The Breakfast Experiment: Which breakfast was made for you?

1 Comment

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

There has been a lot of emphasis on the importance of eating a healthy breakfast. It can help to boost your metabolism, give you energy, and help to prevent snacking and unhealthy choices later in the day.

But which breakfast is best for you? Try the Breakfast Experiment. Try eating each breakfast 2-3 times and note how you feel.

  • 30 minutes later, how do you feel?
  • Two hours later how do you feel?

Are you still hungry? Do you have more energy? Are you bloated? Have your food cravings decreased? Finding the breakfast that best suits you for the first meal of the day is a great way to set yourself up for success for the rest of your day.

Breakfast 1: Cleansing

Green smoothie: see post on “Build-a-Green-Smoothie”

Breakfast 2: Strengthening

2 whole eggs

greens (kale, spinach) sautéed in olive oil with veggies (your choice): peppers, mushrooms, tomatoes, broccoli, asparagus

Breakfast 3: Comforting

1 cup cooked oatmeal

¼ cup blueberries

1/8 cup chopped nuts

dash of cinnamon, vanilla

Breakfast 4: Cooling

1 cup, plain Greek yogurt

½ cup berries

1/8 cup sliced almonds

1 teaspoon raw honey (optional)

Breakfast 5: Warming

1 cup cooked quinoa

½ cup unsweetened almond milk

¼ cup pomegranates

1/8 cup chopped nuts

dash of cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom

Knowing the ratio of protein, fat, and carbs you need for your body type will give you greater energy to support you for what’s ahead the rest of your day. This will also help you to identify any potential food intolerances you may have that might make you feel less-than-prepared to take on the day!
