Quick and Easy Breakfast Recipes

I couldn’t sleep in this AM (crazy, I know).  I have an 830am class and I was awake from about 4am on.  So needless to say I had a lot of time to make a big breakfast.  That is usually not the case. 

Here is a link to Women’s Health and recipes for quick and easy breakfasts.  They include:

  • An oatmeal recipe
  • Waffle sandwich
  • Burrito
  • Mushroom cheese scramble
  • Something that resembles a dessert made of breakfast food
  • Omelet
  • Pancakes
  • Herb scramble
  • Egg and cheese sandwich
  • Tex-Mex

Avoid a Cold: Eat, Sleep and Exercise

EverydayHealth.com says paired with washing your hands frequently, eating well, sleeping enough and exercising can prevent colds.  Eating, sleeping and exercising boosts your immune system.  Whole foods and vitamins (if your diet is lacking) can help you make it through this winter without the sniffles.  Check out the article here.

On the note of colds, here’s a good question:

Q: Should you work out when you have a cold? Anything special to keep in mind?

 A: The rule of thumb for exercising while sick is called the above/below-the-neck rule. If your symptoms appear above the neck (runny nose, sneezing, sore throat), then yes, you can continue with a low-intensity workout. Studies have shown that exercising at a moderate-intensity level does not intensify cold symptoms or compromise the immune system. Avoid high-intensity exercise, such as heavy weight lifting and high-intensity aerobic training, which has been shown to have a negative impact on the immune system during a cold or any respiratory infection.If your symptoms are below the neck (diarrhea, intense coughing, vomiting, fever), then the American College of Sports Medicine and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention suggest you let your illness run its course before resuming physical activity

Fast Food and Depression

I know that I get depressed when I eat fast food for the reason that I just broke my diet and ate about a day’s worth of calories in one gorging. 

But scientists’ say that fast food and depression are linked.  People who ate fast food were more likely to develop depression, and people who ate whole foods (ex. Eat Clean Diet) had lower odds of developing depression.

Check out the study here.  Just another reason to not use fast food as my treat….now I just need someone to tell me no!

How Can I Keep On Track?

diet1

From EverydayHealth.com:

Q: Every time I’ve tried improving my diet, I’m good for a few weeks and then I falter. Do you have any advice on how to keep at it?

A:  I think everyone can relate to this feeling — when starting a new project, there’s an excitement that not only fades with time but also weakens when confronted with the resistance we have to changing our habits. The new challenge is to stick to your new routine even after that initial motivation fades.Here are some ways to keep yourself on track:

  •  Why did I slip up today?
  • Are there patterns in my setbacks?
  • Do I tend to struggle with the same types of foods or a specific time of day?
  • Is there something going on in my life that is stressing me out?
  • Forgive your mistakes.
