Good Habits for Breakfast

Good evening!

Within this blog post I thought I would discuss my favourite breakfasts, as I think the first meal of the day is where it’s easiest to fall into bad habits. Firstly, I definitely am under the opinion that breakfast is the most important meal of the day! It should never be underestimated. I like to vary my breakfasts during the week as I can get bored with eating the same thing every day (I think many of us do)! It definitely helps that I love to cook, however I did used to be someone who would just grab the easy option (which was usually cereal). I felt awful eating cereals every day because I felt so bloated and groggy due to the high sugar content. However, when I started to vary my daily routine, I felt so much better and lighter! I also noticed a drastic change in my body, skin and weight. If you know me, you know I love looking after my skin and my skin care so it was definitely surprising to me when I saw how much your daily diet can change your personal appearance. When you eat and drink well, I think you glow but that is just my opinion! Anyway, back onto my breakfasts…

Weekday Breakfast

This is a breakfast that I have 2-3 days during the week (usually on my training days). As soon as I wake up, I drink a cup of water and make two scrambled eggs in coconut oil. I then prep my vanilla protein oats (30g oats, 150ml coconut milk and around 100ml water topped with a little Manuka honey, desiccated coconut and blueberries), and I take them to work to eat around 10:30am. I usually start to get peckish around 10am, so this breakfast suits me at work perfectly. I also love this breakfast because it’s easy and quick, so there are no excuses! Scrambled eggs take a matter of minutes and I sometimes even prep my oats the night before so I can grab and go in the morning as I do leave it last minute sometimes.

High Fat Breakfast

So, this is one of my absolute favourites as it’s great as a breakfast and a light lunch/or dinner! This dish consists of smoked salmon with a pea, onion and dill omelette. I got this idea from Madeline Shaw and I think it’s just gorgeous. I have this breakfast usually at the weekend, as I like to enjoy and take my time to make it. This dish is high in fats and the ingredients are always in my kitchen, so there is never a problem if I want it at last minute! I can honestly say that this dish makes me feel so light and fresh, so I would recommend it to anyone.

My Ultimate Favourite

So, we have finally come to my favourite breakfast! This plate has everything that I love on it… fats, protein and carbs! The ingredients for this dish consist of sourdough bread, smoked salmon, tomatoes and scrambled eggs topped with pumpkin seeds and chives. I usually have this twice a week and on my training days. It is great as a post workout meal as it has everything my body needs. I like to use sourdough bread as it has a lower glycemic index and is known not to spike your blood sugar as dramatically as other bread types. As you have probably noticed, I also like to have smoked salmon in the mornings as it is high in omega fatty acids which works wonders for my skin as well as my body! I would definitely recommend this breakfast!
