Start Your Mornings With These Low Sugar Solutions
Breakfast is a great way to set the pace for the entire day. A healthy balanced breakfast ensures a high-energy, productive day ahead, free from blood sugar ups and downs and those pesky mid-day crashes.
The most important part of breakfast is to make sure you’re not inadvertently loading up on sugar. People eat a bagel and a glass of OJ and think that’s healthy, but that much sugar is a disaster in the making.
A truly healthy breakfast is full of healthy fats and protein as well as plenty of nutrient-dense vegetables. Eggs are a great breakfast food because they’re full of healthy fats as well as protein. Pair a few scrambled eggs with some tomato, avocado and maybe a side of sauerkraut and you’ve got yourself a delicious and nutritious meal to start the day with.
Here’s a great egg-based recipe, it’s quick, easy, and oh so good!
Scrambled Eggs with Tomato and Avocado
1 tablespoon coconut oil
sea salt and black pepper to taste
1 small tomato, sliced
½ avocado, sliced
Crack the eggs into a small bowl. Using a fork or whisk, beat the eggs until the yolks and egg whites are uniform. Set the eggs to the side. Place a pan over medium heat and add coconut oil. When the coconut oil is melted, add the eggs. Use a rubber spatula to fold the eggs towards the center until you no longer see any liquid (about 3 minutes). Season with salt and pepper as you fold. When the eggs are done, serve on a plate with sliced tomato and avocado.
Perhaps though, you are sensitive to eggs like I am. And your also gluten and dairy free like me. What then? It's still really easy to load your breakfast with protein and good fat. Here is my simple formula.
Fat:protein:carbs = 3:2:1 This is simpler than counting your macros, counting points etc. But ensures you get everything you need to set your brain and body up for a successful day. The following are my personal go-to's. Feel free to get creative in your kitchen. Have fun! Food should be enjoyed, savored & nourishing.
Fats...Avocado, coconut oil, grass fed ghee or butter, olive oil, hemp seeds, chia seeds, flax seeds
Protein...nitrate free organic bacon, grass fed ground beef, ground turkey, grass fed ground lamb, lox/salmon
Carbs...leafy greens, tomatoes, carrots, sweet potatoes, 1 piece of fruit (only 1)
So my go-to breakfast is usually, greens, tomatoe, bacon, with drizzle of olive oil, sea salt & black pepper. +/- bulletproof coffee. Super simple. Super easy. Fairly quick. This leaves me feeling energized, satisfied, and ready to tackle my day. I would love to hear what your daily breakfast routine is in the comments below.
