Salba Smart Chia & Purely Elizabeth ~ A Healthy Start (**GIVEAWAY**)

This product was provided free of charge in exchange for an honest review.

Breakfast is such an important part of the day.  We lead such busy lives, it is good to start off the day on the right foot.  There are so many reasons to have a good, well-rounded breakfast each morning.  I know that when I don’t take a moment to have something nutritious, I usually am regretting it later in the day, whether it leads to mid-morning snacking or that running-on-empty feeling.

Just like cars need gas, our bodies need fuel for energy, clarity and overall good attitudes. Eating breakfast also increases metabolism, and studies have shown weight loss is easier for those who eat breakfast. When you keep your body from getting the fuel it needs, there’s a tendency to overeat during lunch and dinner. Similarly, eating the right breakfast foods can help boost your day.

Here’s Salba Smart’s guide to a healthy breakfast:

· Eggs – You’ve probably seen all the commercials for the “Incredible Edible Egg,” and here’s why: eggs are a great source of protein, which gives you energy for the day, and contains nutrients like Vitamin D.

· Oatmeal – It’s such a classic breakfast food, but it’s often overlooked. Oats are rich in Omega-3 fatty acids, folate and potassium. Whether you cook on a stove, grab a pouch to-go, or heat in the microwave, oatmeal is a quick and filling breakfast that gets the job done. Plus, it’s one of the best foods to add Salba Chia seeds for a boost of fiber, protein and iron.

· Greek Yogurt – Another great grab-n-go option, greek yogurt is packed with calcium and protein, and mixing in fruit can add sweetness and flavor.

· Grapefruit – Add a little sweetness to breakfast by eating grapefruit. The tart, tangy and sweet fruit is filled with Vitamin C, which can help reduce cold symptoms, as well as Vitamin A and fiber.

The best part? You can add more nutrition to these foods by just sprinkling on 1 Tablespoon of Salba Chia Whole Seeds!

Salba Chia seeds

No matter what I have for breakfast, I add a spoonful of chia seeds to it.  This includes foods like yogurt, dry cereal, oatmeal, smoothies, and more.  You can even stir it into a cup of juice.  How much easier could it be than to add some chia seeds to your morning routine?  These little seeds are packed with all kinds of health benefits.
