Diet & Nutrition: Eat protein in the morning

eggIf you have trouble waking in the morning this may be due to a combination of poor sleep, a lot of toxins which will disturb the sleep-related immune system (it works at a too high speed) and low adrenal function.

Coffee is often used to wake up in the morning, but large amounts of coffee can stress the adrenal glands. Over time, a need for coffee, often together with simple and fast carbohydrates is created in order to cope with the day. This may in turn lead to poor sleep and a vicious circle is created.

The adrenals need protein to function well and if you are struggling with low energy levels in the morning, the worst option is a high carbohydrate breakfast or no breakfast at all. A carbohydrate rich breakfast often leads to a drop in blood sugar levels with the consequence that you risk of leaning towards eating sweet or drink more coffee during the day in order to just cope. This contributes to the vicious circle even more. Go for protein in the morning. Try organic eggs with some steamed organic broccoli and spoon of organic extra virgin coconut oil for a couple of months. It will probably do wonders for the adrenals. Chew properly and feel the energy!

    Sprinkle a teaspoon of ground flaxseed’s over your cereal / yogurt or eggs. Next to fish flaxseeds are one of the best sources of omega-3 fatty acids.
