There’s still a surprising amount of confusion over what you do need to do with the first meal of the day – and some mainstream views are by no means ones we’d agree with here at Inspirit Retreat.
These days, the importance of breakfast has been pretty well established. It’s bad to skip it, it’s bad to fill yourself up with pastries, and it’s bad if all you manage is a grande latte with two extra shots…
But there’s still a surprising amount of confusion over what you do need to do with the first meal of the day – and some mainstream views are by no means ones we’d agree with here at Inspirit Retreat.
Low-protein, high-carb breakfasts have been in vogue for some time. Porridge, breakfast cereals, toast, fruit smoothies, fruit salads, yoghurts – they all sound quite healthy, and there’s certainly nothing wrong with consuming them now and then.
These combinations, though, will tend to make you prone to snacking during the day, reduce your energy levels, send your blood sugar levels swiftly up, and stress your liver, making it harder for you to drop fat.
The Inspirit Retreat approach pays a lot more attention to the importance of protein early in the day. You’re far more likely to find us eating lean bacon & eggs, omelettes, Greek yogurt and fruit, sausage, egg and mushrooms, or smoked salmon and cheese on hi-lo protein bread. It sets us up perfectly for a day focused on fitness and wellbeing.
Why not give it a go? Try spending a fortnight taking the Inspirit approach, and see how it changes the way you look and feel. You might well find the start of the day just got better.
