So this right here, is my ultimate balanced breakfast. I've tried a lot of things, to see what works for me. We all eventually figure out whats best for us. And basically if I have this breakfast everyday. I'm quite the happy camper ;) If I have just oatmeal, not so much :| I love bread first of all, let me come clean about that. I used to eat 2 pieces with almond butter on it every morning, and still be hungry later (for more bread). I've come to realize going gluten free, not for me. I love my bread, we've been over this now ;) So treating myself to one of the healthiest breads, in the morning with some peanut butter or almond butter on top, is just fine! Companied with a solid protein, such as egg whites. Is great. And getting a fruit in on the side, even better.
I'm truly blessed to be able to afford these things in my life. and live near a really nice grocery store, etc. I don't take it for granted. I will say I never buy anything extra, like clothes or manicures, etc. I just pay bills and buy food. And occasionally go on fun dates with my boyfriend. But what extra income I do have, if any :/ Is spent on colorful, fresh food. I chose to eat this way for my health. I care about myself. I take care of me. I feel good. Thats all I want for myself. So getting my bread fixe each morning is just fine ;) Don't steer clear of gluten just because you've heard its bad for you. Do your research, try a detox from it and see if it improves how you feel. If you feel just fine with or with out it. It's ok to have it! Just make sure it's the good kind. Meaning sprouted whole grain is my top pick. I love ezekiel brand. If not the next best thing is just organic %100 whole wheat. Yum! Otherwise. White breads a big fat no. :p
