How to actually Eat a Healthy Breakfast

Breakfast can often be the trickiest meal of the day because we are often so rushed in the morning. Breakfast also sets the stage for the rest of the day, so it is best to be prepared with the most nourishing breakfast we can for our bodies. For every meal (or snack- but try to limit snacking) you consume you want it to contain the following items:
• Fat
• Fiber
• Protein
These are the elements our bodies need to function at peak performance and to stay full and satisfied. Refer to the grocery guide for examples of fat, fiber, and protein. You’ll notice I have not included carbs. I think healthy carbs can be a part of a healthy diet, but we are able to get enough carbs from our vegetables and fruits that we don’t need to add in extra. Especially for breakfast try to keep to low carb or at least healthier carbs (these carbs don’t spike the blood sugar as drastically, which is best for our bodies (see the grocery shopping guide for examples).

Some healthy breakfast options are:
• Two eggs (protein), ½ avocado (fat), 2 cups sautéed vegetables (spinach, greens or any precooked veggies left over from dinner (fiber) drizzled with Extra Virgin Olive Oil (fat)
• Smoothie with clean form of protein powder (without sugar or very low <4g/serving) or collagen (protein) or 1-2 T nut butter (protein), coconut milk (fat), 1/4-1/3 c berries (low sugar fruit), greens, and frozen them steamed cauliflower, zucchini, or squash, 1 T chia or flax seeds (fiber).
• Breakfast Tacos: scrambled eggs and/or ground meat(protein), sautéed veggies (fiber), and avocado (fat) with almond flour tortillas (lower carb gluten free option)
• Smoked Salmon (protein & fat), sautéed vegetables (fiber), drizzled with Extra Virgin Olive Oil (fat).
• Chia Pudding: Chia Seeds(fiber), coconut or nut milk (fat), topped with nuts or nut butter (protein)
