I have been having intermittent Nutrition discussions with many who have wanted to dig deeper to reach goals, understand more, and get the most out of their fitness discipline. What I have found to be a consistent linchpin in everyones lifestyle is the use of sugar. So I am here to tell you straight out... I feel you... I feel for you. Sugar is pervasive and so addictive that I understand completely why you have such a hard time kicking it. Caffeine, Nicotine, Sugar. They are no joke and to limit or cut them from your lifestyle, takes dedication and support.
What I will offer is recipe solutions so that you can enjoy cooking and begin to make the switch to a no-sugar lifestyle.
Today I am going to give you a recipe that Cristin and I use often on special weekends or that she makes a lot of and we keep for breakfast treats. And since most people often times grab the nearest thing (usually carbohydrates) first thing in the morning, I think this is a great way to set yourself up for success so that when added to a high fat/protein breakfast... your body will respond well to weight loss or performance.
With this recipe what you will notice is the omission of sugar outside of the banana itself. And let this be a heads up that if you plan and live consciously, fruit intake is really all you will need to fulfill your sugar cravings. You will get some good fats and simplicity. Enjoy and thrive!
