Strawberry Cream Kasha

By February 23, 2017

I’m in shock when the women from my spin class tell me that they don’t eat something before coming to the class. After 5 minutes on a bike; if I haven’t eaten anything, I’m falling off of it. Without breakfast I get light headed, sleepy, impatient, confused [deer in headlights look – one day I’ll take a picture of myself with no breakfast and you’ll know what I mean], and my stomach does a lot of talking. Without breakfast I’m absolutely useless. But it wasn’t always like this. 5 years ago, I’d start my day off with a tall glass of leftover Slurpee [I lived across the street from a 7-11 and subjected myself to far too many Slurpees]. When I got to work I went to the vending machine and got myself a cookie. That was my morning. 2 hours into my shift I was light headed, sleepy, impatient, confused, and my stomach was spinning. Huh… At the time this felt normal to me. I thought people just got tired. I thought it was completely normal for my brain to feel like it was in constant fog. Boy was I wrong. Breakfast was the best thing that I think I’ve ever done for ME. My day now begins with a smoothie [lately it’s been Green Monsters with extra berries and hemp protein powder], then I head to the gym. When I get to work I always have 1/2 cup granola with 2 tablespoon of chia seeds soaked overnight in 1 cup of Almond Milk. I no longer feel light headed, I have enough energy to push me through the day, I don’t live in a fog, and my tummy is always satisfied and happy. The best time my tummy has had in awhile was yesterday morning when I made THIS breakfast! Hold on to your pants everyone. This breakfast will change your life!
