Hearty Breakfast Bowl

You wake up late and fly out the door. Obviously, breakfast didn’t make the cut today. Worst case you’ll just pick up a bagel at the coffee shop or check the lunchroom for some pastries (because there’s always some type of baked good in there, amiright?).

This may be an all too familiar situation for you because it definitely is for most people.

Breakfast is always the first to go when we’re in a hurry— even though we all know it’s official slogan is “the most important meal of the day.”

But we sacrifice our health for our schedule all the time.

When we skip breakfast, or opt for a sugary and refined grab-n-go, we put our blood sugar and adrenals on a joy ride aka promoting inflammation and oxidative stress.

The two BIG time causes of acne and skin problems.

In my program, The Clear Skin Solution, I teach my clients how to heal their acne from the inside out. One of the things we focus on is filling their plate with quality protein, fibre and fat (PFF). These three macronutrients help prevent your blood sugar from spiking throughout the morning and leave your adrenals feeling calm and composed. So put down the cereal, muffins, and bagels. Choose whole food options to help support clear skin.

This Hearty Breakfast Bowl is one of my favourites to fill me up and provide the PFF that my body needs. Let’s break it down so you can see what I mean in the PFF department:

  • Protein: pastured-raised egg
  • Fibre: sweet potato (spinach, avocado, and red pepper also kick in some fibre)
  • Fat: avocado

See. Simple.

Let's get your skin finally cleared up.

After years of dealing cystic breakouts, I cleared up my skin for good by fixing my gut, liver and hormones. I went back to school for nutrition and then said seeya later to my job in television. I launched an online nutrition business (before working from home was a thing) so I could help as many women as possible feel confident AF in their own skin, too.

"My skin is definitely consistently good now."

I feel like I didn't know why I would go through good spells before and then terrible breakouts. My energy levels and motivation have also returned. This is all so huge for me.

"I actually enjoy the look of my face with less make-up."

 I use to wear a lot of powder and concealer to cover the break out areas, as well as to hide my scars. Both my breakouts and scars are lessening in amount and redness!!
