Breakfast and High Heels

I have never been one to be a breakfast eater. Over the past 20-some-odd years of my life, I have gone through stages of eating breakfast and not eating it. In all reality, breakfast food isn't really my favorite. Unless I get to have an egg every morning, nothing else is really appealing.

But now, with starting WW and trying to eat the way I am "supposed" to, I find that I have to start eating breakfast. But it's such a struggle to pick something out. At one point it was everything bagels with goat cheese. Or a banana. Or a Clif bar. And another thing, with WW I only have so many points, so I would rather "save" them for meals that I enjoy so much more.

But here are some benefits to eating a healthy (containing protein and/or whole grains) breakfast:

• it give you energy to start a new day,
• weight control (studies have shown that breakfast eaters tend to weigh less than breakfast skippers)
 - reduces hunger throughout the day
 - eating b-fast is part of a healthy lifestyle that includes making wise food choices and balancing calories with exercise.
• A more nutritionally complete diet, higher in nutrients, vitamins and minerals
• Improved concentration and performance in the classroom or the boardroom
• More strength and endurance to engage in physical activity
• Lower cholesterol levels
• Eating eggs may be one of the best ways to get your morning protein

So what does one eat with limited time?

sorry for the bad, upside down pic.
On another topic all together. Please look at my recent shoe purchase.

These beauties are 4 inch, patent "leather" pumps from Target. I think they are awesome. (and they kind of kill my feet)

  1. What to have for breakfast? A chocolate shake...SHAKEOLOGY!! ;) I never have to think about it. Just put a scoop in a blender with some water, ice, a little skim, soy, or almond milk...Presto...your healthiest meal of the day!

    Oh, and LOVE the shoes!
