Whats For Breakfast

Recommended Posts

I don't often eat breakfast anymore. The idea of needing carbs at every meal is that got me to the extra 40 lbs. I've been carrying around for all these years!

When I did... I'd slather peanut butter bewt. rice cakes... or smush a ripe banana betw. 2 waffles and eat 'em on my way to work. Sometimes I'd have yogurt and chopped nuts.

You shouldn't skip breakfast if you are trying to lose weight! eating in the morning kick starts your metabolism! i handn't thought of peanut butter on rice cakes..i'll give it a shot.

VERY coincidentally, I'm multitasking and currently listening to an educational health seminar while checking this discussion thread (we get a discount on our health insurance if we listen to these things every month - it's thru my husband's employer). This month's topic is the importance of eating breakfast. We hear all the time that people who eat breakfast weigh less - and part of it has to do with your insulin resistance. Here's what I'm listening to at this very moment: "periods of fasting, which occurs when you skip breakfast, increase the body's insulin response, which in turn increases fat storage and weight gain."

I've gotten into the habit of having half coffee/half milk in the morning, telling myself the milk counts. I need to get back into eating breakfast!

This mornings breakfast was a shrimp taco: stir fried veggies, shrimp with chopped radish, onions and avocado. It was leftovers from last nights dinner.
