The report is due in two hours. Or you are rushing to get the kids dressed, fed and off to school/camp. Or you’re making sales calls… Suddenly, bam! Around 10:30 a.m. you hit a wall. All you want to do is look out the window or worse, take a nap.
Hmm… what did you eat for breakfast?
I hate to say, “I told you so,” so I’ll turn to Mom, who has said it countless times: Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It’s the meal that’s designed to supply a third of the macro and micronutrients your body needs to run without a hitch.
So what are you eating each morning to do all these things? A cup of coffee gulped down on the go? A cup of sugary yogurt and a muffin eaten at your desk? Nothing at all?
Your body deserves so much better than that, and so do you!
When you eat a good breakfast, your day goes smoothly. No growling stomachs, low blood sugar shakiness, or wandering attention to keep you from nailing those big goals you’ve made for yourself.
What Breakfast is Right for You?
One of the best – and most fun – ways to find out which foods serve YOU most powerfully is something called the Breakfast Experiment. For one week, eat a different breakfast each day. Record in a notebook what you ate, how you felt immediately after the meal, and how you felt again two hours later.
- Day one: scrambled egg whites with spinach and veggies
- Day two: protein smoothie with organic fresh berries and protein powder
- Day three: oatmeal w/almond milk and chopped walnuts
- Day four: toast with almond butter (gf or sprouted always best)
- Day five: muffin and coffee (experimenting here / not recommended)
- Day six: fresh fruit
- Day seven: granola with greek yogurt
Feel free to repeat the experiment for another seven days with different foods each morning. Which breakfasts made you feel energized? Which ones didn’t? After the experiment, try adding in more of the foods that made you feel great!
