I hope everyone is having a fantastic week!
I hear frequently that breakfast is a struggle in the morning for many of you.
- what to make
- how to make something quickly
- what to have on the go
- whether to eat breakfast or fast through it…
We get it!
That’s why this week I’ve got some quick, easy breakfast ideas for you.
I personally don’t usually eat until later in the morning, if at all because I practice Intermittent Fasting .
The only times I have a bigger breakfast is if I have tennis at 11am or if I’m hungry :). Many of our clients have had great success using Intermittent Fasting- essentially a shortened eating window (to be determined by the client) and a longer fasting window. More info here:
So for some, this eliminates the concern about what to eat during the traditional breakfast window.
Regardless of when we break the fast, ideally we want to focus on proteins and fats as our main fuel source.
Let’s make it a great week!
