|Egg whites sprinkled w. salt, pepper, and cayenne pepper. Toast w. almond butter (all natural of course). Huge mug of coffee!|
They good for you because:
1.) lots of antioxidants
2.) known to boost energy levels
3.) high in omegas
4.) contains amino acids
5.) source of carotenoids
The list goes on... I think I'm going to start putting them in a snack baggie and carry it around in my purse so I can munch on them during the day. Adding some almonds and granola would probably help with the taste as well. Others suggest putting the berries in water so they can soften up and not only flavor your water but also make the berries taste less tart. You can also put them in your hot tea in the morning, sprinkle them in cereals, pancakes, oatmeal, ETC...
Romaine lettuce, spinach, strawberries, tomatoes, peppers, and chicken slices with some ranch dressing and hot sauce on top.
I woke up this morning not feeling so hot so I skipped my workout and took Sonoma to the park. While there, I regretted not going and decided to go to a 1 p.m. body conditioning class. Although I was feeling lethargic on the whole bus ride there, I became more energized when the class started.
My recommendation is if you don't feel like working out in the morning, listen to your body and don't do it. Don't rule out not doing anything though and try a few hours later. You never know when you might get that extra boost of energy like I did!
