Good Morning You Guys and Gals:
This morning I’d like to talk to you about what you’re probably missing. Breakfast!
That’s right, judging from my conversations with many of you over the past few weeks, most of you, for one reason or another, aren’t breakfast eaters.
There’s no reason for me to explain why. You all have the…excuses, I mean,…reasons.
So today’s installment is as quick to read as it is to eat.
If you’re someone who can’t find time for a “normal” breakfast, try the following.
Over the weekend, or whenever it is convenient, cook up some Quinoa and black beans and have some whole wheat tortillas and low sodium vegetable juice on hand in the fridge.
Then, each morning, grab a tortilla, put a cup of Quinoa and a cup of black beans in the center, roll it up and eat it. Then, wash it down with one glass (8 ounces) of low sodium vegetable juice.
There you have it. Breakfast. Total calories 579. Total protein 28 grams. Total carbs. 102 grams. Total fat 7 grams.
Total sodium 395 mgs.
I know you think that’s a lot of food. And you should! Remember, your biggest meal of the day should be breakfast. So, if you eat four times a day and all of your other meals (3) are around 450 calories, you would be eating just under 2000 calories a day. If all of you did that, I am sure you would lose weight.
As far as the sodium content goes, remember the goal is to be under 2000 mgs. a day. Again, if you eat a total of four times a day and average 400 mgs. a meal, you’ll have ingested only 1600 mgs. – well below the goal.
So get up, get goin’ and get breakfast!
