Breakfast is definitely one of my favourite meals! In fact, I feel like you can eat ‘breakfast’ at any meal of the day.
I always love seeing the reaction of my clients when they see their meal plans. Most of them will find foods such as chicken or beef as a breakfast option on their meal plan, or a combination of specific nuts and seeds with certain fruits all as a way to ensure adequate protein. And of course, then there’s eggs! My fav 🙂
You might find it strange to eat chicken or beef at breakfast, but the thing is, breakfast is just another meal of the day, so any food can apply here. And protein is key!
In fact, if you’re starting your morning off with a bagel, cereal, granola, or a smoothie (that does not have adequate amounts of fat and protein), you can ensure you’ll be setting yourself up for some unstable blood sugar, combined with a slower moving metabolism, combined with a general feeling of fatigue later in the day.
Know what I mean?
What you choose for breakfast plays a key role in hormonal health and metabolism. If you’re struggling to lose weight or are dealing with hormonal imbalances, such as PCOS, PMS, diabetes, menopause, hot flashes, insomnia, fatigue, stress, acne, hair loss or estrogen dominance, you might want to take a look at what foods you’re choosing to eat to start your day.
And of course, this applies to all your meals. Every time you eat is an opportunity to support your health and hormones, so why not choose the best foods possible?
So what’s so great about my simple and delicious breakfast scramble? Well, aside from being simple and delicious, it contains a few key things:
- Eggs – which provide you with protein, healthy brain feeling fats and numerous hormone balancing vitamins and minerals
- Avocado – is loaded with vitamin E and monounsaturated fats, both of which are incredible for skin health
- Asparagus – contains glutathione, a potent antioxidant that keeps your skin youthful and is found in every cell in your body! It scours our body for toxins, free radicals and heavy metals that pose a threat to our health and well-being and gives them the boot!
- Spinach – is high in niacin and zinc, as well as protein, fiber, vitamins A, C, E and K, thiamin, vitamin B6, folate, calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, copper, and manganese – so basically, it’s a nutrient powerhouse!
This recipe is quick to make. I love chopping and prepping veggies a day before so they are ready in the fridge to add to recipes. Food prep is a life saver!
Enjoy the delicious and get that metabolism soaring! And if you’re looking for one-on-one support to lose weight and balance your hormones, fill out my online application here.
