Zucchini Noodles with Chicken, Spinach and Parmesan
Okay, so now you're working & # 39; Good! How should you now get the most out of your workouts? Eat hearty, healthy, nutritious meals. Easier said than done, right? Not really. I have some ideas for meals that are light and delicious. And fast - I have a child at home, and he will only watch cartoons for as long as I cook.
Do I really have to say that you have breakfast? IT'S SO IMPORTANT! You have to start your metabolism first thing, to burn calories all day. I do not want to hear that you get up too early or are not hungry at first. I wake up at 5:30 for my first client and manage to have a good breakfast, so suck it up! Here are my favorites:
Protein shake: Make sure you get a protein isolate - it gives the best bang for your buck. Take a scoop of any flavor, mix with frozen fruit, yogurt without fat, milk, water, flax seeds, whatever you want. Nothing is faster, and you can drink it in the car on the way to work.
Homemade muesli: I invented this, because I wanted a healthy alternative to cereals, which I love. To all these cereal cracks out there - most are full of junk and haven't kept you full. I take a small handful of raw almonds, a small handful of raw, unsalted sunflower seeds and a sprinkle of raw oats and throw a cut apple on top. (You can use whatever fruit you like) I add a sprinkle of vanilla and some skim milk. It is delicious and simple. It will also keep you satisfied and full of energy until the next meal.
Egg whites: Yes, they are boring, but are pure proteins and extremely low in calories. Add some low-fat or low-fat cheese and vegetables to spice up your crawl or omelette.
Ezikielbread: You will find this in the health food section of your grocery store, usually frozen. It is good because it does not have gluten or wheat - it is made from freshly sprouted grains so that the body metabolizes them differently than regular bread. It is low glycemic and diabetic friendly as well. My fave is cinnamon raisin. You can toast with really natural peanut butter for a simple breakfast.
All other breakfast ideas are welcome! Please please stop eating fast food breakfast! Take some fruit or yogurt if you are in a pinch. But I think with a little planning that a healthy breakfast is easy and will make you crazy energy all day!
