A lot of times a single small change is big enough to make a difference yet simple enough to stick with. You don’t need to overhaul your whole diet to see results you just need to be consistent. Trying to improve one meal works for many people and breakfast is the ideal candidate.
Try a different breakfast
Cereal with milk, yoghurt with fruits, or bread with honey and a glass of orange juice, sounds familiar? Even though these are not inherently bad breakfast choices, they all contain a lot of fast carbs that can spike your blood sugar and leave you feeling hungry very soon. That’s something you want to avoid when trying to lose weight, especially early in the morning. A change from such breakfast to something full of protein, healthy fats, and vitamins can be a game changer. The usual mid-morning hunger will be a thing of the past.
Recipe: Denver Omelette Egg Bake
This is a perfect example of a tasty breakfast that won’t affect your blood sugar and keep you full for a long time. You can’t do much better than a proper omelette for breakfast when trying to slim down. Total prep time is about 55 minutes but you will end up with 6 portions so it’s well worth the effort. One serving contains 17 g of protein, 5 g of cabs, and 11 g of fat.
