What Do You Eat for Breakfast?
**Disclosure: This is a post written by me on behalf of United HealthCare. All thoughts and opinions, as always, are my own.
People always say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It really is true. What you put in your body first thing in the morning sets the tone for the rest of the day. This month’s photo challenge from Souce4Women is to upload a picture of your healthy breakfast. This one is a fun one for me because I consider breakfast to be one of my favorite meals.
If you’re unfamiliar with Source 4Women, it’s a community created by United Healthcare that provides healthy living information on things like nutrition exercise, health screenings and more for women. Every month they do a photo contest to encourage you to live a healthy and active lifestyle. I suspect that this month’s challenge might be tied in with March being National Nutrition Month.
One of my standard breakfasts is a green smoothie. I was recently introduced to brazil nuts by a friend and thought they were delicious. I decided to add a couple to the Nutribullet and grind them up along with almond milk, spinach, 1/2 banana, dates, and ice to make a green smoothie. It was delicious! Here is the photo I uploaded to the gallery this month:
I always love breakfast because I think it’s one of the easiest meals to eat healthy. Some of my favorite breakfasts are two eggs (hard boiled or fried) w/ spinach or sausage, a green smoothie, gluten-free smashed avocado toast, or greek yogurt with blueberries. The avocado toast is a new one I just discovered recently and it is also very good.
Here are some more fun photos from the gallery that I liked this month:
