Good food will make or break (fast) me!

Thursday, August 23, 2012

When I eat a truly nutritious breakfast, it carries me through to the next meal. I get enough whole grains and fiber from veggies and fruit to fill my hungry stomach. There are good fats in a good breakfast that make me feel satiated, and I sometimes think, "I can eat this? Awesome!"

A good breakfast used to be a bagel from the deli with egg and cheese. I'm from New Jersey, and that was just what I grew up craving... We have awesome pizza and bagels, so just trust me on that. Even if I ordered egg whites, I could tell the whole thing was full of oil and grease from the cook top. I always thought my addiction to cheese was uncurable, but now that I'm eating lots of variety and whole foods, I can see the difference in my energy and cravings throughout the day.

What are some of your favorite breakfasts around 350 calories?

Two days ago I ate a sweet potato topped with almond butter and maple syrup. It was so filling, i was grinning for an hour after i ate it. Who am I???!
Yesterday I had quinoa cooked with creamy almond milk and served with blueberries, chopped walnuts, and a slice of turkey bacon.
Today's fast was broken with a whole grain waffle served with pears, grated ginger, sliced almonds, fat-free ricotta, honey, strawberries, and a sprig of mint for color.

I think my husband is wondering who he married all of a sudden, but he loved all of these breakfasts, too.

    I have found the same thing with my breakfast. I still love bagels, but a good smoothie and toast, or granola, blueberries, and yogurt are great too.

Keep up the good work!
