We know that breakfast foods have been marketed for years of a glass of orange juice and a muffin, or croissant, or god forbid a donut. However, does that directly transfer into a positive performance? NO. NO. NO. Okay maybe.. But still no. what these high sugar breakfasts do is give you a ton of energy for an hour, and then force you to slump just a few hours into your workday, right around the time you go get your second cup of coffee.
When we’re trying to perform at our highest level in the workplace, we need to ensure we are physically satisfied. Meaning, we need to fuel our brains and energy levels to reflect the upcoming day.
The alternative, start your day off with a meal that is balanced in all three macronutrients. Protein, carbohydrates, and fats. A moderate amount of each. Protein will keep you satiated for longer. Carbs will fuel your brain. Fats will help regulate your body’s hormone production.
So what is the ideal breakfast?
One that you will make consistently and enjoy.
Yeah, I hate that answer too, but its the truth.
I’ve been having roughly the same breakfast for years now and its working well for me.
Protein:2 eggs + ½ cup egg whites
Carbohydrates: ½ cup oats + 1 banana + maple syrup ;)
Fats: ⅓ Avocado
There are many options, plug and play one that you will do.
If you don’t have time to make breakfast, try preparing things the night before, it’s not that you don’t have time, you just haven’t come up with a system, yet.
