People who know me well know how much looooove a big breakfast. Every year for my birthday my main request is to go out for a giant breakfast at Cora’s. I love it there because the food is fresh, you always get a side of yummy fruit and it’s just become a tradition for Steve and I to go there.
I’m the type of person who gets up in the morning and eats within 20 minutes of waking. I am usually always hungry in the morning, if I’m not I get worried that I may be coming down with something. I believe part of the reason I’m hungry in the morning is because I’m hypoglycemic so overnight by glucose levels deplete and I awake in a hungry state.
On Monday, Wednesday, and Friday I teach a 10am boot camp class. I wake up at 7 or so and eat breakfast by 7:30 and then watch the news, hang out on Pinterest and pack my lunch for the day. I have a quick protein shake right before I leave the house and then teach class. I try and have double the carbs I do in any of my other meals at breakfast regardless of whether or not I’m on a high or low carb day. By the time 11 rolls around my stomach is growling and telling me it’s time to eat again. Now it’s not like I have a small breakfast. I usually have oatmeal with a serving of fruit and some eggs. I’m just a hungry girl. However I can’t have anything too heavy before I teach class or I feel really sluggish and weighed down.
That’s why I love Tuesdays and Thursdays during the week. On these days I teach a 6am class, which I wake up at 4am to get ready for (I need to be awake for a while before I get going). When class is done at 7 I drive home and am back in bed by 7:20. I wake up at 9 or 9:30 and make myself a carefully crafted delicious big second breakfast. This breakfast keeps me fueled up and ready to go. Tuesday and Thursday are high carb days for me as I tend to do squats and deadlifts on these days along with some conditioning.
I decided to post a pictorial of my behemoth breakfast.
I start off with 1 potato which I dice and then steam
