Sometimes the simplest breakfasts are the best breakfasts. After I graduated from college and got my first real job, I constantly skipped breakfast. I always said I was in too much of a hurry to get to work so I just grabbed a coffee and ran out the door. I was working out like crazy but instead of gaining muscle I just kept getting skinnier. This may be some people’s goal but it wasn’t mine. That’s when I realized my food intake was affecting me more than I realized. For someone with a degree in Exercise and Sports Sciences you’d think I would have caught this right away. Not always when it’s yourself. I decided to make some changes in my diet. Breakfast was a must. So I traded in my coffee for protein and fats (good fats). I saw a huge improvement in my overall energy and eventually my size. To this day I still make sure to eat a healthy breakfast. My favorite is avocado toast! Some mornings it’s difficult with a little one so I grab a protein shake. But that’s better than nothing at all! As a mom of an infant I need all the natural energy I can get so fueling my body properly is a must!
