THE SATISFYING POWER OF EGGS & AVOCADO

My favorite meal is breakfast. When I travel, I look at what people eat for breakfast. Many breakfasts are unhealthy because they are based on high amount of sugar:

  • latte and croissant
  • granola cereal bar and juice
  • toast with jam and hot chocolate

Today I want to talk about the qualities that avocado and eggs have in a healthy diet. They are a very good option to include in your breakfast. I encourage you to try them and see how satisfying they are.

Avocado is rich in vitamin E, potassium, magnesium, folic acid and omega 3. Omega 3 is a healthy fat. It also rich in fiber. So including a quarter of avocado in your breakfast or in your afternoon snack won’t make you hungry for several hours.

Eggs have a high protein content of high biological value, healthy fats (monounsaturated), especially in the yolk and other nutrients such as phosphorus, sodium, potassium, vitamin A and folic acid.

Both foods are very low in sugar. Here are some examples of possible breakfasts or snacks. The egg is poached for not increasing the amount of fat. I take them with rye bread which is also very low in sugar and include spinach leaves, rocket salad, chopped tomatoes, seeds, almonds … to increase its nutritional value.

Do you fancy them? Let me know your thoughts.

 

BOROUGH MARKET

I’d like to tell you of a market in London that I love, full of life, colors, fruits, vegetables… The Borough Market: http://boroughmarket.org.uk/. I can not count of times that I have been since I live here. Reminds me of my city, Barcelona.

Take advantage this January and eat fruits and vegetables rich in vitamin C that are in season: oranges, lemons, Brussels sprouts, broccoli. They are also very rich in vitamin C: strawberries, kiwi, red and green peppers, tomatoes, spinach and cantaloupe. Vitamin C promotes cell renewal, stimulates the immune system and stimulates collagen formation. It also helps absorb iron and it is an antioxidant.

  1. Monika Posiadlo: I bought Epsom salts after reading your post on your blog. I just tried them last night, soaking my ankle in warm water with the salts for 30 minutes or so. I’m hoping it will help my inflammation!
