Your Healthy Start: Brekkie of Champs🏆

Feeling hungry by 10am? | Barely any energy left since 11am? | I’m so hungry, I could eat my workmate’s lunch! | My 15 min break is generally around 14:30 |  Is it 5pm yet? | What am I having for dinner tonight?

Above are many instances and feelings experienced because you have compromised on your breakfast in the morning. Sugary cereals or 2 apples for brekkie are certainly not going to cut it, I’m afraid!

In order for you to have a productive and efficient morning at work or on a day off, you need those nutrients that are going to give you and your family what you need to be at your best. Always ensure there’s an adequate amount of protein in your brekkie (or any meal for that matter). This will reduce the likelihood of you sneaking over to the bikkie tin mid-morning because you’re starvacious at 10am. We love eggs for breakfast. Plain and simple. And eggs are a fantastic source of protein, as well as omega-3, selenium, B vitamins, iodine, and vitamins A & D. If you can get them locally from a farm (or farmer’s market) where the chooks are free-range and preferably pasture-fed, then that’d be the best source. They’ll be super fresh and have the best nutritional profile. Otherwise, go organic or at least free-range. They’re also incredibly versatile so you’re less likely to get bored for breakfast. Here are a couple of our faves.

HEALTHY BREAKFAST: GREENS ON TOAST WITH AN EGG OR TWO

The greens can be baby spinach, kale, asparagus or whatever takes your fancy and you have on-hand. Kale and spinach are both ridiculously nutrient-dense and are key to the meal. Give your greens a bit of a wilt if you like (we do). And the eggs? Well, poach ’em, fry ’em, boil ’em, scramble ’em… mix it up!
As far as the toast goes, a nice gluten free loaf with a little something extra. Some seeds to boost the fibre, for instance. If you’re going to be eating bread, you might as well make the most of it. If you’re still eating gluten, I’d definitely recommend a good quality sourdough, possibly from your friendly neighbourhood artisan baker or farmer’s market. Sourdough is fermented slowly and is normally much better tolerated and digested by those with gluten sensitivity. Along with this, if you know who’s baked it, you can find out exactly what’s gone into each loaf (meaning there’s less chance of added ingredients you’ve never heard of).
Next, slice up some fresh tomato. Stack it all up, sprinkle on some turmeric, freshly ground black pepper and you’re hot to trot! Deeee-lish.
