The Pulse

Breakfast Opportunities

We hear it again and again, “I have the same thing every day”, “I don’t have time”, or the dreaded “I wanted the extra Sleep” …

The difficult part of hearing these refrains so often is that they represent missed opportunities for Improvement and Enjoyment!

Breakfast is typically your first occasion for Success each Day (2nd if you have Made Your Bed!), so we encourage everyone to Make the Most of It…

Rather than Focus on how those Excuses can Limit our Success and Hold you Back, let’s see what we can do to Springboard your Strengths…

 

Here is our Plan for Breakfast, in Simple Steps:

          1) Know what you are Eating before you go to Bed the night before.

We recommend a 4-Breakfast Rotation for Maximal Health and Minimal Stress (always a Good Combo) …

          2) Eat Your Big 3!

Get your Protein, Carbohydrate and Fat so that You are Fueled Up and Ready for the Day…

          3) Taste Matters, & It Should Taste Good!

If your Breakfast is Super-Healthy but Uber-Awful, it wont last. Find your Favorite Flavors, combine them with different Textures, and don’t be Afraid to Try New Things!

          4) Variety Matters

Eating the “Same Thing” everyday does 2 things that far outweigh how “Easy” it is for you: First, there is no “Perfect Meal”, so eating the Same Thing means you are Missing the Same Things, in terms of Nutrients, Vitamins, etc., each Day. Balance is an important Concept in Nutrition, and Life, for a Reason. Second, You will “Get Sick of It”. Everybody says they won’t and then they do. Everybody. With no Variety, even your Favorite Meal becomes something you dread, and once you are tired of eating the same thing, you have lost that Meal for a long time…
