Breakfast Fuel

Notice how some days you have a load more energy than others?  For me I can directly see how it’s related to what I eat.  These here comprise my favourite, most energizing breakfasts.

First I start of with a homemade veggie juice (homemade is crucial – V8 or any other shop bought juice just doesn’t cut the mustard.  In fact juice starts going off within half an hour, so anything you buy in the shops is rancid, very acidic, contains no (or very little) live enzymes, and as a result just provides a sugar bomb).  This is kind of typical of the ingredients I use:

To Be Juiced

Starting the day with a burst of vibrant, vital nutrients from a homemade juice FEELS fantastic! This collection includes cavolo nero, celery (organic only please!), carrots, lemon, beetroot, ginger. Delish and detoxifying.

Half an hour later I have something like a salad and salmon (my favourite)….

… or an oniony or grated zucchini or parlsey egg scramble.  If using onions, saute the onions first, before adding the eggs.  If using grated zucchini or chopped parlsey, just whisk the eggs with a fork (doesn’t have to be a perfect job) and mix the greens in then just pour into an oiled (coconut, butter or ghee) pan and scramble.

Or a good old fried egg on a bed of baby spinach with fermented veggies – yummo!

Hopefully this inspires you to include something green and live in your breakfasts  – it’s quicker to prepare than you may think!  Give it a try and see it affects your energy throughout the day.
