Power up with a great breakfast!

Wednesday, September 1, 2010

Happy Hump Day!

I hope everyone is having a great Wednesday so far. I just finished eating breakfast, and it was absolutely delicious! I am definitely a believer in the saying, "breakfast is the most important meal of the day." If I don't eat a good breakfast, I never feel fully satisfied throughout the rest of they day. I try to make sure my breakfast includes carbs, protein, and a little bit of healthy fat. One of the lectures I went to this weekend gave the great analogy of fat being like glue. Healthy fats help all of the other nutrients you take in stick with you. This was great news since I recently became obsessed with organic crunchy almond butter! I have always loved peanut butter, but almond butter takes it to a whole new level! It is so rich and creamy; the perfect topping for almost anything (in moderation of course).

My new favorite breakfast dish is Blueberry Oatmeal:

1/3 cup whole grain rolled oats
1 packet stevia
Cinnamon to taste (I like a lot)
1/3 cup blueberries (I like to use frozen blueberries because they don't get destroyed when you stir up your oatmeal)
1 tbsp almond butter

Also, today kicks off the series 30 Days of Self Love on my friend Tina's blog. Today's topic is confidence. Check out what she has to say, and spend a little bit of time today reflecting on what you are confident about. Each of us has unique strengths and gifts we can share with the world. We should have confidence in our abilities and take pride in the qualities that make us unique. 

Food for thought:
What is your favorite power breakfast?
If you had to pick one thing, what would say you were the most confident about?

Yours truly,
