We took a few of our favorite healthy and savory ingredients to whip up a breakfast that would fill you up without slowing you down.
A fiber-rich dark leafy green rich in vitamins A and K, potassium, B vitamins, and not to mention fiber! Fiber is crucial to keeping our digestive systems happy, i.e. functioning optimally and regularly. Kale is great raw in smoothies and juices or lightly steamed, roasted, or cooked. I prefer cooked kale more than raw and recommend you consume it with a healthy fat like coconut oil, avocado, nuts/seeds, etc. to increase the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins in kale such as vitamins A and K.
Eating healthy fats like avocado is important for our overall health, whether we’re trying to balance hormones, nourish our skin and hair, or balance our blood sugars for disease prevention and weight management — healthy fats are where it’s at.
Egg whites are a great source of protein, actually, most of the protein that comes from an egg is in the egg white, but the egg yolk also contains minerals that are crucial to our health including vitamin B12, zinc, iron, vitamin D, choline, and vitamin A. Learn more about eggs here.
Balance is key
