In 2007, I decided that it was time to ditch the morning coffee. My most challenging thing was the fact that I was never hungry when I got up and so I didn’t want to eat anything and all I wanted was coffee. And those of you, who love coffee, know that tea is not a replacement for coffee. Tea is tea 🙂 right?
So for years and years it was only coffee which I drank. It held me “well” until 11am kicked in, I wasn’t only hungry, I was depleted, I was weak, and my mood was not the most pleasant one either.
So I changed the habit. My first leading thought was how can I just replace the coffee with something that is better for me? With something that would not just give me a kick, but support me and set me up for a good day with a stable mood and with a healthy functioning body, both physically and emotionally. Where I can think clearly and be focused.
I began to have different kinds of protein shakes where I would add some more good stuff in it and I started to feed my body better. Throughout the years, both the foundational shake and the goodies I put inside it have changed. At one point, I was having strawberries in my shake, but learned that they are pretty high in sugar and they make my shake a bit sour, so I let them go.
Breakfast – The Most Important
Meal Of The Day.
We’ve all heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. I heard it even as a child. But what could I do, I just wasn’t hungry.
Transitioning over time by experimenting and creating a nutritious and delicious shake to replace my morning coffee was a wonderful gift I gave my body. It didn’t feel like a full breakfast, it was just a drink replacement and on the way I got some nutrients, too.
I think that I paid a price by not having a good breakfast growing up, but after all my healing studies; my breakfast is the foundation for a healthy day and a healthy life.
Since I shot this video, I made some changes to my shake. This is what I currently do:
A scoop and some of V-Shake (pea-based, not whey)
1 Tbs of coconut oil (organic)
¼ Tsp of Xylatol
½ Tsp of Cocoa powder (organic)
1 Tsp Flax Seeds (organic)
1 Tbs of Collagen
A couple of frozen blueberries (organic)
3 Slices of banana (frozen, cut in advance, organic)
2.5 Cups of Filtered water (room temperature)
And ice cubes
Some days a raw egg (organic)
Some days some spinach (frozen, organic)
You can add other kinds of berries that are filled with antioxidants and other ingredients, like coconut water or almond milk, to give your morning protein shake a personal touch.
You Can Change EVERY HABIT You Set Your Mind On Changing.
After years of letting that habit go, my body does not like the caffeine anymore. But at times, even though I love my shake, on the weekend or on vacation, I still have my coffee, always decaf and weak, and it always comes with food.
I’d love to hear what you are having for breakfast and if you were inspired by mine in any way, shape, or form.
