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. .

A little of what you fancy is slways a good thing. Then you dont feel deprived or hanker after the forbidden any more.
Appetising and appealing food on a plate can be comprised of healthy low carb and protein ingredients. Including some good fats in your diet is better than eating low and no fat, as it can actually help your weightloss and help you feel satisfied.
The hormonal and metabolic benefits of eating more fat are great, but one of the best benefits might be the satiating effects of fat. Nothing is worse than eating a lower-calorie diet that leaves your hungry all the time. This is traditionally a huge problem in diets which deny you foods with a higher fat content such as nuts, fatty fish, cheese, and avocado.
Satiating fat leaves you feeling full. When the fat you eat hits your small intestine, it sets off a cascade of signals which includes the release of hormones such as CCK and PYY. These two hormones play a major role in appetite regulation and satiety; they leave you feeling full and satisfied. The more satiated you are, the less likely that you’re going to sneak in snacks between meals or pile on a second helping.
So for a weekend brunch I have cooked crispy free range streaky bacon, organic scrambled egg in a little organic salted butter, wilted spinach, baby Isle of Wight tomatoes, avocado, with some chopped red chillies.
And an Expresso coffee.
