Monday Morning Fuel

"Breakfast like a King, Lunch like a Prince and dine like a Pauper"

 I enjoy being up early in the morning, smelling the freshly brewed coffee that was preset the night before and going over my checklist for the day.  Spicy eggs with arrugula, cilantro, tomatoes, avocado, and a small amount of Olive Oil.  I find the sweetness of the peaches to offset the 'kick'.

Scrambled Egg Taco- Gluten free tortila, heirloom tomatoes, jalapños, avocados and orange cherry tomatoes.  These dishes will rev up your morning.  Que Tenga Un Buen Dia!

Fage Nonfat Yogurt with blueberries, peaches, strawberries and cinnamon on top.  This is my simple, nutritional go-to.  When you add fresh fruit there is no need for flavored yogurt.

You can also include organic granola, this will give the yogurt that crunchy texture and, of course, adds great flavor.

Bob's Red Mill Oat Bran Cereal is my #1 choice for hot cereal.  It's high in fiber and provides a sure-fire way to start your day right!  Studies have shown that diets low in saturated fat and cholesterol and high in fiber, specifically the soluble fiber found in oat bran, may reduce the risk of heart disease. I've also included flax seed oil.  Flaxseed provides you with plant omega-3 fatty acid and may help with symptoms of menopause and help lower cholesterol.   Ladies take care of your heart, you are important.  How about adding yummy raspberries, blackberries, blueberries with a slice of papaya.  Finish off your presentation with a touch of rosemary.  

Don't forget to Be Grateful...
