Don't be a Skipper

So, you wouldn't NOT put fuel in your car, right?

Our bodies need fuel just like our cars need fuel.  Common sense - if we don't put gas in the tank, it doesn't run.  Period.  Same with our bodies.  You don't put food in your body, it will not function properly.

So, please don't be a skipper!  The saying "Breakfast is the most important meal of the day" hasn't stuck around this long for nothing.

For all my skippers out there, here are is a list of suggestions to fuel up in the morning:
1.  Greek yogurt, granola (mind your serving size!!), and blueberries.  Full of protein to keep you full!
2.  Kashi GoLean cereal with skim milk or two Kashi whole wheat waffles (frozen!)
3.  Whole wheat toast with peanut butter (mind your serving size!!)
4.  Of course, if you have time (HA!), eggs and turkey bacon!!
**And, always a great addition to any meal....fresh fruit!

I know all you moms are movin' so make sure you are filling up your "tank" so you can have a better workout, have more energy for your kids and not be a hungry, crabby wife.

  1. I do smoothies with unsweetened almond milk, kale and lots of fresh fruit. Yum!
