Breakfast of Champions

My breakfast everyday - 5 eggs (1 yolk), 1/2 of a Sweet Potato and 1/3 of an Avocado
Totals Calories = 378
Fat = 19 grams
Carbohydrate = 37 grams
Protein = 26 grams

Do you remember the slogan "breakfast of champions" by wheaties cereal? Well, if Wheaties (or any cereal) is your breakfast of choice you might find this post interesting and life changing.

The majority of our clients at TWC are 18-65 years old, so the days of Wheaties being the "breakfast of champions" are long gone. That might have application to kids, simply because it is better than a pop tart or a donut for breakfast. But it is still not ideal for a kid, there are better options.

Breakfast, and every meal, should be a balance of Protein, Carbohydrates and Fats...the three macronutrients that give your body energy (also known as calories). If you look at the nutrition breakdown above you will see just that - a balance of carbs, protein and fats. Also you will notice that the foods are "single ingredient items", meaning they are 100% additives or preservatives. Wheaties on the other hand has tons of ingredients.

I know it is weird at first to combine foods like this, but when you master the balance of the "macronutrients" at meal time you will wonder why your abs are showing and your waistline is shrinking.
