For me September always signals change.
Change in your laid back summer attitude, kids going back to school, the return of traffic (at least here in Boston). So why not take this time to change your breakfast. What do you typically grab for breakfast? It is highly CARB based — bagel, fat free or low fat muffin, just coffee or heaven forbid NOTHING!
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and by adding a few more grams of protein, it will keeps us from indulging in sugary snacks later in the day. Here are some snack ideas:
- Scrambled egg whites with spinach and Ezekiel toast — don’t have time? microwave eggs while in the shower and stick in the toast
- Add some egg whites — don’t judge eggs are in all baked goods, why not oatmeal or protein powder to your oatmeal
- Plain Greek yogurt or cottage cheese with some fresh or frozen (non-sugar added) fruit or wheat germ.
- Whole wheat waffles and egg whites or Greek Yogurt or cottage cheese.
If you have any more breakfast ideas, I would love to hear them just post them in the comments below.
