What about breakfast?

Stack of powdered doughnuts


ENERGY DRAIN: Your breakfast. A bowl of sugary cereal, a doughnut or a bagel might give you a quick burst of energy, but without some protein, you’ll be in slow motion before lunch. Carbohydrates—especially refined carbs—are broken down very quickly so blood sugar soars and the brain shuts down production of orexin, a neuropeptide responsible for feeling alert.

ENERGY BOOST: Eat protein, good fats and some carbohydrates to control blood sugar and avoid getting a burst of glucose. Try scrambled eggs on whole wheat toast, oatmeal with yogurt and a handful of seeds or an omelet with cheese, tomato and mushrooms. Smoothies with fruit, whey powder and almond milk are also a good option. Instead of using bananas in smoothies, try avocados.

My favorite is maple/brown sugar oatmeal with some powdered peanut butter mixed in. It tastes like a peanut butter - oatmeal cookie but it's really good for me! No fat and lots of protein. Yummy.

That really sounds good! Where do you get the powdered peanut butter? I don't think I've seen it anywhere.

One thing that I like for breakfast is yogurt, pineapple, and almonds with a little drizzle of honey.
