I’d love some smoothie recipes! I did very well with rice toast, almond butter, and banana, and also brown rice with an assortment of nuts/seeds and some dried currants.
