Power Breakfast

Eggs and bacon, chicken and waffles, donuts, sausage casserole. There are endless possibilities when it comes to things I'd rather eat than peanut butter, honey, and toast... but I try to keep my breakfasts under 3000 calories.

I'm not saying it's not delicious, but let's be honest...donuts are WAY better. What's especially good about a breakfast like this is that it keeps you full. The biggest no-no in dieting is skipping meals. Not only does it mess with your metabolism, but it makes you so hungry that you end up binge eating anyway. Not cute.

With a breakfast like this (paired with coffee and orange/grapefruit/papaya juice) will keep you full and content until lunch. There are a few key things, though.

1. Whole wheat toast. NO WHITE (make sure to check the sugar level, too. Shouldn't have more than 3 grams)
2. NATURAL peanut butter. If you can't pronounce an ingredient on the back label, you shouldn't be eating it.
3. Honey. Obviously, this is optional, but it's SO good! Try to find local honey from farmer's markets, produce stands, etc. It tastes so much better, you're supporting your local community, and you know it hasn't been sitting on a shelf for three years weeks at a big box store.
