I have been slowly transforming to a healthy lifestyle for the past year. I have come to love eating healthy and have many strong opinions on the matter. For instance, I believe in fueling my body with REAL food. But at the same time, i let myself have a treat every once in while. (People who never treat themselves bug me because they are just making their life miserable.)
Ok I'm going to do a little series of FAST, HEALTHY, AND DELICIOUS meals, each segment including some extra tips and tricks I have learned.
The series will consist of: breakfast, lunch, dinner, desserts/snacks
My first segment is: Breakfast.
Here are 6 of my favorite breakfast meals that are on rotation. It is SO important to start your day off right by eating healthy foods. I'm guilty of being a breakfast-skipper in the past. Shame on me!
FAIR WARNING: I may have gone a little over the top on the blueberries. But umm, I'm obsessed. they are so incredibly healthy for you. Seriously, like one of the best things you can put in your body. Oh, and they taste like candy! umm, hello?! why the heck would i not put them on...everything? Yes they are expensive but a small little container can really go a long way.
Turkey and Cheese Omelette: me and my husband have this at least twice a week- it is our favorite breakfast! I start by getting a couple slices of deli turkey and crisping them on a skillet. I then mix, salt, and pour 2 eggs on top of the turkey. let egg cook and then sprinkle with cheese: mozzarella is the best but I sometimes use a bit of cheddar too. Oh and the turkey is great because it tastes like bacon! mm :) Sometimes we add in some green pepper or spinach or other veggies! Omelettes are also very versatile!
Banana-Egg Pancakes: Oh my gosh it took me so long to finally try these. I was SO skeptical of these pancakes but i LOVED them. I combined 1 banana and 2 eggs together with a mixer. I then added a pinch of baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla, 1 Tablespoon flax seed (optional), and a pinch of cinnamon. Spray pan and cook on medium-low heat. They taste wonderful, but I still can't figure out how to flip them without destroying them. (they are very delicate). So, i stole this picture because mine usually look extremely undesirable. I ate them with a very light spread of peanut butter and that's it because they already have sweetness. They are DELISH and if you have been hesitant to jump on the no-flour pancakes bandwagon; now is the time to jump on because i'm telling you- you will never look back. These would be a PERFECT post-workout snack as well.
if any of you have any other good ideas or tips- let me know and leave a comment! Or if you try any of these let me know how they work for you :)
