What is a Brainy Breakfast?

One of the tips I share with you as a Certified L.E.A.N. Health Coach is to eat a brainy breakfast daily to kick off your day right! The standard formula is 3:6:3. At least 3g of fiber, no more than 6g of sugar, and at least 3g of protein. Of course these are guidelines, so stick to the formula as much as possible. 

I wasn't always this way. Matter of fact, I disliked eating breakfast and would almost always grab a honey bun or cookies. I did this through my late 20s. You know the invincible era? No wonder I had GI issues - I can attribute that to the amount of sugar I consumed from a small child until I reached my third decade. I still enjoy sugary foods but I do my best to control the ingredients. I regress a bit. 

While I've been on the Clean Transformation Challenge, I have learned to like breakfast and have actually been looking forward to eating (or drinking) it most days! This day I served up some steel cut oats sweetened with 1/2 tbs of pure maple syrup, 1 tbs of hemp seeds, and 1 tbs crushed sliced almonds. Delicious!! I served honeydew on the side. I'm a bigger fan of having fresh fruit on the side of my warm cereals. This dish packs protein, iron, and fiber!
