Set Up for a Great Day
When you want to sail through the morning with better energy, performance and mood….
Quality breakfast is always the answer. Make time for what is important. A little forward thought goes a long way to make sure a simple quality breakfast is a staple of a smart morning routine.
Reap the Rewards:
- Breakfast comprised of quality protein with healthy fat (examples below)creates a foundation for long burning energy. Add a veggie and outperform the best of the best! A few baby spinach leaves or zucchini slices is all it takes.
- No more blood sugar dips. Sail smoothly all the way to lunch without a trip to the kitchen or vending machine for ‘food’ you know you don’t want to consume.
- Clear thinking is fueled to alleviate mood, anxiety or depressive issues.
- The human body is a brilliant cascade of interdependent function. Quality breakfast sets up a 24 hour cycle of happiness.
- Better breakfast means better sleep. Processed sugary nonfood spikes cortisol dysregulation which interrupts a good night’s sleep.
- Look Better. Advanced Aging/Glycation is a result of consuming processed food.
Wild Salmon, Cream Cheese, topped with red onion and sprouts or baby greens on organic sprouted whole grain toast. Prep time under 10 minutes.
How to Make Healthy Mornings Happen:
- Hydrate. Naturally the body wakes dehydrated. Start your day with a glass of room temperature water. Adding a spoonful of lemon juice is a great tonic for your digestion, blood, liver and gallbladder.
- Choose Wisely. Hard boiled eggs, grass fed plain full fat yogurt with a small handful of walnuts or almonds, baked sweet potato with butter and an egg, overnight slow cooker steel cut oats with a pat of butter and apples with milk (cow, goat, almond, coconut), wild salmon (leftovers or lox) with cream cheese, and seasonal fresh whole fruit (pears and apples in season now) and leftovers from dinner are easy weekday choices.
- Avoid Fake Food. The human body is designed for real food. Long unprounceable ingredients and labels leading with wheat (because it has been processed to death) and sugar are to be avoided. Fructose, mannitol, sorbitol, corn syrup, maltodextrin etc. are highly processed forms of sugar that promote chaos in the body.
