Hi Happy Tuesday!!
I have been incorporating more workouts to my week, let's just say mama needs a change. But that means less time to blog. I guess it all comes out to a better day organization! Promise to get better at posting more.
That being said...
Today is all about my favorite Breakfasts, specially boosting energy ones. This is what I usually eat after my workouts.
What you are looking for is to balance your meal, doesn't matter if it's a smoothie bowl or healthy tacos.
You want to see protein (it could be vegan) + carbohydrates (healthy options!) + healthy fats
Why do you need all three??
Every single source helps and mantains your body healthy, in a unique way. Protein helps to replenish and heal your muscles after a work out, carbohydrates help restore your energy, and fats regulate your hunger hormones, so you feel satisfied for longer periods of times.
Next, let me show my fav four breakfasts, all easy, simple and delicious! You know how I roll!
Veggie Egg Scrambled
The easiest breakfast! Add veggies to a pan, sauté with olive oil, sea salt, pepper. Next, add your eggs and voila! Try to add different type of veggies, to add different nutrients, colors and flavors.
Accompany your eggs with fresh fruit berries are my favorite and some avocado slices and you are ready to nourish your body.
Egg Breakfast Tacos
Who doesn't love tacos?! No one said, ever!
Make the tacos your own, you can make them vegan as well with black beans and veggies. Start by making scrambled eggs, once ready, heat your Siete Foods (my favorite brand; made with almond flour and coconut flour) tortillas, add eggs, avocado, salsa, black beans, parsley for some extra flavor.
You are like me, always craving something sweet?! Add fruit to your plate.
Yes I can't stop talking about Smoothie Bowls, but they are quite delicious and very well balanced just what your body needs!
First, choose the flavor of your smoothie, for one serving add: 1 cup choice of frozen fruit, 1/2 frozen banana for a more creamy consistency, 2 tbs peanut butter, 1/4 cup avocado, 1/2 tbs honey, 1/2 tbs chia seeds, 1/2 tbs hemp seeds + any other super food that you might want to add. Add 1/4 cup almond milk and blend.
Toppings: I use the same fruits I used for the smoothie base, but fresh, and add: honey, 1/2 tbs peanut butter, chia seeds, hemps seeds, cacao nibs, Gluten Free granola.
Steel Cut Oats
You know you can always count with your good old oatmeal for breakfast! You can always prep a night before to take on the go.
To prep, boil almond or coconut milk, add Steel Cut Oats (Bob's Red Mill is the brand I use), coconut palm sugar, vanilla extract, and cinnamon.
Once ready, top with blueberries, cacao nibs, chia seeds and your favorite GF granola.
I hope you guys enjoy these boosting energy breakfasts suggestions, and have a chance to try them out!

Lots of love,
