Welcome to part two of our quest to upgrade your habits in 2024: The Breakfast Edition.
Step 1: Get Your Foundation Right
First you need a solid base of carbs, a dash of fat, and a sprinkle of protein. Ideal fuel for your body, especially if you're hitting the gym or gearing up for a workout. Here are my top picks, ready to roll 60-90 minutes before you dive into action:
Vafels: Think nutrient-packed Belgian Liège wafels – small but mighty, packing a punch with 50g of carbs per Vafel!
Holos: An overnight Muesli that's the definition of convenience. Mix it up the night before or enjoy it cold with your fave milk. Bonus: 1 pouch = a full meal + 1 billion CFUs of probiotics!
Kyoku: 16 superfoods like Broccoli, Spinach, Ashwagandha and Tart Cherry, cold pressed to preserve the nutritional density of each superfood.
Special Offer: Get 6 Kyoku Shakes for just $36 + receive a free battery-operated portable blender (worth $30).
Step 2: Play with Toppings:
These aren't just flavor enhancers; they're the secret sauce to boosting your meal's nutritional prowess:
Chia Smash: A jam remix with no extras – just fruit, dates, and chia seeds. Dollop it on your Vafel or Holos for a carb boost before your training hustle.
Endurance Tap: Maple syrup isn't just for pancakes. It's a low glycemic index carb champ, ensuring a smooth and steady blood sugar rise. Drizzle it over your Vafels or Holos to for one of nature's best fuel sources.
Trail Butter: Elevate any of the above with a generous serving of Trail Butter. This portable, single serving packet of nut butter is key to upping the caloric ante for those marathon workdays or intense training sessions with 7g of carbs, 5g of protein, and 18g of fat per serving. Pro tip: My favorite flavor is the Salted Brownie Peanut because it's the favorite combo of sweet and salty.
