Your alarm clock went off 30 minutes ago. You’re showered, dressed and now ready for some breakfast to fill your empty tummy.

But wait!

 

Don’t just grab whatever sounds good or whatever you can scarf down the fastest to get out the door. It’s important to choose your morning foods wisely, as what you eat now can very much impact your energy levels, focus, and even your mood in the mid-morning hours to come.

 

So before you raid the fridge, browse through the cheat sheet below. It’s filled with foods you should most definitely steer clear of, as well as three in which to indulge.

 

The 5 Worst Foods for Breakfast

 

  1. Muffins

 

A muffin seems like a sensible choice, especially compared to a doughnut or Danish. But a muffin is really a breakfast “wolf” hiding in sheep’s clothing — especially if it’s store-bought.

 

Most store-bought muffins are giant, which means they can sometimes contain over 600 calories. And for those calories, you’re not getting any protein or healthy fat to keep you satiated. No.

 

Instead you’re getting refined carbs like white or wheat flour and sugar — the very recipe for a growling stomach in about an hour … plus weight gain in the long term.

 

By the way, don’t fall for the “bran” muffin trap either. Even these seemingly healthy muffins are typically far too high in sugar and calories to be any benefit to your health. If you want fiber, eat some fresh veggies instead.

 

  1. Cereal

 

We know it’s a beloved favorite, but that bowl of honey-nut o’s, sweetened flakes or crispy rice is not going to keep you full, and worse, it will send your blood sugar on a rollercoaster ride that ends with you yawning at your desk, barely able to keep your eyes open.

 

Most cereals are empty calories, simple carbs and sugar, disguised as a “healthy” breakfast choice. Don’t be fooled. Some of the most popular cereals are more than 50 percent sugar, by weight, and easily contain more sugar than a Twinkie or three chocolate chip cookies!

 

  1. Bagels

 

Would you sit down and eat four slices of bread? Probably not! Well a bagel from a bagel chain is often the equivalent of four servings of bread … as in, a truckload of simple carbs that your body will quickly convert into sugar (i.e. your mid-morning energy crash is guaranteed).

 

Many also contain added sugar — and even those that claim to be made from “whole grains” are usually mostly white flour with a bit of whole grain added in for good measure.

 

  1. Pancakes

 

Pancakes are mostly refined flour, with some milk, eggs and butter mixed in. Even under the best circumstances (i.e., they’re homemade), they’re a source of simple carbs that will cause your blood sugar and insulin levels to spike and crash.

 

If you make them from a boxed mix or get them at a fast-food restaurant, you can expect them to contain more sugar and some even contain disease-causing trans fats.

 

Of course, virtually nobody eats pancakes without syrup, which is a synonym for “corn syrup and sugar.” Even the 100% maple varieties are really just another form of sugar.

 

  1. Doughnuts

 

There is really nothing redeeming about a doughnut, other than, perhaps, it’s taste. But when you get down to the nitty-gritty, a doughnut is a mix of refined flour, sugar, and oils (probably partially hydrogenated oils, i.e. trans fats).

 

That sugary concoction is then fried and topped with more sugar in the form of frosting or glaze. If your only option to eat in the morning is doughnuts, you’re better off eating nothing at all.

The 3 Best Foods for Breakfast

 

We’ve covered what you shouldn’t eat, and now for the fun part: what you should …

 

  1. Organic Peanut Butter

 

Peanut butter can give you a quick protein boost to give you energy and keep you satisfied all morning long. A couple of tips: try spreading your peanut butter on apple or banana slices instead of bread, or add a tablespoon to a kefir smoothie.

 

Be sure to choose a natural brand with just peanuts (not added vegetable oils or sugar), and go organic, as peanuts tend to be a heavily pesticide-sprayed crop.

 

  1. Kefir

 

Kefir, a yogurt-like beverage made from fermented milk, is loaded with beneficial enzymes and bacteria that aid digestion and boost your immune system.

 

A natural energy booster, kefir can easily replace coffee or tea in the morning, and will provide your body with vitamins and minerals instead of simply caffeine. Kefir has a pleasant tart flavor, but you can sweeten it up naturally by adding in a handful of fresh berries or banana slices.

 

  1. Eggs

 

As an excellent source of both protein and fat, eggs will leave you feeling satisfied longer than a bagel or bowl of cereal ever could. Plus, they contain B vitamins like choline for your heart and brain (and reduced levels of inflammation) and naturally occurring antioxidants that benefit your eyes.

 

If you’re worried about your cholesterol, don’t be. The latest research has shown that eggs no not significantly impact cholesterol levels, and may, in fact, improve your cholesterol profile.

 

Plus, one study found that, compared to those who eat bagels, people who eat two eggs for breakfast lose 65 percent more weight and have higher energy levels!

9 Smartest Ways to Eat More Vegetables for Breakfast

 

9 Smartest Ways to Eat More Vegetables for Breakfast - Vegetables also have anti-aging properties, and eating veggies and fruits (seven or more servings daily) has been shown to lower your risk of dying prematurely by 42 percent. Here are 9 smartest ways to eat more vegetables for breakfast.
How to Make Healthy Food Taste Great WITHOUT Damaging Additives

 

Vegetables are full of vitamins, minerals, fiber and antioxidants, which work synergistically to lower your risk of heart disease, cancer, dementia, arthritis, stroke and more.

 

Vegetables also have anti-aging properties, and eating veggies and fruits (seven or more servings daily) has been shown to lower your risk of dying prematurely by 42 percent.

 

That’s not too shabby for a versatile food group that’s quick to cook, relatively inexpensive to buy, and, when prepared just the right way, can be quite delicious. So why are so many people not eating them?

 

The latest government data, released July 2015, showed that just one in 10 Americans is eating enough vegetables and fruits. Only 9 percent of Americans are eating the recommended two to three cups of vegetables daily. The researchers concluded:

 

“Substantial new efforts are needed to build consumer demand for fruits and vegetables through competitive pricing, placement, and promotion in child care, schools, grocery stores, communities and worksites.”

 

This sounds good on a national level, but what about in your home? You’re probably well aware that you can snack on cut-up carrots and celery as a snack, or get in the habit of eating a side salad with your dinner … but there’s another opportunity to fit in more veggies that many people overlook. It is called breakfast!

 

Only 1 percent of Americans currently eat vegetables at breakfast, so it’s a missed opportunity for almost everyone.

 

When you start your day out with a serving (or two) of veggies, you’re setting a healthy tone for the entire day. It’s not as strange as you might think, either. There are actually many ways to add vegetables for breakfast

 

9 Ways to Eat Vegetables for Breakfast

 

  1. Veggies With Eggs

 

Vegetables pair very well with eggs of all varieties. Sautee up some mushrooms, onions, green or red pepper, tomatoes, spinach and any others you enjoy and toss them with your scrambled eggs. You’ll only dirty one pan and have a breakfast fit for a king. And you can try this with any type of eggs you enjoy – add veggies to omelets, poached eggs, sunny-side up, over easy, you name it.

 

  1. Breakfast Smoothie

 

Grab your blender and add in your choice of plain yogurt or kefir, whey protein powder and/or milk. Blend in a banana and some frozen berries, then top it off with whatever leafy greens you have on hand (spinach, romaine, etc.).

 

You can also blend in one-half to one whole avocado (and sprinkle in a serving of chia or flaxseeds, too). Even steamed beets, broccoli or red cabbage can be added to breakfast smoothies.

 

For inspiration, try this Anti-Cancer Breakfast Smoothie recipe from blogger Carrie Forrest:

 

Anti-Cancer Breakfast Smoothie

 

Author: Carrie Forrest, MBA/MPH

Serves: 2-4

 

Ingredients

 

  • ¼ cup hemp seeds
  • 3 cups filtered water
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1 cup frozen strawberries
  • ½ cup frozen or fresh pomegranate arils
  • 1 1-inch knob fresh ginger
  • 4 cups fresh salad greens or lightly steamed kale, spinach, or collard greens
  • 10 fresh mint leaves
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons flax meal
  • 1 tablespoon ground chia seeds
  • ½ cup frozen raw broccoli florets
  • juice of one lime

 

Instructions

 

Combine hemp seeds and water in a high-speed blender and process on high for 15 seconds

 

Next, add the banana, frozen strawberries, and pomegranate arils and blend on high again.

 

Lastly, add the ginger, greens, mint, cocoa powder, flax meal, ground chia seeds, broccoli, and lime juice and blend one last time until smooth. Serve immediately.

 

  1. Breakfast Burrito

 

Scrambled eggs, cheese and salsa in a tortilla is a decent start, but you can add in more veggies than that … think green pepper strips, sautéed onions, spinach, roasted asparagus, mushrooms and more.

 

  1. Breakfast Salad

 

Fill a bowl with tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers and greens, then top it with avocado, a bit of crumbled bacon and two soft-boiled eggs. The bacon and eggs say “breakfast,” and the runny yolk from the eggs makes a tasty warm salad dressing.

 

  1. Quiche or Frittata

 

These baked egg dishes are thought of more for weekend brunches than weekday breakfasts, but they’re easy to make ahead and heat up quickly even when you’re in a hurry. Plus, you can pack in as many veggies as you want. Try this vegetable quiche recipe from Kath Eats Real Food for starters:

 

Vegetable Quiche With Homemade Crust

 

Ingredients (8 slices)

 

For The Crust

 

  • .25 lb whole wheat pastry flour (about 1 cup)
  • .25 lb pastry flour or all-purpose flour (about 1 cup)
  • 1 tsp granulated sugar
  • .25 lb salted butter (if using unsalted, also add .75 tsp granulated salt)
  • 2-4 tablespoon ice water

 

For The Filling

 

  • 3 cups assorted veggies (try kale, fennel and mushrooms) or meat, cooked (use approximately .5 tsp kosher salt to season while cooking)
  • 6 eggs
  • 25 cups 2% milk
  • .25 tsp kosher salt

 

Instructions

 

For The Crust

 

  1. Mix flour and sugar together (and salt if needed) until fully incorporated.

 

  1. Add butter and squeeze together until butter bullets are formed.

 

  1. Begin by adding 2 tablespoon ice water and mixing, adding more if necessary. Mix until a shaggy mass is formed.

 

  1. Turn dough out onto a floured surface and roll out until slightly larger than the diameter of the pie pan.

 

  1. Spray pie pan and place crust inside.

 

  1. Even crust out, and then shape and flute.

 

For The Filling

 

  1. Preheat oven to 375*

 

  1. Cook fillings, using salt as needed. Set aside.

 

  1. Whisk together eggs, milk, and salt.

 

  1. Place fillings into finished crust, and then pour egg mixture on top.

 

  1. Lightly stir to ensure incorporation.

 

  1. Add cheese to top, if using.

 

  1. Bake for 40-60 minutes, until liquid is springy and no longer jiggles when nudged, and crust and surface are nicely browned.

 

  1. Veggie-Filled Leftovers

 

If you had a veggie stir-fry or broccoli soup for dinner last night, there’s no rule that says you can’t heat up a bowl the next morning. In fact, healthy, veggie-filled leftovers make some of the most satisfying and quick breakfast options of all.

 

  1. Loaded Baked Sweet Potato

 

Pop a large sweet potato in the oven while you’re getting ready. By the time you come downstairs, it will be baked and warm from the oven. Top it with yogurt or sour cream, chopped nuts or seeds, raisins and cinnamon for a sweet yet healthy treat.

 

  1. Veggie Skillet Breakfast Hash

 

It’s easy to add sweet potatoes and veggies to a skillet, cook them up and then add an egg or two to the top … and this is a phenomenal way to load up on vegetables first thing in the morning, too. A recipe isn’t necessary, but you can try the one that follows, from How Sweet It Is, for inspiration:

 

Brussels Sprouts Breakfast Hash

 

Yield: serves 3-4

 

Ingredients:

 

  • 4 slices thick-cut bacon, chopped
  • 1/2 red onion, diced
  • 1 sweet potato, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 10-12 brussels sprouts, stems removed and sliced
  • 3-4 large eggs
  • salt + pepper to taste

 

Directions:

 

Heat a large skillet over medium heat and add bacon. Cook until crispy and fat is rendered, and then remove with a slotted spoon and let drain on a paper towel. Slightly reduce the heat under the skillet and add onion and sweet potato, tossing to coat. Cook until sweet potato has softened, about 6-8 minutes, then stir in garlic and cook for 30 seconds.

 

Add sliced brussels sprouts and stir to combine, cooking them until soft and caramely, another 5 minutes or so. In the meantime, poach or fry eggs, cooking until desired doneness.

 

  1. Savory Pancakes

 

Pancakes aren’t the healthiest breakfast choice no matter how you cook them, but if you’re going to eat them here’s a twist to try: instead of adding in fruit like blueberries to your batter, stir in shredded vegetables like carrots or zucchini.

 

Then, instead of the syrup top the savory pancakes with yogurt. You’ll get more veggies in to your day and you won’t even miss the sugary syrup.

 

One of the benefits to eating more veggies is that it will kick start your body’s natural detoxification mechanisms.

Can This Natural Secret Really Fight Cancer Absolutely?

 

Can This Natural Secret Really Fight Cancer Absolutely? Pancreatic enzymes, which are a type of proteolytic enzyme, were first used to treat and fight cancer in 1902 by a Scottish scientist, John Beard. Read on to find out more.
The Secret Weapon to Strengthen Your Body Defence Against Cancer! Click HERE!

 

There are actually more than 3,000 enzymes in your body, each with a specific function. You cannot survive without them, as enzymes act as catalysts for countless biological changes that take place in living organisms.

 

Some experts, such as Dr. Edward Howell, believe that you are born with a limited supply of enzyme energy, and if you don’t consume enough enzymes via your diet (in raw foods, for instance), your digestive system will become stressed and unable to properly break down your food. This could lead to a reduced availability of metabolic, i.e. proteolytic, enzymes, which he believed was at the root of most chronic health problems.

 

While it used to be thought (for more than 100 years) that enzymes consumed orally were not absorbed by your digestive tract or bloodstream, research has proven this to be wrong.

 

Orally consumed proteolytic enzymes can, and do, pass through your digestive tract and into your bloodstream for systemic effects, according to researchers, and this includes a potential role in fighting cancer.

 

Pancreatic enzymes, which are a type of proteolytic enzyme, were first used to treat and fight cancer in 1902 by a Scottish scientist, John Beard. German researchers later used them to treat and fight cancer, multiple sclerosis and viral infections, and some enzyme mixtures are still commonly used to treat cancer in several European countries, according to the American Cancer Society (ACS).

 

Although ACS states that “available scientific evidence does not support claims that enzyme supplements are effective in treating cancer,” there is good reason for further study.

 

Have You Heard of Dr. Gonzalez or the Gerson Therapy?

 

Dr. Max Gerson developed the Gerson Therapy in the 1930s, and today it is most well-known for its role in cancer. The Gerson Therapy is a multi-faceted approach involving dietary changes (organic and plant-based) and detoxification, but enzymes are at its foundation. In addition to “copious amounts of fresh, organic juices” that are consumed every day “providing your body with a super-dose of enzymes,” patients also receive a pancreatic enzyme supplement.

 

According to one study conducted by the Gerson Research Institute, when patients with melanoma, colorectal cancer, and ovarian cancer were treated with surgery and Gerson therapy [including systemic enzymes], survival rates were higher than would normally be expected …”

 

The Gerson Therapy is not the only ‘alternative’ cancer treatment that involves proteolytic enzymes. Dr. Nicholas Gonzalez also uses pancreatic enzymes to treat cancer patients, with research showing “an aggressive nutritional therapy with large doses of pancreatic enzymes led to significantly increased survival over what would normally be expected for patients with inoperable pancreatic adenocarcinoma [cancer].”

 

Separate research also suggests that people taking pancreatic enzyme supplements may have less severe side effects while undergoing radiation therapy compared to those taking a placebo. In the US, at least one enzyme preparation is currently being studied for use along with chemotherapy in cancer patients, according to ACS.

 

You can also watch this Video HERE about the use of proteolytic enzymes to fight cancer.

 

Proteolytic Enzymes Eat Up Scar Tissue for Lunch

 

Part of what makes proteolytic enzymes so beneficial is their ability to breakdown scar tissue in your body. What does this have to do with cancer?

 

Dr. William Wong, ND, PhD, explained:

 

“CA (cancer) cells are covered with fibrin (the same stuff scar tissue is made of). Then as the cells glom together to form tumors these growths themselves are armored with fibrin. This thick protective coating is designed to prevent the body’s own defenses (i.e. Natural Killer cells, White blood cells or Oxygen) from getting inside the cell or tumor to destroy it.

 

Would it not make sense to have something strip away the outer fibrous wall of CA so that whatever agents we are using as medicine, whether natural or otherwise, can actually get into the cell and do their job?”

Systemic enzymes eat away at scar tissue; it’s their ‘claim to fame,’ and perhaps the reason why many doctors in Europe use enzymes as part of their cancer treatment plans as a matter of course.

 

Proteolytic Enzymes Are One of Nature’s Most Powerful Inflammation Fighters

 

This is important, because chronic inflammation plays a well-established role in the growth and spread of cancer. It’s no coincidence that many chronic inflammatory diseases, including pancreatitis and Crohn’s disease, increase your cancer risk, too, as do inflammatory conditions like hepatitis B or C infection, which can cause liver cancer.

 

According to Cancer Research UK:

 

“… It’s clear that fledgling tumors hijack inflammation and use it to accelerate the progression towards full-blown cancer. As one of our own experts once commented, “If genetic damage is the match that lights the fire, inflammation may provide the fuel that feeds the flames.”

 

Here, too, systemic enzymes help, as they are powerful anti-inflammatories. And, systemic enzymes appear to stimulate your immune system, making them useful for both infectious and chronic diseases alike.

 

Researchers noted in Medical Hypotheses:

 

“Numerous publications reveal that oral proteolytic enzymes are able to stimulate directly the activity of immune competent cells as well as to increase efficiency of some of their products.”

 

Systemic enzymes are very safe with few, if any, side effects, which is why so many people use them for everything from general well-being to more serious issues like cancer.

 

Why It’s Important to Replenish Your Enzyme Supplies

 

Proteolytic enzymes are naturally produced in your pancreas, but your natural production declines with age; these inflammation-busters become largely depleted as you hit 40 and over.

 

In fact, a new-born baby has 100 times more enzymes than an elderly person, and even a 20-year-old has double the enzyme levels of a 70-year-old. If you have blood-clotting disorders, chronic fatigue, high cholesterol, obesity or other chronic health ailments, these could be signs that you’re already enzyme deficient.

 

If you don’t eat perfectly (including raw foods on a daily basis), the chances that your body is lacking in these crucial catalysts is even higher.

Fortunately, there is Heal-n-Soothe, the best systemic enzyme formula to replenish your body’s supply of vital enzymes.

 

Heal-n-Soothe®” not only gives you the healing power of systemic proteolytic enzymes but also other natural anti-inflammatories (some of which have their own anti-cancer effects). This includes:

 

  • Turmeric, which protects against multiple types of cancer and organ damage from conventional treatments.

 

  • Ginger, which has shown some ability to slow or prevent tumor growth in animal studies.

 

  • Boswellia, which has been shown to induce apoptosis (programmed cell death) in cancer cells.

 

Heal-n-Soothe now has 2X MORE proteolytic enzymes than before … it’s new and improved, for maximum pain- and inflammation-fighting power! Find out more now.

5 Really Greatest Breakfasts for a Slimmer Attractive Waist

 

5 Really Greatest Breakfasts for a Slimmer Attractive Waist - Many of the most popular breakfast foods are also among the worst choices if you want a slimmer attractive waist. Here are a list of foods to eat and to avoid if you want to have an hourglass shape.
Click HERE To Discover the Fastest & Most Effective Way to Curb Your Cravings and Burn Unwanted Fat

 

Breakfast is said to be the most important meal of the day, but one survey found only 34 percent of U.S. adults take the time to eat a morning meal.

 

Whether or not eating breakfast is truly beneficial, as opposed to skipping it, is up for debate. But there is a tendency that you will overeat in the next meal if you skip your breakfast which is not advisable if you want a slim waist

 

But assuming you choose to eat breakfast, there’s no doubt that what you choose to eat for said meal will make or break its value. In the US, many of the most popular breakfast foods are also among the worst choices if you want a slim waist.

 

If you’re eating any of the unhealthy breakfasts that follow, you might be better off eating no breakfast at all (or choosing from the healthy breakfast options at the end of this post).

 

Avoid these Foods for Breakfast If You Want a Slimmer Attractive Waist

 

  1. Fast-Food Breakfast Sandwiches

 

Most people will quickly call out these sandwiches for their high levels of calories, fat and sodium. But to me, the most compelling reason to avoid them of all is their very artificial and synthetic ingredients.

 

Like most fast food, these represent the epitome of industrial food – meat and eggs from concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs), genetically modified ingredients, artificial flavors, synthetic flavor enhancers, partially hydrogenated oils, and cheap fillers.

 

The Sausage, Egg & Cheese Mcgriddle at McDonald’s, for example, might not sound too bad on the surface, but look at the ingredients and you’ll find (this is just a brief sampling of the lengthy list):

 

  • Flavor enhancer, modified food starch and soybean oil in the egg

 

  • Artificial flavors, soybean oil and potentially toxic caramel color in the griddle cakes

 

  • The toxic preservative BHA in the sausage patty (along with corn syrup solids)

 

 

  1. Cereal

 

Cold cereal is the most common breakfast food in the US, but most cereal is very high in sugar. Some of the most popular cereals are more than 50 percent sugar, by weight, and easily contain more sugar than a Twinkie or three chocolate chip cookies.

 

Even ‘healthy’ cereals, like Kashi GOLEAN, contain about 26 grams of sugar when combined with one cup of milk. That’s equal to six teaspoons of sugar — which is the upper amount of sugar the World Health Organization recommends eating in an entire day.

 

One study even found that eating a high-protein breakfast (i.e. eggs) lead to “beneficial alterations in the appetitive, hormonal, and neural signals that control food intake regulation” more so than eating a cereal-based breakfast.

 

  1. Bagels

 

By now you’re probably all-too-familiar with the risks of eating refined carbohydrates – all of which apply, in spades, to bagels. With virtually no fiber or protein to speak of, a bagel is almost all carbs … a lot of them.

 

Eating one six-inch bagel is like eating more than four slices of bread in terms of carbs, which are then broken down into sugar in your body. As SF Gate reported:

 

“A typical bagel therefore becomes the equivalent of over 16 teaspoons of sugar in your blood, which is approximately the same as a can and a half of regular soda.”

 

Note that virtually every other flour-based breakfast item also falls into this refined carb “don’t eat” category, including pancakes, waffles, muffins and pastries.

 

  1. “Smoothie-Place” Smoothies

 

Smoothies can be healthy, but if you get one from a “smoothie place” it’s probably not. At Jamba Juice, for instance, a seemingly healthy Kale-ribbean Breeze (I mean, it has kale in the name) contains 85 grams of sugar in the 28-ounce size (that’s 21 teaspoons – about 15 more than you should be eating all day).

 

  1. Yogurt

 

Think yogurt is healthy? If you’re eating popular brands like Yoplait, Dannon or even Chobani Greek yogurt – drop your spoon. A recent report by the Cornucopia called most yogurt on store shelves out for what it really is: junk food:

 

“Conventional yogurt of today is produced with milk from cows that are nearly always confined and unable to graze on pasture, and fed genetically engineered grains. Chemical defoamers, banned in organics, are commonly added to milk during the processing of lowfat yogurt.

 

Add in artificial sweeteners or high doses of sugar and high fructose corn syrup, artificial colors, synthetic preservatives, and the gut-wrenching thickener carrageenan, and it’s plain to see that many yogurt products are essentially junk food masquerading as health food.”

 

So What’s Safe to Eat If You Want a Slimmer Attractive Waist?

 

Plenty! If you’re looking for a healthy breakfast that will fill you up (not out) and keep you going strong all morning, choose from the options below. In a nutshell, you want foods that are low in sugar and refined carbohydrates, high in protein and rich in fiber, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. And you want whole foods, not processed simulations.

 

The Following 5 Breakfast Choices Are Great If You Want a Slimmer Attractive Waist

 

Homemade Breakfast Sandwiches (or Just the Eggs)

 

Cook two organic free-range eggs in your favorite style. Put them on one slice of whole-grain bread. Add organic cheese if you like and then boost the nutrition even more by adding sliced avocado, tomato, sautéed onion or green pepper and a small handful of steamed spinach.

 

Part of what makes this such a great choice is the eggs (so feel free to feast on just the eggs, if you prefer). As an excellent source of both protein and fat, eggs will leave you feeling satisfied longer than a bagel or bowl of cereal ever could.

 

Plus, eggs contain B vitamins like choline for your heart and brain (and reduced levels of inflammation) and naturally occurring antioxidants that benefit your eyes.

 

If you’re worried about your cholesterol, don’t be. The latest research has shown that eggs do not significantly impact cholesterol levels, and may, in fact, improve your cholesterol profile. Plus, one study found that, compared to those who eat bagels, people who eat two eggs for breakfast lose 65 percent more weight and have higher energy levels.

 

Organic Nut Butter

 

Peanut butter or almond butter can give you a quick protein boost to give you energy and keep you satisfied. A couple of tips: try spreading your nut butter on apple or banana slices or a stalk of celery instead of bread, or add a tablespoon to a homemade smoothie (see below).

 

Be sure to choose a natural brand with just nuts (not added vegetable oils or sugar), and go organic, as peanuts tend to be a heavily pesticide-sprayed crop.

 

Homemade Smoothies

 

Grab some organic milk, organic plain yogurt, berries (frozen work well) and a banana and you’ve got the makings of a healthy smoothie. Add in some chia seeds for fiber and omega-3 fats, a large handful of raw spinach and half an avocado (you won’t even notice it) to kick up the nutrition level even more.

 

For something different, make your smoothie out of kefir, a yogurt-like beverage made from fermented milk, Kefir is loaded with beneficial enzymes and bacteria that aid digestion and boost your immune system.

 

A natural energy booster, kefir can easily replace coffee or tea in the morning, and will provide your body with vitamins and minerals instead of simply caffeine. Just be sure to make your own kefir (most sweetened varieties at the store have the same issues as conventional yogurt).

 

Oatmeal

 

If you’re a cereal fan, try swapping it out for oatmeal. Oats contain anti-inflammatory substances, antioxidants and nutrients, including zinc, biotin, magnesium, chromium, phosphorus and manganese.

 

Oatmeal is also a phenomenal source of fiber, and research shows eating oatmeal improves appetite control and increases satiety compared to breakfast cereal.

 

Be sure to opt for the plain oats (not the instant sweetened varieties) and add your own ‘toppings’ at home. Cinnamon, raisins and bananas work well, but you can even opt for a savory flavor instead by adding shredded cheese, hot sauce and veggies.

 

Healthy Leftovers

 

Leftovers make great breakfast. Cold pizza has even been described as an “all-time favorite” breakfast in America – but that’s not the kind of leftovers I’m referring to!

 

If you made a veggie stir fry or batch of chicken soup, why not enjoy it for breakfast too? This might take some getting used to … but just like you can eat ‘breakfast food’ for dinner, you can eat ‘dinner food’ for breakfast too.

Although Get rid of herpes has nothing to do with diet I thought I might write a little post for those who are considering diet as one of their ways to get rid of herpes.

 

I’m sure that if you have suffered with herpes for any length of time you will have looked around at possible ways to get rid of herpes and if you have then I’m also sure that you will have come across or heard of ‘Arginine’.

 

Arginine is a non-essential amino acid which the body produces naturally. Foods that are high in arginine tend to be bad for herpes sufferers as it provides an environment which allows the virus to flourish and replicate. This can make the chances of suffering with an outbreak far more of a worry & common occurrence.

 

Arginine Foods to Avoid include the following:

 

Red Meat

Seeds

Nuts (almonds, chestnuts, peanuts)

Orange Juice

Chocolate

Carob

Coconut

Oats

Whole Grains

Seafood

Eggs

Lentils

Protein Supplements

Wheat Products

White Bread

And a whole host of other foods

 

For a better idea of which foods contain or are high in arginine it would be wise to do a quick search online.

 

Another substance which I found to be partly responsible for regular herpes outbreaks was anything made with white flour. White flour is thought to be responsible for or contribute towards many conditions, and seems to have an effect on the body’s immune system.

 

I would strongly suggest that you try removing foods prepared with white flour when trying different ways to get rid of herpes. I found that it helped reduce outbreaks.

 

Besides flour, you should also avoid all junk food, caffeine, alcohol, tobacco, foods that contain artificial sweeteners and additives which tend to increase acidity in the body which can trigger herpes outbreaks.

 

To help control herpes outbreaks, you should have a lysine-rich diet and foods such as fish, vegetables, dairy products, brewer’s yeast, bean sprouts, beans and fruits (avocado, mango, apple, apricot) have high lysine content. This is because lysine helps to stop the virus which causes herpes.
