You Need Your Breakfast!


*Eating breakfast boosts weight loss efforts by kick starting your metabolism.  Studies show that breakfast eaters have success at losing and maintaining weight loss compared to those who skip.

 *Improves concentration so you can move about your day with more intellect.  Research shows that people who eat a high fiber breakfast have better concentrations levels then those who eat a high fat breakfast. 

*Protects your heart.  One study noted that people who consumed whole-grain cereals had a lower risk of heart disease. 

Christine Avanti’s Breakfast Tips

1. Eat a balanced meal of lean protein and high fiber carbs, like her Spring Asparagus Mini Frittatas and a bowl of steel cut oats.  Find this healthy recipe at

2.  If you don’t have time for breakfast, grab a Kashi TLC bar, I love their peanut butter flavor.  It’s packed with good fats, fiber, protein and carbs.  Another quick option is Kashi Go Lean Hi Protein Cereal…it’s got 13 grams of protein and it’s loaded with all natural high fiber carbs.  Add some skim milk and you’ve got a breakfast of champions! 

3.  Eat breakfast within one hour of waking up so that you don’t have a energy crash and crave sugar later in the afternoon.

Addison Road update!

We were heartbroken about the terrible loss that the band Addison Road suffered this past week. While on tour with Sanctus Real, their RV burned to the ground and they lost everything. Thank you so much for praying for them, it's been a really tough time. But God is faithful!

God wouldn't let me sleep after hearing about this. He laid some friends of mine on my heart. Geoff and Jill Ludlow of Full Sail Ministries. They travel with their family in an RV spreading the word of God. I felt that God wanted me to call them and see if Addison Road could use their RV. Turns out, they didn't need it until June and after hearing Addison Road's story, Geoff jumped at the chance to offer them the use of their RV for the remainder of the tour!

Jenni shared that they were considering leaving the tour and heading home. They were even questioning their career choice. It's amazing to see how God can use us to make a difference! For Geoff and his family, it was sharing their RV. For you, it may be something different. We are all called to reach out to those around us and share the love of Jesus.

Thank you for praying. Thank you for making a difference!
