Today, I Will… 1. Eat a good, hearty breakfast
Have you ever woken up and thought to yourself, “If I have to eat eggs for my protein the umpteenth time in a row I may kill someone”? (Oh, that’s just me? I swear I’m not violent.) Sometimes I forget that eggs aren’t my only breakfast protein option. In fact, who said breakfast food has to be “breakfasty”? This morning, I sauteed mushrooms and onions in olive oil with garlic powder, oregano, chili powder, and a touch of sea salt. I try to include as many veggies as I can in my breakfast. Oh, and about a tablespoon of crumbled bacon with them doesn’t hurt ;) Then, I slabbed avocado on toast and topped it with turkey and low fat cheddar, melted in the microwave for about thirty seconds. Avocado is sooo good like this, trust me. And of course, strawberries rounded everything out.
And what’s that you spy in the glass (sitting on top of the cute paint swatch coaster I made)? That’s an apple cider vinegar elixir. Apple cider vinegar, if you don’t know, is hailed in the natural health community for numerous health benefits, ranging from digestion aid and eased menstrual cramping to fighting acne and heartburn. If you’ve ever tried drinking it on its own, though, you understand why many forego its benefits—I mean, the stuff is straight vinegar. I read on a favorite blog recently about how she combines apple cider vinegar with water, apple juice, and a touch of sweetener to get the benefits of the vinegar without the harsh taste. So, tada! I used honey instead of stevia and it’s mighty tasty. It’s still got that bright acidity to it, but I like that personally. It is definitely a good way to try apple cider vinegar if you haven’t before!
