Energy Boosting Breakfasts

Breakfast increases your energy by restoring depleted liver glycogen stores from your overnight fast, suppresses your counter regulatory stress hormones so you feel more calm when you start your day, programs your body to burn energy all day instead of store energy, and increases cognitive function so you feel on top of it instead of foggy minded.

Overnight oats: Mix ½ cup rolled oats, ½ cup almond milk, ¼ cup yogurt, 1 teaspoon chia seeds, vanilla, and a pinch of sea salt. Mix it up, put it in the fridge and then in the morning top with fruit and nuts/seeds and nut butter.

Green smoothie: Blend 1-2 cups of almond milk, 1 scoop plant-based protein powder, 1 cup frozen spinach, 1 frozen banana, 1/4 avocado and 1-2 tablespoons of nut butter for the perfect on-the-go breakfast.

Avocado toast: Toast up some sprouted grain bread, top with mashed avocado on each
slice, fry up two eggs in some coconut oil and add slice tomato. Sprinkle on sea salt and
cracked pepper and enjoy!
