some people are just not big breakfast eaters (me). half the time i have a small snack (a hard-boiled egg, a slice of pcos bread, a piece of fruit) and the other half of the time my morning coffee is enough.
today’s breakfast was small but much more gourmet than what i am used to. i had:
- sauteed mustard greens from my csa with (organic) butter, salt, and ground black sesame
- cut up turkey breast from trader joe’s (2-3 ounces)
- coffee with (organic) whole milk and a little bit of nunaturals stevia (this is my standard morning coffee; i almost always make it at home)
it was delicious.
*since the fall of 2010 i have been an off and on paleo person. i really like it. my version of paleo aligns most closely with mark sisson’s (who calls it primal). do check his blog out if you are interested in caveman nutrition. the premise for the paleo diet is that we should eat the way our paleolithic ancestors ate – lots of meats, fish, and veggies; minimal to moderate fruit (mostly berries); no grains, beans, sugar.
the other half of my “breakfast” was 5 sun salutation A’s. a great way to start your day is to do some yoga sun sals or meditate for 5 minutes before heading off to work. it will keep you calm and prepare you for the challenges of the day.
