Breakfast

One of the most important meals of our day, breakfast can make or break your energy levels, not just today but also tomorrow.

The problem is that most busy households go for a bowl of cereal and milk, orange juice, probably some coffee. We consume a bolus of blood-sugar pumping carbohydrates (a whopping 100+ grams if you use the nifty tool here and assume the “28gm cereal serving” is ¼ cup—who eats just ¼ cup?), then off to work or school… where soon enough we run out of energy, the insulin we just made forces our blood sugar low, we get tired, cranky and feel hungry again well before lunch. More pick-me-ups…

…and… most of that blood sugar that was sent to our cells for energy is converted to fat and stored.

Do you want to get off this treadmill and re-capture your fighting form?

Change your breakfast selection first. Start your day with good protein and healthy fats you can make in a flash. Make it all the way to lunch with energy to spare.
