Recipe Box: Healthy Breakfast Options

Now that I’ve moved in and settled, my next focus was on me – to get in the best shape I can for myself.  Unfortunately, I’ve learned that getting older means eating and exercising differently (goodbye French fries, pizza, and candy – I have no self-control).

A girlfriend of mine suggested I try Kalya Itsines‘ 12-week Bikini Beach Guide and Diet plan to get me in summer shape.  I started yesterday and it’s no joke.  However, the meal plan is amazing and I was never hungry throughout the day.  (As it turns out, I wasn’t getting enough calories.)

Below is a sample of my breakfast.  Since I can’t take credit for the recipes, I can’t post everything.  But what I will say is, in Day 2, I’ve not needed coffee once!

  1. Two pieces of whole grain toast, 1/8 of an avocado, 1 poached egg
  2. 7oz of non-fat plain yogurt, 1/4 cup muslei (Bob’s Redmill makes a great gluten-free one), 1 scoop of protein powder AND a smoothie of 250 ML of coconut water, 1/2 an orange, small handful of baby spinach, 1/3 cup diced pineapple, and ice.

I highly suggest you check out her website and order the guides – it’s $90 for the both of them, and it’s well worth it!
