For a complete control-freak like myself, it is comforting if I can, at the very least, keep both the beginning and the end of my day fairly consistent from a consumption standpoint…Nutritious Book-Ends, if you will.
As a new Movin’ Mama, it is TOUGH to keep anything the same on the day-to-day, let alone something to do with YOU versus your children, or your job, or your household at large. I have personally found solace in making sure I keep these two things the same just about everyday:
- BREAKFAST to jumpstart my day: 1 egg, 1 piece of wheat toast, a side of fruit and 1/2 of an avocado. It takes me all of 5 minutes to make, while my little one hangs out in his bouncer (And if you must know, yes, I have a sunflower obsession). Cooking a dozen hard-boiled eggs as prep has helped for busy weeks, too.
2. GREEN TEA: 1 cup before bed…I prefer Zen by Tazo, as they have K-cups compatible with my Keurig machine. And it only has about 40mg of caffeine, so it doesn’t keep me awake…but my baby certainly does! Wine is of course another alternative, which is healthy for my soul!
