Breakfast of Champions

I haven't really talked at all about my nutrition or diet. The main reason for this is because I am not even sure that I am eating the right things for myself, so I don't want to give poor information to anyone else.

One thing I am sure of is ever since I started eating breakfast I have felt 100% better. There is something great about starting your morning off right. If you make a good choice for breakfast, chances are you will continue to make great choices throughout the day. Eating breakfast curbs my hunger until lunch so I don't snack as much, and even helps me eat less at lunch and dinner. I feel fueled for the morning and ready to tackle anything.

I normally aim to eat breakfast within 30 minutes of waking to kick start my metabolism. My favorite thing to eat in the morning:

3 slices of turkey bacon (60 cal), 1 whole egg and 1 egg white (120 cal), 1/2 small avocado (60 cal) ~ 240 cal

The bacon is pan fried with a splash of olive oil, and the egg is cooked in the oils left in the pan. I always drink a full glass of ice water with breakfast, I reserve my tea and caffeine for later in the day (usually at work).

It only takes me 15/20 minutes to prepare in the morning. A small price to pay for how great I feel after I eat it.


  1. That's a breakfast I would totally eat. I heart avocado. I just don't eat'd eat the fake bacon instead.

    I love me some eggers. Oh...sooooo...goooood!

  2. I never really had breakfast before work but now I have forced myself to eat when I get up and I totally agree with you, it helps start off the day in the right way. At the moment I am usually eating poached egg on a single piece of toast for breakfast or a BLT on a wholemeal bun. Yummy!

  3. The breakfast looked yummy - especially the bacon. Mmmm, I LOVE bacon :) Cheers, Rick

  4. That looks so good. I am in love with Turkey bacon!!!! Turkey bacon is my best friend, he is there for me through thick, very thick, and on my way to thin.

  5. mmmmmmmm I love avocado! I have never tried turkey bacon, but I like turkey sausage. You b-fast looks yummy!! :)
