Eat More Veggies For Breakfast!

Filed under: FoodHealthMariko Amekodommo

Mariko Pot

Eating lots of vegetables is important for a Fit lifestyle! Start adding them to the most important meal of the day for an extra boost of energy and to kickstart your metabolism.

The easiest way is to have an assortment of vegetables prepared and ready to go! I like to peel and cube different squash (like butternut, acorn or kabocha) or mild roots (golden beets, parsnips or turnips) and bake in the oven until soft (400 degrees for 30-40 minutes). Store in the fridge until ready to use! If I want a sweet breakfast, I'll reheat the veggies, and garnish with chopped nuts, spice (like cinnamon, cardamon or nutmeg) greek yogurt and a drizzle of agave.

Want something savory? Try adding grated cheese, bacon bits and green onions! The possibilities are endless, nutritious and delicious!

We all know that regularly getting under six hours of sleep a night isn't healthy.

Well puffy eyes and a crappy mood should only be the least of your worries.

Various studies have found that long term sleep deprivation can increase the risk of serious health problems, like obesity and type II diabetes.

A new study found that sleep deprivation impairs fat cells' ability to respond to insulin, a hormone that regulates metabolism and is a big piece in the diabetes puzzle.

Mariko 4 Recipes

Brazilian Breakfast Avocado Pudding

A friend shared this recipe with me; one of her favorites from growing up in Brazil. Avocados are a great way to start the day: they are high in vitamin B,K,E and Fiber to kickstart your metabolism and boost energy, while helping your hair and skin tone. This recipe is also great for dessert - just garnish with a drizzle of chocolate syrup!

1 large Avocado
1-2 Tablespoons fresh lime juice
1-2 Tablespoons sweetener (agave, honey or superfine sugar)
pinch of salt

Put all ingredients in a blender, and mix until smooth and creamy. I often serve mine in a martini glass - it makes breakfast more fabulous! Eat as is, or garnish with your favorite berries and granola. Enjoy!
