Breakfast

December 7, 2015

Eating a nutritionally-balanced breakfast is an integral part of a healthy lifestyle. Hectic schedules sometimes tempt us to skip this meal and jump straight into our daily grind. On the other hand, we may find it easy to grab something fast and unhealthy or unbalanced for breakfast. By taking the time to prepare and enjoy a healthy dish, we start our day mindfully. Staving off hunger increases concentration and productivity, making breakfast a no-brainer. Keep in mind, an intuitive breakfast doesn’t have to take longer than 5 minutes! 

Breakfasts high in processed carbohydrates are popular in western culture; think pancakes, bread, and other baked goods. However, eating a varied breakfast with an emphasis on protein + fiber will give your body energy and help you feel full longer. 

You may be familiar with the popular ‘Egg in a Nest’, a slice of toast with a hole in the center for a fried egg. For a healthier spin on this classic, try replacing the slice of toast with a bell pepper ring. Bell peppers are loaded with vitamins – especially vitamin C, which protects your cells and keeps your bones, skin and heart healthy. I call this recipe Sunrise Peppers and it takes only a few minutes to prepare.
