Happy Friday! Who has nice plans for the weekend? I’ve got the following on my calendar: a birthday get-together for our friend Isaac, a 5-mile race (wahoo!), and loads and loads of relaxation. Oh, and we need to buy a new dryer because ours went kaput on Monday.
Hah. Blurry jumpin’ baby.
I mentioned this earlier in the week, but I am really trying to transition away from sweet breakfasts. I have noticed that I feel so much better if I eat protein and veggies as opposed to a ton of carbohydrates and fruit. I never used to have this problem, but I suspect it has something to do with the calorie burn of breastfeeding compared with baby-induced sleep deprivation. The last thing my body needs in the morning is a heavy dose of sweets.
Don’t get me wrong… I’m sure I’ll still enjoy my pancakes and waffles every now and then. But I’m going to try to time those treats on mornings that I’m rested and satiated (sometimes, due to breastfeeding, I literally wake up at 4 AM with a growling tummy and have to go get something to eat… it’s crazy).
So – eggs, Crock Pot veggies, and toast. Makes me feel good from my head to my toes.
What’s your go-to breakfast for feeling energized?
