Feed the Engine

 pancakesPancakes, waffles, french toast … fluffy white stuff …

We can do so much better than this for breakfast. The addition of fruit – soaked in sugary syrup – butter and whipping cream certainly doesn’t improve the situation.

Every morning we have the opportunity to feed the engine.

The engine is our metabolism. Feeding it the best possible fuel yields the best possible results, including weight loss.

smoothieIn Tuesday’s blog, “Breakfasts for Weight Loss Champions” I made the case for starting the day with a breakfast consisting of 20 grams of protein and complex carbohydrates in the form of fruits and / or vegetables. This combination fires up your metabolism and fuels your morning activities, including a workout! I also included the recipes for my pre- and post-workout smoothies.

Thursday’s blog, “Breaking Bad (Breakfast Habits)” examined some of the breakfast foods that are a part of our Standard American Diet (see top photo above). Many traditional breakfast foods – even cereal, a classic at the American breakfast table – are substandard options due to a lack of staying power.

If pancakes, waffles, bagels, muffins and the rest of the fluffy white stuff are out as comfort food, what’s in? This week’s video walks you through my super simple “Broccoli Cheddar Soup” recipe, which proves the point that comfort food needn’t be fattening to be satisfying. In fact, there are six healthy comfort food recipes waiting for you in my new downloadable eBook “Soup’s On!” It’s my gift to you to get you through these last few weeks of winter.

You achieve success one decision at a time. You succeed at weight loss one meal at a time.

Feed the engine. One meal at a time.
