Eat your breakfast like this to feel better all day!

Today I want to challenge you to do one simple thing every morning for the next week.  And it’s not simply “eat breakfast”, though I am an advocate for eating a good breakfast!  Beyond just making sure you eat breakfast, and even beyond discussing WHAT you eat for breakfast (which does matter too), a key factor that’s often missed is WHEN you eat your breakfast.

 

If we’ve worked together one-on-one, I have likely asked you to eat breakfast within an hour of waking up.  This is something I ask all of my clients to try.  That’s because eating within an hour of waking up is critical for your blood sugar balance.  That might not sound like something that applies to you, but if you’re struggling with low energy levels or fatigue, cravings, anxiety, or any type of hormonal imbalance, making sure your blood sugar is balanced is absolutely key to helping you feel better.

 

In this week’s video I talk more about what you may experience if you eat breakfast too late.  I also address what to do if you’re not used to eating breakfast very early or you feel like you can’t eat a lot in the morning.

Here are the recipes I mentioned in the video: Read more »

My Favorite Breakfast Smoothie

Breakfast Smoothie

I came up with this recipe in my quest to find a dairy-free breakfast smoothie with sufficient protein that tasted good and wasn’t too sweet.

This smoothie is my answer for a quick meal.  It’s high in protein without relying on dairy or protein powders.  It’s fairly thick, and very filling.  I love to eat it with a spoon, although a straw will work too!  It’s not overly sweet, and has a nice nutty flavor.  There are a lot of ingredients, and I think it’s worth it!
