Breakfast is for Champions

Breakfast is for Champions!!
Today’s meeting topic was about the most important meal of the day!
We talked about the benefits of a balanced breakfast with power foods.
That really is the key! Sugar just won’t cut it or get you anywhere.

We all know some or most of the benefits of eating a healthy balanced breakfast-gives you energy and you get nutrients for good health. But one that I hadn’t really thought of much was that study’s have been shown that it helps to avoid overeating later in the day-also saving you LOTS of calories! 😉

We brainstormed a lot in class and I personally LOVE it when we do that cause its so  awesome to get new ideas and recipes that way.

Some ideas that were shared:
yogurt parfait ideas
WW oatmeal
Vegetarian english muffin with veggies & cheese
protein pancake -which Lexy shared HERE.
southwest eggs on corn tortilla w/salsa
banana with pb & honey (in a cup for in a rush)
greek yogurt with granola…..

A couple of challenge questions for this week:

1. A new breakfast I will try this week is____________________.
2. When I am in a rush I will__________________.
3. On days when I have time I will_______________.

I love breakfast and breakfast foods!
These are some good challenges and things to think about this week!!
I will definitely be applying these questions to my life to be prepared and add more variety so I don’t get burnt out on my daily’s.
I also need to be reinforcing this to my kids so they learn and feel the importance of this behavior at a young age!

Motivational Quote of the Day:
Breakfast…..Don’t leave home without it!

About Carman

36 year old military wife of 18 years and stay at home mom to 4 incredible kids (3 girls ages 17, 11, 11 and our son is 6). After my 4th, and final baby, I decided I wanted to be more active, healthier, happier, and to be an example to my kids. I joined Weight Watchers and started using the Points Plus program to learn portion control, moderation, and develop healthier habits. I also used the dietSNAPS app to track my meals and it was such a life changer for me to literally *see* what I was putting in my body! Cyndi, Lexy and I created this blog to be accountability partners and that has been a huge key to this journey! I love to cook and I love converting my favorite recipes into a healthier version for my family to enjoy! I love the after effects of exercising :) I love challenging myself to fitness goals to change things up and in doing so I have run numerous 5K/10K's, several half marathons, one full 26.2 marathon, and a Tough Mudder. I love circuit training, weight training, and running sprints. My goal is to inspire others to take their health seriously, and to show how small changes can lead to big results.
