So I’ve tasked my specialty class participants (Mind over Muscle 2.0) with sharing their “ideal breakfast”, one they’d serve their loved ones. I’ve received the good, the bad, and the misinformed. Here is a quick response blurb to their efforts:
Below are links that are worth looking through as they relate to breakfast – a meat and nut breakfast that some high performing athletes swear by, by a coach that people swear by (Charles Poliquin), and a youtube nutrition expert’s down to earth thoughts on that style of breakfast. The second last are suggestions for smoothies options, and the last is a blog feed from Meghan Telpner (vegan nutritionista), who I follow respectfully. The blog feed has lots of goodies mentioned from a very responsive crowd.
Please look into the first two and use the pair as an example of how to evaluate any advice/diet/review/nutritional information you come across. I never subscribe to anything and say it is the end all and be all unless I have tried it through and through, and even then, I am weary to advise it to others.
Main point: Achieving the best breakfast for you is exactly that… FOR YOU!
Experiment, try the options our 2.0 teammates have been offering up, and if it works for you (meaning you feel amazing after eating it), then you are one step closer to figuring what your body needs and benefits from. The ideal breakfast is individual to your needs and wants and must be meticulously balanced with the rest of your life, day to day.
Enjoy food as fuel and fuel as freedom.
