The One Breakfast Hack That Can Transform Your Morning

You’ve always heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day… and it really can set the tone for not only how much you get done that day… but also your mood, your energy, and your metabolism.

One of the biggest problems I see is that people are so busy, they don’t have time to start their day the right way… they grab a quick breakfast that is loaded with carbs.

Maybe it’s because of our busy lifestyles but breakfast tends to become “morning dessert”. Think about the typical hotel “continental” breakfast, or what many of us tend to grab in the morning from Starbucks on the way to work:

  • muffins
  • biscuits
  • danishes
  • donuts
  • sugary cereal

 

The problem is that this type of breakfast burns up quickly leaving you starving just hours later…. and low on energy too.

 

I don’t know if you have ever been able to travel to some other countries and experience their typical “breakfasts”, but I’ll never forget on my first trip to Italy having breakfast at our hotel and being surprised by what was being served.

  • Frittata
  • Cheese (several types)
  • Fresh Fruit
  • Cold Cut Meat
  • Hard Boiled Eggs
  • Pickled Vegetables (olives primarily)

 

Notice any differences?

 

The typical American “Quick” breakfast consists of quick carbs and if someone is trying to make a “healthy” choice it tends to be a lower fat option.

 

But what I saw in Italy consisted primarily of healthy fats, low carbohydrates, and some protein.

 

“Ok that’s great…” but let’s talk about reality!

 

I’m busy, I’m in a hurry, and I need something fast that isn’t full of empty carbs.

 

Did you know your morning coffee could be the secret to having more energy, staying full longer, and increasing your mental focus? 

 

The secret is in the ingredients that you can ADD to your coffee. You can turn your cup of coffee into a breakfast that helps you burn fat, fire your metabolism, and give your body what it needs to fuel your brain too.

    Why is Grassfed Butter Good for You?

    As you may can imagine… given the title of this blog… We like grassfed butter and we cannot lie, haha.

     

    But what the heck is it and WHY is it good for you???

     

    What is Grassfed Butter?

    Grassfed Butter is just butter made from cows who eat grass…

    Cow are supposed to be eating grass, Right? Sadly this shouldn’t be so usual… but we see that many conventional dairy products come from cows who are given feed other than their preferred diet of grass. You can read more about that in the Omnivore’s Dilemma 

    Because these cows are fed grass, the butter that is made from the cream of cows getting a diet rich in beta-carotene – resulting in higher nutrition for you! 

     

    Although you may have been told that butter is bad for your health… That couldn’t be further from the truth.

     

    Let’s look at Grassfed Butter’s nutrition facts: 

    Grass-fed butter nutrition is even more impressive than regular butter nutrition.

    For example, 14 grams of butter, which is just under a tablespoon at 0.93 tablespoon, contains about the following nutrients:

  • 100 calories
  • 11 grams fat (with 7 grams saturated fat and 0 grams trans fat)
  • 30 milligrams cholesterol
  • 500 international units vitamin A (1o percent DV)
  • 0.4 milligram vitamin E (2 percent DV)
  • 0.8 microgram vitamin K (1 percent DV)

    I love the finished product and the feeling that comes from preparing healthy dishes for my family (and knowing what they are putting in their bodies!)

    But there are times that I’m just not excited to hit the kitchen and do the meal prep and the cooking.

     

    Ever been there?

     

    Enter the “Instant Pot”

     

    You might be wondering “Instant what?”…

     

    Basically, an Instant Pot is a multi-use and programmable electric pressure cooker. When I first heard about this I was like “So what?”, but consider what this bad boy can do!

    My Instant Pot has so far replaced my:

    • Rice Cooker
    • Slow Cooker/Crock Pot
    • Saute’ Pan
    • Steamer
    • Warmer

    and probably some other stuff I’m forgetting!

    That sounds a bit more impressive to me, haha!

     

    Brown Rice in 20 minutes?? Yes, Please!

    Ingredients

    2 cups of Brown Rice

    2.5 Cups of Water

    Directions

    Add to the Instant Pot and Cook on manual high for 20 minutes! Perfection!

    Most busy moms know the benefits of having a slow cooker… you throw a bunch of ingredients in, set it to low, dinner is ready by the end of the day… wouldn’t it be nice if you could speed up the process a bit?? Especially if you aren’t that organized lol.

     

    This is where Instant Pot comes in! It has the same benefits of a slow cooker, but FAST (a pressure cooker speeds up the cooking time by up to 70 percent.)

     

    Pressure cookers were a little scary to use back in the day, but now with newer models – they are so easy to use!
