I use to start every morning with oats, a green smoothie, fruit cereal or something else that was rich in natural sugars, carbs, and fiber. I thought because I was consuming all the fiber, and that it was whole foods, I would be fine with all the sugar. I was wrong.

It didn’t take long (30-60 minutes) for me to feel like I had to lay down and take a nap after eating. Breakfast is supposed to offer energy, not leave me feeling more tired than when I woke up!

Some people can handle that kind of carb and sugar load first thing in the morning. My fire constitution body cannot. I have learned that eating something rich in protein with a balance of carbs and a bit of healthy fats is the best way to go for my body type and metabolism.

I have experimenting with different breakfasts (like this cereal – recipe below) and found that by eating less carbs and fruits first thing in the morning, I’m able to keep my blood sugar, mood, and energy levels all stable. Throw in a few drops of liver bitters to my morning water and I am REALLY good to go πŸ‘Œ

Comment below what type of breakfast (or no breakfast) leaves you feeling most balanced along with your zodiac sign!

Often our zodiac is very telling of what our body constitution is and how we metabolize different foods. I’d love to hear what you all have to say!

Homemade Protein Cereal

🌱 1/2 Cup Homemade Chia Pudding
> 1/4 Cup Chia Seeds
> 1 Cup Hemp Milk
> 1 tsp Vanilla
> 1 Tbsp Cacao
> 1 Tbsp Maple Syrup
(Mix and let sit in fridge overnight)
🌱 2 Tbsp Beans (I used great northern)
🌱 1 Tbsp Nuts &/or Seeds
🌱 Small Handful of Berries
🌱 95 to 100% Cacao, chopped

Simply add it all to a bowl and add more Hemp Milk to enjoy as you would cereal 🌞

This cereal is rich in not only protein, but also fiber, omega 3s, b-vitamins, and antioxidants to leave you feeling satiated, energized, and focused throughout the day. All with just enough natural sugars to satisfy that sweet tooth without the crash.

Enjoy!
