Clean Eating Breakfast
But if you have ever thought about eating clean (and I do suggest you think about it!), this would be an example of a typical breakfast that combines protein and complex carbohydrates.
Eating this big of a breakfast is a work in progress for me for sure, as normally I would just have the oatmeal (with strawberries and flax seed). So, adding in 3 egg whites isn't always easy because I am just not that hungry.
Another go-to clean breakfast for me is a 3 egg white + 1 whole egg omelet loaded with mushrooms, onions, spinach & zucchini (or any other veggies that were leftover from the day before) and topped with salsa and served with a piece of whole grain toast.
And of course, you need to include water!!! Lots of it!!! So much more water than I have ever drank (seriously, I go to the bathroom a lot). Every day for breakfast I have 16oz. of water and 12 oz of green tea.
