Breakfast Of Champions: 4 Energizing Meals
Lemon Ginger Tea
To start off the day, ditch the coffee and grab a tea infused with ginger. Ginger is filled with antioxidants that can give a great energy boost. If you would like to create a ginger tea from scratch, slice 15 thin slices of fresh ginger, place them into a pot and boil for 20-30 minutes. Let the mixture cool before adding it into a mug and squeeze in some fresh lemon juice for extra detoxing qualities. Drink down for a full body energizing morning beverage that won’t leave you crashing and burning in the afternoon.
Eggs contain iron and protein that provide the body with sustainable energy throughout the day. What’s even greater is the fact that eggs also contain choline, a B vitamin needed for brain function and the production of energy. To get that energy boost that you need and a serving of veggies, make an omelet using 4 eggs, chopped spinach, 1/4 cup tomatoes, chopped red onion or a veggie combination of your choice. Cheese can be added depending on your dietary restrictions. After beating the eggs together with your desired spices, place them in a well-oiled skillet and let them cook until the bottom layer is solid. Place your veggie mixture on one side of the omelet and flip the opposite side over the mixture to cover. Continue to cook until the inside egg is solid. Serve and enjoy.
Dark Chocolate-Banana Protein Shake
Bananas are rich in potassium and vitamin B, help to slow down digestion and stabilize blood sugar levels, and with the added magnesium and iron from dark chocolate, eating these two foods in combination with protein makes a morning shake that is tasty and energizing. Combine 1 banana with 1 ½ cup of almond milk, 2 scoops protein powder and 1 ½ scoops 70% dark cocoa powder. Blend together in a blender, serve and enjoy! If you want to add a chill to the shake, throw in two ice cubes.
