Complex carbs take longer to digest than simple carbs helping you to feel fuller longer with less blood sugar spikes keeping your energy levels constant. Especially when you got up to work at 5.30am and feel like you’ve had a whole day by midday!
2 organic eggs (protein) fried in Waitrose bought organic butter, ( good fats) organic multigrain and wholewheat bread ( complex carbs) from the local bakery.
Streaky Duchy of Cornwall free range bacon ( protein)
Wilted spinach ( great spurce of iron)
Avocado (oddly it’s a fruit and is also full of good fats )
Some fat in your diet is good for you and also helps you feel fuller longer. .
My human’s breakfast is the healthier one of the two on the table with the poached eggs(protein) with smashed avocado(good fats) on granary toast(complex carbs-low glycaemic index that helos keep blood sugar levels more constant) and crispy bacon( protein). And an Espresso coffee
The other is eggs Benedict (white muffin-simple carbs-not so good has a high Glycaemic index which creates blood sugar spikes) hollandaise sauce-eggs and olive oil protein and good fats if made with extra virgin olive oil- not made with a mix of processed and refined oils). And an Americano coffee. The black expresso is a better option. .
Hot water and lemon first.
Avocado on sourdough toast (complex carbs)
Poached eggs ( protein)
Watercress ( iron)
A single Espresso coffee (better with food than on an empty tum as it affects your own natural energy resources)
Usually wheat free but today fancied a snall slice of sourdough toast with smashed avocado and some mixed seeds sprinkled on top. Good carbs and healthy fats.
Organic scrambled eggs for protein
Smoked salmon for Omega3
A small grilled tomato.
Lasted all day on this big breakfast until an early supper.
Scrambled eggs, avocado, tomatoes, mushrooms, and spinach or Kale ( your choice) . All cooked in organic butter or coconut butter.
Hot water and lemon for liver cleanse to start and an Expresso coffee after.
A cheese mushroom and spinach omelette .Yes you may have spotted Ketchup in the photo.
Although Ketchup has sugar which I exclude from my own eating regime and recipe suggestions, just sometimes a little taste of what you fancy is better than total denial so you dont crave.
