WHAT DID I EAT?
- Carrot & beet juice
- A bowl with five bananas cut into pieces, handful of blueberries, five medjool dates, coconut flakes, maple syrup and sugar
- One mango
- Four slices of bread, three with hummus and one with apple sauce. Topped off with olives, pickles and a little bit of sesame seeds.
- Dinner: soba noodles, cucumbers, steamed brocolli and mushrooms
I started eating solid food around noon. Pretty late you might think. I used to swear that eating breakfast was the most important meal of the day and you had to eat it as soon as you woke up. I thought breakfast provided all the energy you needed for the rest of the day. Now my thoughts on that have changed. Why? Because I think the dinner you ate the night before already provides you with sufficient energy for the next morning. No need to be stuffing in loads of food, especially if you aren’t hungry.
If you don’t feel like eating in the morning just drink a couple of glasses of water, drink some juice and go from there. Your body has gotten dehydrated from all those hours of sleep so the first thing it needs is water. Even more so when you ate late the night before. Your food won’t digest properly while sleeping and it’s possible you’ll wake up bloated, nauseous, tired or not feeling well. All reasons why you shouldn’t eat right after you wake up.
I’m not saying to starve yourself or something. Of course you should eat, but what I’m trying to say here is that you shouldn’t force yourself to do something that doesn’t feel right. Like shoving in tons of food a half hour after you wake up, because mainstream media says so. It’s your body, you will find out what it needs.
