If you follow me on Instagram, you may have noticed that my breakfasts are often pretty similar. While eating a wide variety of whole foods throughout the day is the best way to get necessary nutrients, sometimes following a routine can provide a predictable baseline for healthy eating. For me, a healthy breakfast routine sets me up to make good dietary choices through the rest of the day.
Most days my breakfast looks the same:
My breakfast routine is packed with two nutrients that fuel me throughout the morning (protein and fiber), so I can be productive all morning without needing to stop for a snack. Plus my breakfast is packed with healthy fats and antioxidants. And, bonus: it tastes great and is quick to prepare.
The breakfast above provides the following:
Carbohydrates: 38g (including 14g of fiber)
Fat: 18g (only 3g saturated)
What are your usual go-to meals for breakfast? Do you follow a routine?
Today I had the best breakfast. Basically avocado toast (which I love) but today I added some additional protein and heart healthy omega-3 fats from some canned sockeye salmon I had stashed in my pantry. Alongside a grapefruit, this was really satisfying and a tasty way to start my day!
