I’ve talked about habits in the past. Like how to incorporate new behaviour into your everyday life and make it stick. Great morning routines, such as meditating or eating well, can really change how you carry on your daily business. Meditation calms the inner chatter and enables you to focus on tasks at hand or for new ideas to hatch. Changing your diet for the better is another surefire route to a better quality of life as it fuels your energy, nourishes your cells, fills you up (but not uncomfortably so) and help you stay satiated for longer. Changing daily habits therefore has the potential to rock your universe in more ways than one which is welcome news.
It helps of course to have the right things in your cupboard to begin with as we are inherently weak willed and resisting temptation first thing in the morning is almost impossible, especially on an empty stomach. Removing unhelpful products which otherwise would be a go to item is therefore a useful trick which I highly recommend. Your conviction has got to be the main driver in the cupboard cleaning exercise. Do it hungry and you are bound to fail. Things to avoid? Sugary cereal, wheat toast, bagels, croissants, pop tarts (yes they are still being consumed) and any kind of shop juice which has been pasteurised beyond repair.
Once your kitchen is filled with good stuff you can safely rotate menus on an ongoing basis. Here are some top breakfasts ideas which feature heavily in our household. All of it taste good and does you better with plenty of scope for variety. Voila!
