What is the Best Breakfast Recipe?

I am not a morning person. Growing up, my favorite breakfast recipe was something we had on the weekend. During the week I kept my morning routine simple by not eating breakfast at all.  The truth is, my mother made big dinners, and we ate late.  I just wasn’t hungry when I got up.  When I was ready to eat at 10am, I was already at school. I learned to ignore being hungry and think of breakfast as something to have on the weekend. It was something fun, when there was lots of time.

Intermittent Fasting and Breakfast

Changing from the 5/2 intermittent fasting plan to the Leangains method, has led me to once again skip breakfast. Since I’ve fasting while sleeping, what’s a few more hours?


Why a Smoothie Bowl is the Best Breakfast Recipe

On the weekend I like to start the day a with a light breakfast, something both easy and delicious. I find a smoothie bowl perfect. It even looks pretty. It also leaves me feeling nourished and satisfied. I fill it with fiber and protein by putting yogurt in the smoothie, and then topping it with fruit, and either nuts or seeds. This time I added some coconut flakes too for a tropical feel.
