It’s a New Year and I’m sure a lot of you have made resolutions to eat healthier. Well, I’m not big on New Year’s resolutions, but I am all for making healthy choices. So for my first food blog of the year, I’d like to dedicate it to the first and most important meal of the day—breakfast!
I used to skip breakfast, but then I found myself unfocused and hungry before lunchtime. Our bodies need fuel to get us going, especially in the mornings. How we start the morning affects the rest of the day—the pitch is in the windup. If you don’t have a problem skipping breakfast, then good job, you’re already ahead of the game.
So what do I eat for breakfast on a typical day? Nothing fancy, just two eggs soft-boiled for 7 minutes. This fills me up and if I need it, I’ll have some black coffee too. Sometimes I’ll even have a little dark chocolate (at least 70% cacao). They say that dark chocolate is good for you. Well, moderation is key, right?
If I’m on the go and don’t have time to boil eggs or make breakfast, I take a handful of almonds and any fruit I have handy (i.e. apple, banana, or dried cranberries). As long as I can get something in my system, my body and mind are in harmony.
Hmm… fruit or cupcake?
Every now and then I do splurge. Yes, I admit it; I’ll have dessert for breakfast! What can I say? I have a sweet tooth! I just have to remind myself that moderation is key.
What are you having for breakfast? You could always try a Sweet Potato Latte.
