Have you ever looked at your weight, your lifestyle changes (“diets”), or what you’re eating on a daily basis. There are days when I feel I need carbs, carbs, and more carbs after a long stressful day. There are other days I feel satisfied with a salad and some protein for dinner. What’s the secret? Is there a secret?
To start the day, I usually have a glass of water. I always feel dehydrated after a good night sleep. I contemplate what it is I feel like having for breakfast since I am not one to schedule my meals on the weekends. Weekdays, I usually have a couple of options, but weekends, I like to be free to choose what and when. Today was a no-brainer. I immediately thought, “toast and almond butter with my No Buzz Buzz decaf coffee.” I bought a loaf of Sprouted Power bread about a week ago, and am only half way through the loaf!!!! I guess that’s a good thing, especially when each piece has 18 grams of carbs – 4 grams dietary fiber (14 grams carbs all together), and only 1 gram of sugar (Yay!).
Then, I thought, I have a craving for PB&J toast. Oh, no, no, no, no. Well, I’ve tried the less sugar fruit spreads (don’t like them – too watery). The Concord grape jam is my go to choice. However, it has too much sugar. I thought for a moment while taking a bite from the toast I had spread with a tablespoon of almond butter. Then my mind started racing, “Apples, Bananas!” No, No, No – still too much sugar. Then it dawned on me. “Why not sprinkle a little Swerve and some cinnamon on top!!” This was it – it was all I needed to get me through this morning – deciding on a “right choice.” I’m going to put this on my list of breakfast options.
List of breakfast options – What!! Yes, add it to a list you can keep on the refrigerator. Who has time to open their phone in the morning, look up the app and scroll through breakfast items. Again, some days I just want an option to choose.
Tell me about your options in the morning. I’d love to hear them.
