Diet breakdowns are all over the internet. I’m going to use this one that is in the cookbook and also has a bit more information on it. For those who need some inspiration, try this out. It’s called “Breakfast” which is basically when you eat breakfast for most of the day before you go to work or school or when you’re just done eating so that your mind can start working towards its goals.
Breakfast is usually the last thing you’re thinking about. You’re thinking about what you’re going to do next, then probably what’s on your lunch plate or what’s for dinner. Then maybe what’s for supper, now we’re looking at you at home, what have you eaten for dinner? So there’s no surprise to us that you want to eat healthy foods, but it is very hard to make sure that you’re giving yourself enough protein, good fats, vitamins and minerals, carbohydrates, fiber, and complex sugars.
I don’t think what we have on our plates is always healthy, and when we’re hungry our bodies will always crave something that is palatable. And for many people, especially women – even those of us who aren’t much like anorexics, and who usually feel better doing cardio-based workouts – food isn’t our biggest concern. That’s why I encourage people to choose their meals carefully.
If you’re someone who works out, chances are, you have found yourself asking why they make these types of choices. We should not be making these choices ourselves. The best thing you can do is ask the people around you if they know any good recipes to help you.
There are plenty that you can use! What you find might be easier to prepare than some of these dishes. This may be something I used to do in my life when I was younger – try this recipe! This is a quick and easy way to get some of your protein and fat needs in.
I found a lot of great breakfast ideas in the Cookbook for Beginners. It has a lot of options and makes it nice and simple to be able to mix and match different items. One of my favorites is the carrot pancake. Here’s how to put together a delicious carrot pancake.
Some of the things to keep in mind when trying to include some vegetables, such as carrots and spinach, in your diet are – be conscious of those nutrients you may want to leave out, and see where you can add them. Other fruits and vegetables may look okay with your meal, but check to see whether there is enough of each of them.
In general, most healthy people will consume 2 cups of fruit and 1 cup of vegetables,s and a small amount of meat per day. People with kidney disease should consume less than 3 cups of whole grains and 4 cups of fruits and vegetables every day. When you have extra fruits and veggie options, be sure not to overeat on them because your body needs them.
They don’t grow too quickly, and you’ll need to take time to eat them (in moderation). Once you’ve gotten your food into your system, add variety and variety by adding in more of your favorite recipes. Try some combination of eggs, bacon, sausage, hot sauce, cheddar cheese, peanut butter, and fruit or veggies.
My favorite combinations are fruit salad, banana pancakes, apple cinnamon rolls, blueberry muffins, avocado on toast, chicken, rice cakes, and salmon with tomato soup. These are only a few examples.
When you’re reading the book you’ll notice that once you finish preparing certain ingredients, and when you read about substituting certain parts of recipes, it doesn’t really matter if you didn’t exactly follow the instructions on the label.
Just cut the recipe up into portions, and be willing to adjust to add in things that you think would work, based on what went right as well as things that you thought were unnecessary. As long as you know a little bit of what’s inside the ingredients, and you understand that those are helpful, you’re in the right place!
Once you’re finished, enjoy! You’ll be glad that you tried it, and that you made it work for you. Enjoy those eggs, bacon, ham, turkey sausage, cranberry sauce, pineapple juice, cream cheese, honey mustard, fresh berries, and peaches and pears.
Now, if I asked you how many calories are in a large piece of raw beef jerky, I’d say, between 50-60. A small portion of beef jerky has about 80 calories, while an entire serving of shredded cooked beef contains 150 calories or about 5 oz of meat.
So where can you use this stuff? Use it in a sandwich, make a burger patty, spread it on bread or crackers, make tacos, stir fry, boil and sauté, marinate fish sticks and use the juice to make a marinade for grilled salmon. Add it to sandwiches, poach eggs, shred your own french fries or potatoes, toss in some ranch or yogurt mixture to flavor them, serve on pizza, dip celery slices in barbecue sauce, use as a topping on baked goods, top loaves of bread with slices of ham, sprinkle on crackers, etc.
The possibilities are endless! Enjoy it! Take full advantage of whatever food has your name on it! After you eat, sit on the couch, drink some coffee and watch television. Do some crossword puzzles, play a game…I can even throw in a few minutes at the end of your busy day when you have nothing else on your hands. Trust me, it gets really bad…
