Breakfast with a twist

Today’s take on healthy, balanced and nutritious breakfast. I got up early – busy day ahead with 10k run – did my usual stretching and foam roller exercises. By the time I finished, I was very hungry.

My breakfast Menu on Saturday morning:

Scrambled eggs with few cherry tomatoes, pepper, spinach and some chia seeds (fried in a little bit virgin olive oil).
And of course I cannot start a day without having grapefruit (I also added one kiwi). So here you go, you have healthy start to the day. And you get all three macronutrients – protein, healthy fat, fresh carbohydrates. I had fruit tea with my breakfast and save my cuppa of strong tea for later (strong teas/coffee destroy iron).

Did you know that Chia Seeds are a good source for “healthy” fat and fibre, which are essential in human diet and body? Those tiny seeds can help in weight loss programme as those “healthy” fats keep us full for longer. Chia Seeds = Super food!
You can get Chia Seeds in the whole food section of the supermarket or in Health Shops (or online).
