How I start my day with respect to breakfast.
Is breakfast is the most important way to start your day so it is successful?
A dietary presentation I attended talked about breakfast and how sugary cereals or other breakfast sandwiches etc can start you off every day in ongoing blood sugar cycles. Those highs and crashes cause us mortals to be ravenous earlier in the morning and eat other than what we should. Eating cereal usually means I am growly hungry by 10 a.m.
I need to lose some weight. Eating healthy and avoiding sugar crashes is important to me so I can control my eating.
Keeping it simple, I have started cooking myself a single egg for breakfast, and surprisingly, I feel full all morning. Hot sauce, and some tomato chopped up are all I add to the scrambled egg.
Over the weeks that’s a lot of eggs and mostly I manage to keep the eggshell out of my little scrambled egg.
I bought this little cooker which does the eggs one at a time, and if I want I can add a wrap which I just add for 30 seconds to warm up the wrap. If you cook the wrap too long it gets stiff.
It comes apart and is simple to wash for you practical types.
The egg comes out about an inch tall and really fluffy, takes 5 minutes. The hot sauce gives it a nice zing, and the chopped cherry tomato from my garden makes it sweet.
But my blog isn’t about cooking, or health tips.
I do often share my thoughts about life and use analogies. This is another situation where I am sharing my thoughts.
For weeks now I have been thinking about these cracked open eggs and how sometimes I have to scoop out some egg shells before I cook them or I’m going to be surprised by a crunchy scrambled egg.
I realize though that my breakfast is delicious and nutritious but one of these days I am going to accidentally leave in a small piece of eggshell. If one day I have a crunchy breakfast I wouldn’t throw it away or spit it out. Maybe eggshell has some dietary benefit I don’t know.
I wondered if there was an analogy for me, my life is pretty swell too. It’s not a 5 star breakfast in Michelin rated restaurant but I enjoy it, and am contented. It suits me and it benefits me.
My breakfast and my life, eggshells and all whenever I get them is still one to be grateful for, to be appreciated, and enjoyed.
Definitely the best part of my start to the day is not the breakfast at all, but being thankful to be alive, being content, and for the people in my life. I will endeavour to grateful for my breakfast and my life, eggshells or not.
Perhaps that is the most successful way to start the day, being thankful, and breakfast comes second.
Thank you for reading, do you have a formula for a successful day? or a healthy breakfast Idea? I’d love to hear your comments to this post.
