Ok, we are going to keep it simple today! Fresh fruit is the way to go!! Let’s talk about breakfast for a minute. Breakfast is by far my most favorite meal of the day. I typically eat the same thing over and over and over…. it’s either 2 boiled eggs, 2 pieces of turkey sausage and 1/2 an Ezekiel Bread English Muffin or Oatmeal. With summer in full swing, we can’t forget to eat fresh fruit!!
Let me just say this…It’s SO important to eat breakfast. Why?? Because you just slept about 8 hours and your body is starving! You need to break…fast! It’s so important to wake your body up and if you don’t eat some sort of breakfast, your body will not get off to a good start. Also – eating breakfast can help boost your concentration, energy levels and set you up for better eating throughout the day. And let’s talk about metabolism a minute. You want to lose weight and get healthy? Well, to keep your metabolism running at full capacity, you need to eat regular, frequent meals and that includes breakfast! So if you are not a breakfast eater, start with a small bowl of fruit! Make it ahead of time and eat on it for 2 to 3 days!
Below is a fruit salad I made in about 5 minutes and it’s going to last me those 2 to 3 days! Grab your favorite fruits and mix it up! Below are some suggestions:
Cut the fruit up into bite size pieces, wash them, stir together and place in a big bowl. Refrigerate and eat on for several days. Want to throw a bit of protein in this? Mix 2 to 3 Tablespoons of vanilla Greek Yogurt into your small bowl and you have a NICE breakfast!
See – quick and easy 🙂
