Jumpstart Your Metabolism


START YOUR DAY OFF RIGHT
by Jumpstarting Your Metaoblism

Eating breakfast is more than important for so many reasons. You'll not only feel better after a 8 hour fast but you'll also give your muscles the needed energy to develop, burn fat and supply your brain with the needed nutrients for clear mental health.

Studies have shown that starting your day off without breakfast can lead to over eating later in the day. The best way to start your day is with an all natural breakfast consisting of protein and a complex carbohydrate. My favorite meal of the day is my breakfast for many reasons. It not only tastes delicious but it’s my fuel to get me through my busy day.

Carol’s Favorite Oatmeal Breakfast

1/8 cup steal cut oats
1/8 cup whole oats
Small handful of whole wheat
½ cup water

Bring to a boil then put on medium heat and ad ½ cup Vanilla Almond Milk

Mix in 1 scoop Vanilla Protein Powder
1 tsp cinnamon
Pinch of nutmeg

Stir and enjoy!

Oatmeal has many health benefits, not only is it a low glycemic food which process slowly in the digestive track but it may oatmeal also help lower cholesterol and reduce the risk of heart disease. The soluble fiber in oatmeal slows down your digestive process, which gives you sustained fuel for energy and you'll feel full longer. Oatmeal combined with protein also can help you lose weight. New research suggests that eating oatmeal may reduce the risk for type 2 diabetes too.  Oatmeal is also a great comfort food and warms not only your inside but your emotions as well.

That’s just a few reasons to start your day off right to ensure your metabolism is on kicked in to turbo charge. And remember to eat every 3 to 4 hours through out the day to maintain a high metabolism to create the body of your dreams!

Until next time Liv Fit, Train Hard & Liv Happy!
