Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Without a doubt, you have read or heard this line infinities times, right? If you follow me for some time you will know that one of my goals this year is to lose my extra pounds. I am currently attending 1-on-1 classes with a trainer and I am starting to see results. I’m very happy about it.
But let’s be honest, weight loss does not just depend on exercise. How many times have you started going to the gym, you kill yourself doing exercise, endure post-workout pain and after a few weeks you give up? It’s happened to me countless times, so this time the first thing I have done is to put myself in the hands of professionals to meet my goals, improving my diet and my lifestyle.
These dietary changes have begun with breakfast. For many years I have called breakfast having a cup of coffee and milk. Can you believe it? Well, happily with the help of my coach, this has changed 🙂
I must admit, it takes some time to adapt, especially when making a cup of coffee takes 2 minutes and a good breakfast may take between 10-15 minutes. The positive is that a healthy breakfast helps you take the rest of the day’s meals in a balanced composition and this helps a lot. Here are some healthy breakfast recipes that you could try:
1.Avocado Toast with Salmon: This is one of my favorite recipes. I used to eat it for lunch, but now I’ve incorporated it into my breakfast and added some cherries, tomatoes and red onion.
2.Yogurt with Fruits and Almond Clusters: I cook myself the Almond Clusters following this recipe, as I can control what goes in to it (less sugar, sodium and unhealthy fats). It’s delicious when served with coconut yogurt, strawberries and blueberries or banana. For recipe Almond Clusters, click here.
3.Strawberry Banana Crepes with Nutella: I know you’ll agree with me in that crepes are delicious, right? They remind me of Paris. I have a great recipe. For more information about the recipe, click here.
4.Eggs and Avocado. I’m addicted to any recipe that includes avocado. I’m not sure how this addition started, but I’m just hooked. I often eat avocado in salads with seared tuna. It’s delicious.
I do not like fried eggs, so I usually make them scrambled and I accompany this recipe with half avocado and pepper. Sometimes I combine the eggs with asparagus.
Note: These recipes are accompanied by coffee and fresh orange juice. All the ingredients I buy at the Fresh Market.
