Breakfast ideas on the run

Breakfast ideas on the run:

  • Smoothie; milk (I use almond but soy or other healthy alternatives great too), frozen chunky fruit, blueberries, spinach, protein powder (you don’t need to add this, I do, but milk already gives you protein) and use whatever else healthy you want to experiment with!
  • Oatmeal with blueberries (make extra and put in fridge and nuke it another day!)
  • Toast (Dave’s or any other healthy grain/whole wheat bread) with peanut butter, bananas), glass of milk
  • Cereal (remember 3-6-3 rule; look on the box; does it have 3 grams fiber or more, less than 6 grams sugar, 3 grams protein or more) add berries (so far Cheerios (plain) and Grape Nuts fit this; which other cereal does? 🙂
  • Pancakes/waffles (whole grain) with Greek yogurt and berries
  • Veggie omelet, whole wheat or grain toast

Do you stay the course or give yourself grace during the holidays?

My family and I celebrated the holidays; while I know roasted turkey is good for me and a “yellow” food, the rest of the food was “red”.  There were fresh veggies to munch on before dinner which is a “green light” food, but…decided to give myself grace today and I will restart my traffic light eating (green light; fruits and veggies, yellow light grains, fish, chicken, turkey and red light processed foods and junk foods) tomorrow along with working out at the gym!  I think life changes are a journey and I have a positive mindset to make my life healthier!  If you haven’t checked it out yet…please check out blue zone on Netflix (it’s free!)  I am working to toward being a ‘Blue Zone” girl! 🙂
