Metabolism Boosting Breakfast Scramble

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.

Foodie Fridays! Carrot and Parsnip Fries

So in all honesty… how many times have you craved McDonald’s fries?

I can’t even remember the last time I had them! It must be almost 8 years ago.  

Nowadays, I’d much rather have homemade sweet potato fries, which I definitely make on occasion, but since whipping up this delicious recipe, my sweet potatoes can take a back seat!

These Carrot and Parsnip fries are amazing! They are loaded with beta-carotene (good for the eyes and heart) plus they contain a ton of fiber (good for the gut!). 

I have lots of clients currently going through my Metabolic Weight Loss Program and this is one of the many delicious recipes they get to enjoy. They all love it!

I mean, really, who would of thought to make fries out of carrots and parsnips!

It’s all about getting creative. My clients eat and lose weight by enjoying real whole foods and I like to get creative and whip up healthy and delicious recipes they can enjoy while following their meal plan. 

The best part is, if you’ve got kids, they will LOVE this recipe! Plus, having your kids watch you eat and enjoy whole foods will only set healthy examples for them. So eating fries (these fries!) is really a win-win for everyone 🙂

I’d love to hear from you! What favourite recipes have you healthified over the years? Share in the comments below. Are there any Foodie Friday recipes you’d like for me to share or create? Let me know!
