What did you eat for breakfast today?
It’s common knowledge that experts recommend that you start each day with a healthy breakfast. But the question of what is considered “healthy” and the right kind of breakfast is a topic of debate within our society. Whether you are an early riser or a late snoozer, what you choose to eat for your first meal sets up your entire neurotransmitter production for the day; in layman’s terms, what you eat will affect how your brain chemicals communication information from your brain to your body and basically how you’ll feel throughout the rest of the day.
So what should you eat to ensure that you are setting yourself up to have sustained energy and mental focus throughout your busy day, while also keeping your body composition goals in mind? World-renowned strength coach Charles Poliquin created the “Meat and Nuts Breakfast” specifically for this purpose. It’s a pretty easy meal plan to follow; as the name explains, you simply have meat and nuts for breakfast each and every morning. By starting your day with meat, you’re setting yourself up for a slow and steady rise in blood sugar throughout the morning while the the nuts provide a great source of healthy smart fats that allow blood sugar to remain stable for an extended period of time.
