What to eat for BREAKFAST
“I am eating clean but….”
That is how many messages I get start. You are eating what you think is “clean” but you are wondering why you feel so hungry so soon later.
Here are some things I want you to know:
- I do not count calories or cut out whole food groups
- I DO balance proteins, carbs and fats
- I DO focus on volume with vegetables and fruits
- I DO eat for fuel, nourishment and healing and YES I enjoy my foods!
And MOST IMPORTANTLY, I DO eat a “mostly” unprocessed food diet.
What does that mean? Foods that once grew, in their most natural state. That DOES NOT mean to me that there aren’t a few ingredients in the foods. Take for example, they turkey sausage I show in this video here. There are 5 ingredients in it, all simple things like “Turkey” and “herbs” etc… no nitrates or fillers
Oatmeal IS a lot better than muffins, etc (I love it too ) BUT I still suggest balancing it with protein and fat AND watching it (and all grains) if you are dealing with pain, inflammation or auto immune (all things I navigate)
I eat a lot of vegetables throughout the day, fruit (yes I eat fruit), and fats mostly from avocado, nuts, or olive oil.
Protein for me is a big focus. I will have additional protein pre and post-workout as well. I aim for 100-120 grams a day
Here is a little more on that topic with a breakfast example
I have NOT done a good job the last few years sharing nutrition on social media- I think it’s because there are soooooo many opinions out there and I think I didn’t want to get into it lol I teach nutrition, fat loss as we age and more IN my programs and communities (like total body thrive happening now) But quick social post are too often taken out of context and MOST people aren’t reading my long explanation captions (like this haha) so TELL ME If you read this far.
I DO have two best selling books in stores “Unprocess Your Diet” and “Aging In reverse” where I go WAY deeper into the why and the research.
If what is working for YOU is working… keep going! You don’t need what I teach.
If what you are doing is NOT working, or it’s leaving you with cravings, fatigue, hunger, bloat etc you may want to explore this more. A great place to start is my 7 Day Jump Start
If you want me to share more like this let me know below! Ohhhh and SAVE this post for a breakfast idea!
