Talking about pregnancy cravings--Kelli craved spinach at 2am when she was pregnant, Natalie Grant is craving banana ice cream and Angelina Jolie says she craved onion rings and dark chocolate! What about you? Any pregnancy cravings?

Christine's fat-burning breakfast ideas and peach parfait recipe

3 Fat Burning Foods for Breakfast

 

1) Greek yogurt-

A recent study from the University of Tennessee at Knoxville found that people on a low-calorie diet that included yogurt lost 61 percent more fat overall and 81 percent more belly fat than those on a similar plan but without yogurt. 

 

2) Nuts and Seeds-

A study at Georgia Southern University found that eating monounsaturated fats found in nuts and seeds increases calorie burn for up to 3 and a half hours!

 

3) Fresh Fruit-

Eating a properly balanced breakfast that includes protein and low glycemic carbohydrates (unrefined, unprocessed) such as fresh fruit three hours prior to exercise may help burn more fat suggests a study from the Journal of Nutrition.

 

Try Christine’s Raspberry Peach parfait.  It’s made with Greek yogurt, pumpkin seeds, fresh peaches and raspberries.
