Fine, but what can you do about it? Start with one thing. Add one good habit.
If you can only do one thing, start with a seriously healthy breakfast. No, this is NOT another “breakfast is the most important meal of the day” lecture. However, starting your day with a burst of nutrition will:
- help prevent sugar and junk food cravings.
- make it more likely you’ll make better choices throughout the day.
- provide sustained energy.
Since leafy green vegetables have more nutrients per calorie than almost any other foods, they make a fantastic breakfast. Make a huge salad, have a green smoothie or green juice, or enjoy a healthy choice like chia pudding with a green juice or green smoothie on the side.
Many of the nutrients in leafy greens are best absorbed with a bit of fat, so include avocado, coconut oil, homemade dressing with a healthy oil like hempseed oil, nuts, and/or seeds in the meal.
