Often referred to as ‘the most important meal of the day’, and there are reasons why!!
Breakfast is essential for fuelling the body with energy throughout the start of the day. How often do you find yourself being hungry at around 10-11 o clock and start reaching for those sweet treats that are meant to be saved for a special occasion?
When we sleep we obviously aren’t eating, but our bodies are busy recovering and growing, so when we wake up, we’ve been fasting
the whole night! Therefore it is important to start your day right and get some good quality food in you and give yourself some energy.
A breakfast rich in high quality protein and good fats is a great way to start the day. This will give your body the oomph it needs to kick start your metabolism, set you up for the day and help keep those hunger pangs at bay. Plus the good fats will help cognitive functioning meaning you’ll be firing on all cylinders right from the get go!
Coconut oil is a fantastic source of healthy fats and is a great substitute to use as a cooking oil. Why not try a 3 egg omelette with some bacon medallions, spinach and vine tomatoes. A great combination of flavours, vitamins, fats and proteins that will get you off to a flying start. If you want to do one better then wash it down with a tall glass of water with some lemon slices to help detox your body and you’re good to go!
This especially applies to all those early morning gym goers! Make sure you’ve got fuel in you so your body isn’t using that hard earned muscle tissue instead! Happy Eating!
