Breakfast YAY!

Hi everyone!

Im sorry it’s been a while since I’ve written anything!

Well, Its January, And I have lots of New Years resolutions. One of them is eat as healthy as possible and workout a minimum of 4 times a week. (and try to keep it up for longer than a month) ;)

Sometimes when I get motivated to eat healthy and to tone up a little more, I think of a drastic quick way of doing it, but that would end up in me over eating at the end of the week because I felt so deprived.

The way to eat healthy is ofcourse something we have all heard a billion times. Eat lots of fruits and veggies, grains, low-fat dairy (if you aren’t a vegan) Lean Proteins (if you are not a vegetarian)

So now to not fall back into old patterns here’s a tip I want to share that helps me stay on track and doesn’t make me feel starved during the day..

-Eat a great breakfast. A breakfast you actually enjoy to eat. Of course make it as healthy as possible. So for example if you love pancakes, make them but use whole grains, top it with fruit and alittle agave nectar. That will give you fuel throughout the day (and make you happy!)..

For my favorite breakfast at the moment I cut up a banana, I put it in a bowl, I add flaxseeds, raisins, muesli (nuts and dried fruits added in there) and scoop yoghurt (sometimes soy yoghurt) over it. I make sure the bowl is completely filled, no stingy portions aloud especially when its healthy like that! I take my time to eat that with a cup of green tea..

I dont feel the urge to eat much for the rest of the day because breakfast satisfied me so much. If I feel the urge to eat a lot of something that I know if bad for me later on in the day I say no, wait until tomorrow morning..(ok it doesn’t always work haha)

Then for the rest of the day I do like to eat lots of greens and fruits.

I look forward to start the day and don’t feel depressed because I’m thinking “argg another starving diet day” ;)

I hope this tip helps!

xxxxx

    Thank you very much for your article Mallory.
    I don’t feel depressed right now, and I’m fortunate to be happy in my life, but I’ll make a confession, I eat not healthy as it should.
    I know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and thank you very much for your tip Mallory, but I’m unable to eat for breakfast (just a coffee milk (cow’s milk)).
    I’m wong and you right to promote breakfast.

    Hi Christophe!!
    aahh I love coffee as well. I have a cup of coffee (or 2 or 3) a few times a week. But love drinking green tea as well. Try to switch to green tea if you can, it is very good for you and tastes really refreshing.
    Even though you aren’t much of a breakfast eater, try to have something small at least, like some fruit or toast or eggs to get your metabolism going. If you need some recipes for some delicious healthy breakfast ideas please let me know! then afterwards if you really crave it, have your cup of coffee :)

    Thank you so much for your post, very interesting read!
    Im probably the biggest advocate of breakfast, I literally wake up in the morning and the only thing that gets me out of bed is the thought of it, starting the day in peaceful silence with breakfast and tea/coffee.
    I usually have oatmeal, cooked in hot oatmilk with goji beeries and/or almonds/hasel nuts, which I love, however, since Ive begun to eat more raw and more small meals throughout the day I feel like a big bowl of oats fills me up to much, I almost feel stuffed.
    The thing is, I normally do 1-2h of sports right after breakfast in the morning so I do feel the need to have smth rather nutritous, I thought about having a green smoothie for breakfast but I fear that might be too little (I drink them after the work out, now).
    Do you perhaps have any suggestions, maybe even with some extra proteins ? Would be hugely appreciated :)

    Hi Nele!!
    Yum, that breakfast sounds so delicious!
    I completely understand what you mean, I feel a little too full if I eat a big bowl of muesli and then work out right after.
    Are you a vegan or a vegetarian?
    If not, I would recommend scrambling 2 eggs, cut up some avocado and a tomato add some salt, pepper and red pepper flakes (if you like a little spice in your food)
    Theres a good boost of protein and healthy fats, and a nice portion (you wont feel stuffed when working out)
    Or toast your favorite piece of bread spread a little organic peanut butter on it and put slices of banana on there.
    what about having some yoghurt (regular, soy or whatever other kind you can find) with flaxseeds, walnuts, blueberries and a little agave nectar?

    I hope these tips help!
