Well now I am totally lost!
I was brought up to believe that breakfast was the most important meal of the day. Sets you up. And as you know, we’re all about how you start your day at the mo.
My daily intake is wildly variable and depends whether it’s a week-day or a weekend.
In an ideal world, I’ll start with an espresso, take my Springer out and make a healthy juice on my return. Frankly, this does involve considerable effort … all that veg and fruit washing. And please will someone invent a juicer that’s quick and easy to clean! But after a mix of oranges, carrots, ginger, celery and garlic, I feel perky and energetic. So it’s worth it.
Or I’ll do a juice and a lovely porridge with semi-skimmed milk, sultanas and honey. Does it make me eat more during the rest of the day? I have absolutely no idea. But I am going to watch this for the next few weeks.
But there are days when I crave a bacon sarnie! As I don’t normally have bacon in the fridge this increases the desire. But you know what, I give in to it. Moderation is the key isn’t it?
So I’m trying an experiment. For this week, I shall juice. Next week I’ll mostly be doing porridge … and maybe a bacon sarnie at the weekend.
Let us know what you think on Twitter or Facebook.
