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.

341 calories, 24 grams protein, 48 grams carbs, 9 grams fat

Regarding the question of regifting, I'd like to submit this thought for consideration:  If someone were to give me $20 for a birthday present and I am short on cash and use that $20 to buy another friend a gift, have I regifted? It seems to me that would have, but no one thinks anything about it.  Now, if I received a $20 pair of earrings in a color I don't care for but a friend of mine would wear, and I give them to her rather than take cash to buy her another pair of earrings, have I regifted?  Yes, but what is wrong with that?  We regift love, time, acts of kindness all the time and that is all a present is any way you look at it.  I see no harm in regifting if it is a gift that reflects and honors the friendship of the original giver and the new recipient.  From one set of hands to another...it's a good thing.  Thoughtlessness has no place with brand new gifts or regifted ones.  It's the spirit of the gift that makes it.

I got a chuckle about the re-gifting conversations. For many years, My family  re-gifted a fruitcake to somebody in the family. I think it even went to my aunt and uncle in Singapore. We always wondered when somebody would eat it, but I don't believe any of us had the courage!!

I used to think that you were supposed to regift as a little kid. In short, my parents always got a tiny pair of spideman pajamas as a gift
