Did You Make a Good Breakfast Choice?
Many people start their day with the wrong breakfast. They consume large amounts of sugar, fat and salt, then feel sluggish, unmotivated and fat, so they grab some more fat, sugar and salt to feel better. Break the cycle and start your day with amazing energy, metabolism and focus. Ask yourself these questions to see if you ate the best breakfast for you:
- Why did you choose it?
- How did you feel after eating?
- What was the quality of the food?
- Did it have excessive sugar, fat, salt and preservatives/chemicals?
- Could you have made a better decision? If yes, what?
- Why didn't you make a better decision?
Do you want to lose weight, have more energy and have less pain? Breakfast is a chance to achieve all three of those things! Tomorrow morning make a conscious choice to eat a lean protein like eggs, energizing carbs like oatmeal & berries, and a good source of fat like almond butter.
