Good morning, this is Dr. Rob with your health blog for the week. I want to go over some of the things you may want to eat for breakfast. Now, if you’re doing the one pound rule that we talked about in our last nutrition workshop and would like to lose weight, a good way to do so is by eating romaine lettuce before each meal.
It’s about 5:30 in the morning right now and this is how I start off my mornings: I go into the refrigerator, grab my bag of romaine lettuce, tear out one of the hearts, and eat the leaves one by one. I eat the leaves like potato chips. You should have an entire heart of romaine lettuce before breakfast. What I typically like to eat after lettuce is a grapefruit, then a handful of my chlorella, and then a coconut yogurt in which I throw a couple scoops of collagen. I showed you a typical breakfast, but I also like to have oatmeal with frozen blueberries after the romaine.
Here’s the thing, you want to get the heart of lettuce in before the rest of your breakfast, because it will give you all of those phytochemicals and protective nutrients, such as the fiber, the enzymes, and the vitamins that will protect you against cancer, diabetes, and heart disease. If you’re looking to lose weight, it is also important to eat your veggies before anything else, to naturally lose and stabilize your weight.
We will be having another Nutrition Workshop on June 16th. Check with the front desk to sign up. There is limited seating.
