One of the most difficult things about transitioning to a healthier lifestyle is the diet.

I’ve never been a big breakfast fan. I wake up, meditate for a few minutes, then grab some herbal bullet proof tea but breakfast gets your metabolism buzzing and will help keep you focused and energized throughout your day.

Not eating breakfast can make your body left feeling fatigued, added weight gain, skin problems and cause you to have a low metabolism.

“Your body needs to be rebooted. You’ve got to “jump-start” that metabolism. Eating a healthy breakfast has been medically proven to have many health benefits, including weight control , reducing the risk of obesity , it certainly will boost your fiber intake to help you reach your daily goal of 20 to 35 grams (for adults). Eating breakfast has been shown to improve performance, have heart health advantages, helps you avoid fluctuating glucose levels, which can lead to diabetes later in life, helps you consume less calories throughout the day, so you’re not binge eating of starvation at lunch time. It will give you that mental edge by enhancing your memory, your clarity, and the speed in which you are processing information, your reasoning skills, your creativity and how you absorb information. Scientists at the University of Milan in Italy reviewed 15 studies and found some evidence that those benefits. One theory suggested that if you eat a healthy breakfast it can reduce hunger throughout the day, and help you make better food choices at other meals. You should eat no later than 2 hours of waking up. Also, if you skip breakfast your hunger hormones are boosted and it can also throw your body into survival mode. Which in return starts breaking down protein in your muscles and your muscles will slowly start to break down. “

Did you know that your pituitary gland controls metabolism, mood, and many other organ functions, and it’s either weakened by toxins or fueled by nutrients each time you eat, starting with breakfast – again makes this the most important meal of the day.

Your breakfast  should be a powerhouse for metabolic function and it needs to be full of healthy essential fats that burst with nutrition.

All of the egg-haters shall  unite in victory. I want you to believe in breakfast again so I’ve searched and found many awesome, healthy, eggless options that are filling. Who needs to eat the same boring thing every single day? The best way to ensure you’re getting enough of all the vitamins and minerals that your body needs to function optimally is mixing  things up and eating a variety of foods .

Yes-Eggs are high in protein but you can also get what your body needs from plant-based proteins and other food sources. Let’s be inspired together. I think its wonderfully fantastic that you are taking charge of your health and nutritional needs. Honestly, its the little things that count like cutting out sugar, adding more plant based foods, and exercising .The wisdom your gathering today will make a positive change your life for tomorrow.
