A BEAUTIFUL BODY STARTS WITH 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 www.christineavanti.com.
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.
