Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It literally does what is says…breaks your fast after a night of good sleep. You need to wake up your metabolism and get your blood sugar stabilized each morning, and the best way to do that is drink a large glass of fresh clean water and eat a breakfast that contains protein, carbohydrates (preferably complex CHO with a significant amount of fiber) and a small amount of fat.
Here’s a pretty quick and healthy breakfast idea if you have a busy day or heavy workout ahead of you.
One whole bagel (I had an Einstein bros onion bagel on hand)
Two egg whites cooked in a non-stick skillet
Reduced fat cheddar cheese slice-1oz.
Filling, good source of protein, low fat, and a half a vegetable serving…all for around 350 calories. Add a half a grapefruit for additional vitamin C and one fruit serving!
