YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT
Every 35 days, your skin replaces itself and your body makes new cells from the food you eat. What you eat literally becomes YOU.
The report is due in two hours. Or perhaps you’re in the middle of a mid-term exam. Or you’re making sales calls. Suddenly, bam! Around 10:30 a.m. you hit a wall. All you want to do is cawl back into bed.
Hmmm…what did you eat for breakfast?
I hate to say, “I told you so,” so I’ll turn to Mom, who has said it countless times: Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It’s the meal that’s designed to supply a third of the macro and micro nutrients your body needs to run without a hitch.
So what are you eating each morning to do all these things? A cup of coffee gulped down on the go? A cup of sugary yogurt and a muffin eaten at your desk? Nothing at all?
Your body deserves so much better than that – and so do you!
When you eat a good breakfast, your day goes smoothly. No growling stomachs, low blood sugar shakiness, or wandering attention to keep you from nailing those big goals you’ve made for yourself.
What Breakfast is Right for You?
One of the best—and most fun—ways to find out which foods serve YOU most powerfully is something called the
Breakfast Experiment. For one week, eat a different breakfast each day. Record in a notebook what you ate, how you felt immediately after the meal, and how you felt again two hours later.
- Day one: Scrambled eggs or tofu
- Day two: pancakes or waffles
- Day three: Oatmeal
- Day four: Boxed breakfast cereal
- Day five: Muffin and coffee
- Day six: Fresh fruit
- Day seven: Pumpkin smoothie
We have become a society in need of instant gratification & reach for the quick pill to make us feel better. How about reconnecting the mind & body? Instead of reaching for an anti-acid or analgesic for symptoms such as headaches, gas, bloating, moodiness or brain fog, look at your plate.
Feel free to repeat the experiment for another seven days with different foods each morning. Which breakfasts made you feel energized? Which ones didn’t? After the experiment, try adding in more of the foods that made you feel great!
