Breakfast Recipes

Eat protein for breakfast!

Dietary protein is the raw material that tells the liver to get in gear. If we don’t take in adequate protein, metabolic functions slows. Our metabolism can increase by up to 30 percent for as long as 12 hours from a high protein meal, the calorie equivalent of a 5 km jog! A high carbohydrate breakfast such as juice, cereal, pancakes, waffles, or bagels does not enhance metabolic rate. Further, eating such a meal can spike insulin levels, leading to to energy fluctuations and sugar cravings. Start your morning off right with one of these healthy treats!
