I’ve been telling myself for weeks months that I need to train myself to be a morning person. The thing is, I’m not one at all. I’m a creature of the night, and sleeping at 4am is totally normal for me. With evening events and commitments, it’s been hard to get my workouts in by the time I get home (or when I do, I end up putting less effort in because I’m so tired). SO, this week I’ve started to make a considerable shift to waking up early (6am early…who am I?) to move my workouts in the morning and having breakfast right after. This is all very new, so I’m hoping putting it out in the internetS will force me to heed this new routine. In order to do that though, I knew I needed some motivation and I figured my biggest one is still the same: food. The more varied I make my meals, the easier it will be to get through my runs to get back home and eat…right? Simple math :D.
I’ve been looking up meals that contain more protein, and less sugar and came up with this simple meal:
2 whole wheat slices of bread, toasted
2 hard boiled eggs
3 cherry tomatoes
extra virgin olive oil
Slice hard-boiled eggs, and tomatoes and set aside. Toast two slices of bread (I used whole wheat). After it’s toasted, spread low fat cottage cheese over both slices. Top with eggs and tomatoes, and season with pepper, kosher salt, and a pinch of garlic salt. Drizzle with a teaspoon of extra virgin olive oil. Enjoy!
