A healthy breakfast … is worth it!

great breakfast

Hope you’re not one of those people who skip breakfast and although I can easily exchange a protein shake or fruit smoothie for some good old scrambled eggs with bacon this photo shows one of my best breakfasts ever. Unfortunately there was no-one with me to enjoy it as I was relaxing at the airport during a layover between South Africa and New York en route to Barbados.

Doesn’t it look absolutely divine? Freshly squeezed orange juice, granola with yogurt and fruit, all topped off with a nice cup of coffee.  One word: yummy! Admittedly my breakfast does not look like this normally and that’s why I savored every last mouthful to the max 🙂

Eating healthy takes effort and planning, and that extends to making sure you have a healthy breakfast every day. It may be easier to eat toast or a sandwich but is it the best thing for your body (especially if it’s like mine – made of mostly hips and thighs)? Is munching on an apple enough or do our bodies need more? I am honestly not sure but I usually have a cup of green tea or a protein shake followed by an egg either boiled or scrambled with bacon and veggies like sweet peppers.  On super days I have what’s shown in the photo – because that’s one of the benefits of travelling all over the world and eating on the go.

But what’s your favorite breakfast?  Do you eat healthy every single day? What’s the healthiest breakfast you’ve ever had? Please share!
