Food for Thought
Hey everyone!! This week I have been trying out some new breakfasts that are a little more fat and protein based than your average cup of granola... Losing those extra "Christmas dessert" pounds are tough if you don't plan a few meals out! This month my focus is to lower insulin levels by decreasing my sugar intake, and eat prominently more Fat and Protein based meals, with VEGGIES replacing any unnecessary carbs! This will hopefully leave me with glowing skin and feeling tighter! This takes nothing away from all the yummies we are about to cook up :)
I know not everyone likes to eat breakfast, and I know for me, it's tough to eat right when you get out of bed at 5:30am! So if you want to mix up your "bulletproof coffee" diet ,(https://www.bulletproof.com/) try some of these ideas!
SUPER EASY TO MAKE! If you have a good blender, or a food processor, grab hold of a few chunks of cauliflower. (I just ground the whole head so I have extras for the next day) Grind it until it looks the size of small oats. This breakfast will keep you full longer than just your average cup of oats, as the coconut milk is high in good fats, as are the pecans. The hemp hearts will give you some protein, but feel free to also add chia seeds or powdered collagen for more. This meal is low carb, as the cauliflower VEGGIE substitute well as oats, so don't get your panties in a knot!
