This week, we celebrated Wellness Wednesday with Local 4 News! Quite often your morning breakfast, coffee routine or lack of workouts could be jeopardizing your weight loss.
Stacy’s Top 5 Breakfast Tips for Changing Up Your Morning Routine
1 Pump up your oatmeal. Add nuts, seeds, nut butter or even a scoop of protein powder to boost the protein to keep you feeling more full and satisfied. Skip the instant oatmeal and opt for probiotic, high fiber and protein filled oatmeal options.
2. Swap out your cereal with empty calories and carbs to for one that has more protein and fiber. Mix with or replace with high protein cereals.
3. Replace your morning bagel or muffin for an egg sandwich. You will increase your protein and cut down on the carbs and sugar.
4. Make sure your protein bar is providing you with enough energy to last throughout your morning workout or meeting.
5. Swap out your “light” or “fat free” yogurt for one that has no artificial sweeteners and opt for a higher fat version. Look for less than 8-10 grams of sugar per serving and add nuts and seeds for crunch and healthy fats. Stacy’s favorite yogurt is Siggi’s Icelandic Yogurt or Fage Greek Yogurt.
