You probably heard it before and definitely heard it from me: what and when we eat are the most important factors to stay lean all year round.
No matter how hard your workout, nutrition is the X factor to long term progress.
Today I wanted to share my favorite breakfast in details.
The first thing I do is drink a large glass of water at room temperature. This kicks starts your digestive system and prepares you for the upcoming breakfast.
I then let 20-30 minutes pass before I actually eat breakfast.
This give you plenty of time to cook your morning meal.
I love a good omelette with veggies to start the day. It’s a great way to get your protein and fibers in at the same time.
I’ll mix 3-5 whole eggs (depending on how intense my workout day will be) in a bowl, that I set aside while cooking the veggies.
For those, I’ll heat up some olive oil, turmeric, garlic powder, in a pan then add some zucchinis, sliced mushrooms, salt, pepper, then add baby spinach when the mushroom and zucchini have cooked down (they both release lots of water).
Put the veggies aside after you cooked them and get your omelette ready. Once it’s a minute away form perfect, add the veggies back to the omelette before folding it in half in your plate. You can also add a bit of feta cheese before folding the omelette for that creamy feeling.
This is savory part of my breakfast.
I then turn to the sweet part.
You might have guessed it, I call it the oatmeal dessert bowl.
For this portion of the meal, I cook 1/2 to 1 cup of oatmeal (again depending on how intense my day will be) in about 1 inch of water.
I make sure to add turmeric and a splash of cinnamon to the cooking water.
When the water starts to reduce I add 1 table spoon peanut butter and 1 table spoon raw honey.
Mix the whole thing in the pan until it’s nice and creamy.
I then drop the mix in a bowl, add a few dark chocolate chips while the oatmeal is still warm (the melting effect is the best!), and some fruits (handful of strawberries and half a banana).
Last but not least, I pair my dessert with my favorite organic, home roasted, pour over black coffee, no cream, no sugar.
This, my friends, is the sign of a great day starting!
Follow this routine and you are guaranteed to feel full and fulfilled all day.
