Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Breakfast” literally means the meal that “breaks the fast”. You’ve been sleeping all night fasting. 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.   Now, I hope you understand and see the importance of why eating a healthy breakfast is so important.  Now, I hope you see the importance of why eating a healthy breakfast is so important.  I am always thinking of my friends!

Chickpea, tomato and Zucchini Frittata

Eggs are among one of the healthiest foods on the planet. Eggs are particularly rich in the two antioxidants Lutein and Zeaxanthine. Eggs are loaded with high-quality proteins, vitamins, minerals, good fats and various trace nutrients, 6 grams of protein with all 9 essential amino acids. Rich in iron, phosphorous, selenium and vitamins A, B12, B2 and B5. Make sure to purchase omega 3 rich eggs, free roaming & organic not factory raised. Not all eggs are created equal. Stay away from your standard supermarket eggs. The chickens are usually raised in an overfilled hen house or a cage and never see the light of day. They are usually fed a grain-based feed that are supplemented with vitamins and minerals, antibiotics and hormones. So Like the commercial states it really is the incredible, edible egg!

Ingredients:

2 Tbsp. vegetable or olive oil

1 onion, thinly sliced

1 zucchini, thinly sliced

½ cup of cherry tomatoes cut in half

1 (15-oz.) can chickpeas, drained

1 garlic clove, crushed

½ tsp. chili flakes

½ tsp. ground cumin

3 Tbsp. chopped flat leaf parsley

6 organic cage free eggs

Heat oil in a cast iron skillet.  Add onion and sauté over medium heat for 6-8 minutes or until golden brown.

Add zucchini and tomatoes, increase the heat and sauté for 4 minutes or until softened. Stir in chickpeas, garlic, chili flakes, cumin and parsley and stir-fry for 2 minutes or until hot. Beat eggs with 2 tablespoons water and stir into vegetables. Place in oven and cook on 350 for about 20 minutes until its set.

Smoked Salmon Frittata

Eggs, salmon, and tomatoes. This recipe is loaded with all the nutrients that you need. The eggs have disease-fighting nutrients like lutein. Your salmon is loaded with omega 3’s, a good source of protein, B vitamins, vitamin D, magnesium and selenium. The tomatoes are also a powerhouse of nutrients from vitamin C, biotin, molybdenum, and vitamin K , copper, potassium, manganese, dietary fiber, vitamin A (in the form of beta-carotene), vitamin B6, folate, niacin, vitamin E, and phosphorus. Sounds like a perfect meal for breakfast or brunch.

Ingredients:

3 eggs

2 ounces smoked salmon

1 roma tomato, diced and seeded

¼ cup chopped onion

½ tablespoon chopped parsley leaves

1 tablespoon goat’s milk

2 tablespoons olive oil

Salt and pepper to taste

Preheat the oven to 350 °F.

Break the eggs in a bowl, add goat’s milk and seasoning, and whisk them.

Heat the oil in a cast iron skillet. Sauté the onions till golden brown, add the diced tomato and add seasoning. Add the salmon and sauté for 2 additional minutes. Pour the egg mixture in the pan and stir gently. Place in the preheated oven and cook for 20-25 minutes.

Homemade Turkey Sausage Patties

Turkey is rich in protein, low in fat and is a source of iron, zinc, potassium, phosphorus, vitamin B6 and niacin. It also contains the amino acid tryptophan, selenium and is lower on the GI index scale.

1 lb of ground turkey

1 teaspoon of dried sage

½ teaspoon of fennel seeds

Dash of cayenne, black pepper and ground all spice

Mix all ingredients in a bowl. Shape into small 3 inch patties and allow to refrigerate for 2 hours to help form. In a cast iron skillet on medium heat, cook the patties until completely cooked through on both sides. This would be great with some freshly scrambled eggs.

Quinoa is a slowly digested carbohydrate, naturally high in dietary fiber so this makes it a great low-GI option and an awesome choice for diabetics! Can you believe it!?

Signs of Magnesium Deficiency? 16 ways to boost up your Magnesium

tiredperson

        

 

Magnesium is a mineral that plays a important part  in our health and well-being. It’s one of the forgotten minerals and it’s vital for many processes within the body. Magnesium helps to keep the nervous system healthy and to calm your nerves when you are stressed. In fact, did you know that magnesium is the first mineral depleted when you are stressed? So if you have any type of stress in your life magnesium is the first mineral that goes out the window. Magnesium is also an important mineral co-factor for enzymes that have biochemical reactions in the body. In other words it plays a large role in digestive system health as it helps enzymes do their job as well as to loosen the body to relax and ease to support the metabolic processes.

 

How much magnesium do you need?

About 60% of your magnesium is in your bones, the rest is in body tissues, and only about 1% is in your blood. Adult men should take in 400 mg, while women should get 310 mg; this increases to 420 mg and 320 mg

1.Almonds

Magnesium: 105 mg in ¼ cup

Other body benefits: Almonds are rich in vitamin E, an antioxidant that keeps the immune system strong and eyes healthy. They’re also packed with protein, which helps fill you up and slim you down, as well as heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids.

2.Sesame seeds

Magnesium: 101 mg in 1 ounce roasted

Other body benefits: Sesame seeds may add some sizzle to your sex life—they’re chock-full of zinc, which can help testosterone and sperm production in men. They’re also a good source of iron and vitamin B-6.

3.Sunflower seeds

Magnesium: 128 mg in ¼ cup

Other body benefits: Sunflower seeds are a surprisingly good source of bone-building calcium. Additionally, they’re high in polyunsaturated fats, which can help reduce bad cholesterol levels in your blood when eaten in moderation.

4.Bananas

Magnesium: 33 mg in one medium banana

Other body benefits: When bananas are still a little green, they are one of the best sources of resistant starch, a healthy carb that fills your belly and fires up your metabolism. Bananas also offer a dose of potassium, an electrolyte that can help lower blood pressure naturally.

5.Cashews

Magnesium: 89 mg in ¼ cup

Other body benefits: A serving of cashews provides nearly 10% of your daily iron needs. The nuts are also a good source of folate and vitamin K.

Best ways to eat them: Have them on their own for a satisfying snack (just buy the unsalted kind). You could also toss them into a stir-fry or on top of a salad.

6.Tofu

Magnesium: 37 mg in ½ cup

Other body benefits: This vegetarian soy protein source gives you 43% of your daily calcium needs in a ½-cup serving. You also get a dose of iron, a mineral the body needs to produce hemoglobin—the protein that helps red blood cells deliver oxygen throughout the body.

( Please remember that if you have hypothyroidism you are to avoid soy products. It hinders your bodies ability to absorb medication per Mayo clinic )

Side note: Since we are talking hypothyroidism at this moment, generally, it’s best to wait four hours after taking thyroid medication to consume any products that contain soy. The same guidelines apply to other products that may impair the body’s ability to absorb thyroid medication, including concentrated iron and calcium supplements, and antacids that contain calcium or aluminum hydroxide per mayo clinic.

7.Pumpkin seeds

Magnesium: 74 mg in 1 ounce

Other body benefits: The seeds from your jack-o-lantern are a good source of fiber, with 5 grams per ounce. Pumpkin seeds also have plenty of heart-healthy monounsaturated fats, as well as 5 grams of protein per serving.

8.Flaxseed

Magnesium: 40 mg in 1 tablespoon whole

Other body benefits: A sprinkling of ground flaxseed turns a cup of yogurt or cereal into a heart-healthy breakfast: a tablespoon contains more than half your recommended daily intake of omega-3 fatty acids. Flaxseed also gives you doses of fiber and the antioxidant lignan.

9.Milk (skim)

Magnesium: 27.8 mg in 1 cup

Other body benefits: You’ve had the health benefits of milk drilled into your head since you were a kid, but here’s a quick review: a cup of milk provides about a third of your daily recommended intake of calcium, which you need to build healthy bones and keep them strong as you age. Milk is also a good source of potassium, vitamin D, protein, and vitamin B-12.

If you need a reason to stop drinking cow’s milk here is a good article:

The truth about Milk

Side note: If  you don’t drink cow’s milk like me you can also Use almond milk. It also  can vary in magnesium content depending on whether the company has added magnesium to the product. However, the amount of naturally occurring magnesium in one cup of almond milk is about 16 mg .

However, Coconut Milk is loaded with Magnesium

11.Broccoli

Magnesium: 51 mg in ½ cup cooked

Other body benefits: A serving of the cruciferous superfood contains more vitamin C than an orange. Plus, research shows that people who eat lots of broccoli may have a lower risk of certain types of cancer, including colon and bladder cancer.

( please remember that if you have hypothyroidism raw  cruciferous vegetables can harm the thyroid. You would have to really consume a ton of cruciferous vegetables the scientific studies are still out but try to limit raw cruciferous vegetables and eat cooked. Please do eat your cancer fighting veggies)

12.Sweet corn

Magnesium: 33 mg in 1 ear

Other body benefits: Some people say carb-heavy corn is a diet no-no. Though corn does have 6 to 8 grams of naturally occurring sugar in one ear, this healthy whole grain is also a great source of fiber, B vitamins, vitamin C, and plant-based protein.
