Growing up the only thing better than eating cereal for breakfast was eating cereal for lunch.
It was my absolute favorite thing to eat in the world, but today it’s the LAST thing I want to be eating for breakfast.
I remember the good ol’ days when I’d get home from preschool at lunch time and put on The Goonies (which is a fantastic movie by the way) all while eating a big bowl of cereal.
My how things have changed.
Nowadays I stay away from cereal, bagels and donuts for breakfast as a recently published study found it may cause more problems than just spiking your blood sugar.
The study published in Nutrition Journal found those who ate a high protein breakfast had reduced cravings for sweet and high-fat foods later in the day.
A high protein breakfast releases dopamine into our bodies causing feelings of reward. They found this “reward” reduced food cravings later on in the day.
And the less cravings you have for sweet and savory foods throughout the day will directly translate to you losing fat.
My Favorite Protein Rich Breakfast
One of my favorite meals for breakfast to make are eggs mixed with some veggies and hot sauce.
Oil up a pan with macadamia nut oil. Mix up 4 eggs in a pan over medium heat. Toss in some pre-cut mushrooms and peppers from Trader Joe’s along with some shredded cheddar cheese.
Then I’ll pour hot sauce over for taste while also giving my metabolism a boost to get the fat burning engines roaring.
In my humble opinion the chipotle garlic hot sauce by All Spice Cafe is the best sauce on the planet.
But if you don’t have enough time even for that I’d recommend picking up some Low Carb protein powder by Biotrust to quickly get your protein in without all the typical carbs you’ll typically eat for a quick-to-go breakfast.
There’s really no excuse for tossing a scoop of protein powder into a blender or shaker bottle and having a quick meal to go.
Just by adding a protein rich breakfast to your meal plan is going to be critical towards you dropping fat.
On the other hand if you skip it or eat too many carbs for breakfast you’ll actually cause yourself to be fighting an uphill battle the rest of the day.
This week I’m challenging you to eat a protein rich breakfast every day.
Progress is all about replacing bad habits that weigh you down with positive ones that enhance your life.
Replacing those old bad habits isn’t easy for anyone but with some hard work and proper planning you can do it.
We all stumble from time to time but it’s up to us to get back up and steer ourselves back in the right direction.
Feelings of guilt and shame for our backtracking is detrimental in the long-run so instead of feeling bad about ourselves for stumbling let’s try getting back up and with a determining voice say, “Let’s do this.”
