Whenever I feel sluggish from having eaten badly or skipped workouts, starting my day off with a workout and a great breakfast (usually oats with whey protein powder) reminds me of all the reasons I enjoy clean eating and an active lifestyle; it definitely boosts my energy and confidence tenfold

Since I work fulltime and the weekdays are uber busy I make sure to get to the grocery and farmer's market on Sunday to be sure the family will have all the fruits and veggies we'll need for the week (including the fruit I'll need to take with me to work). Just love my apple a day!
Lemons are great in morning tea and bananas really fill me up after workout
Mexican food is the easiest for me to make healthy, so I will prepare a taco salad for dinner with lettuce, red bell pepper, black beans, tomatoes, fat free cheese, lean ground turkey, and scallions. I will combine all the left overs into a container and the next morning or evening, toss them all into egg whites for a healthy veggie scramble. It uses my leftovers and gives me a high protein punch for breakfast that keeps me very full until lunch around 1 pm. Its great after a morning workout.
Eating a healthy breakfast gives me lots of energy to get thru the morning & prevents grazing.
I like to start my day with a bowl of old fashioned oatmeal with cinnamon & milk. Then I add in a few raisins & 1/2 tsp of peanut butter for creaminess. Finish off with a glass of Minute Maid 1/2 sugar OJ.
