I don’t know about you but if I don’t eat breakfast in the morning shortly after waking up, I start feeling a headache coming and sort of nauseous. I try to always have a huge cup of water before I start eating anything. Remember, your body was fasting while you were asleep. It’s good you first hydrate yourself, wait a little, and then make yourself a hearty breakfast. Choosing a healthy breakfast will really help you stay on track and really motivate you to choose the right foods during the day. I know personally if I start my day with a not so healthy choice like a chocolate chip cookie, I will probably not eat healthier later on. I love looking forward to breakfast! I try to always change up what I eat for breakfast so that I am likely to not get bored.
Lately, I have been obsessed with bagels! I am trying to consume less dairy so I don’t use cream cheese, instead I have been using avocado to replace that fatty creamy goodness spread. I like getting bagels from Whole Foods, and scooping out the innards, toasting it just till the edges get a little crispy and the inside soft. I then scoop out avocado slices, spread it on the bagel and add some garlic powder and black pepper. I try to make it more heartier and filling by sautéing baby kale/spinach and 1 egg on a separate pan and add it to my bagel. I discovered that a squeeze of lime added on my bagel brings out so much flavor! If I am feeling a bit fancy, I will add sliced tomatoes as well. I hope this inspires you to have a delicious nutritious filled breakfast! What is your favorite go to breakfast food?
