Grain, gluten and dairy free breakfast: A savoury breakfast with healthy fats, complex carbohydrates and protein that will keep you satiated for longer thus preventing cravings later on in the day. Don’t be afraid of fats! The addition of turmeric and pepper helps with the absorption of vitamin A from the eggs, which keeps your eyes, skin and immune system healthy.
I know dicing vegetables can be time consuming, so I prefer to do it the night before, so you have more time in the morning to get ready for your day. Meal prepping and planning is essential for a successful stress-free healthy lifestyle!
