Now, I didn't mean to shock you with that surprising revelation but there it is. It's out there. For the entire world to see. I love food.
I've never been the type of girl to turn up her nose at a meal, or limit my intake of food in order to lose a few kilos etc.
I've always eaten to fill the belly and even though, yes, I will admit I did have a run in with orthorexia for a while, I still ate a vast amount of food (even though it was all in my 'safe' and 'healthy' category).
See, breakfast is the time after you haven't eaten in multiple, multiple hours. Your body hasn't tasted the sweet nectar of a morsel of food all night and your taste buds are just starting to forget what the vibrant, zingy, zesty, fusgey, rich, spicy, refreshing, sweet etc. etc. foods taste like.
Breakfast is the time to rev up the machine that is your body, kick start that metabolism once again for the entire day and give your body the best possible boost to fly into all the challenges and opportunities the day has to offer!
Breakfast truly is brilliant isn't it?
Yes, well, try telling that to the girl I was on a shift with from 8:00am-2:00pm who hadn't eaten breakfast or even a single piece of food the entire time I was with her. And wasn't even hungry afterward...
I come across this way too often in my teen girl life and it really does sadden me. Not only are these girls (and probably guys too) restricting their bodies that give them so much back in return, but the havoc and damage they're playing to their bodies natural metabolism and daily functions is too important just to ignore.
Nope, this is a post about food.
Because as you know, we love food!
So, below I included some of my recent breakfasts. Not small insignificant bites of toast. Or a spoonful of cereal. Or a banana. (Seriously how do people get through their morning on that?!) Nope, below are my huge, hearty, nutritious and utterly delicious brekky's that keep me going from morning to noon:
Lemon coconut truffles with a massive cup of cherry greek yoghurt:
Even better when combined:
Lastly a tried and true brekky that can be whipped up in a flash and never fails to disappoint:
Into the Vitamix went 1 chopped frozen banana, 5 chunks of frozen pineapple, a small handful of frozen zucchini, handful of kale, handful of spinach, 3 big scoops greek yoghurt and some water:
Et voila! Extremely delicious and trust me on this- you cannot taste all those extra veg. Bonus!!
I guess it's a question that will continue to cross my mind for many more years to come but I just hope this post might in fact persuade even one person to change their mindset about the way they choose to begin each and every awesome day!
Are you/ have you ever been a breakfast skipper?
If you're a big brekky fan, what is the ultimate breakfast to you?
Favourite topping for pancakes? I think after topping mine with nut butter for so long, I can never go back to anything else!!
That's it from me today friendly friends. I hope you all have a great Friday!! Do something you love that you might not have done in a while and as always... EAT SOMETHING DELICIOUS!! Bye for now! :D
