PROTEIN BASED BREAKFASTS-A healthier start to the day.
The nutrition plan at Body Fix Transformation Centre, York advises that changing to a protein based breakfast is one of the best decisions you can make to kick start new healthier eating habits.
-Boosts the metabolism.
-Keeps you fuller for longer. Remaining in control of your appetite will help you make better food choices throughout the day.
-Is especially useful to re-fuel and repair your body after a morning work out.
Protein packed smoothies are always available from the Body Fix Health Store within the centre. They are ideal as a quick and nutritious breakfast. The Very Berry Smoothie contains PNI Lean Shake Plus protein powder, oats, almond milk, banana, cherries, blueberries and cinnamon.
It’s a good idea to try and fit vitamin boosting veg into your morning meal too. Green vegetables such as kale, which is rich in Vitamin C and Iron packed spinach work great in an omelette.
If the thought of eating vegetables in the morning makes you a bit queasy then try PNI Super Greens powder, which is also sold at Body Fix Health Store. Mix this superfood powder into a morning drink and the 23 plant derived essential nutrients will leave feeling you energised and ready for your day.
