Time. Time in the mornings to put together a nutritious breakfast is something I lack. Herding my cats, (aka getting my 3 daughters dressed and out of the door) before work leaves me very little time to prepare breakfast never mind time to sit down and actually eat it. This is why one of my favourite on-the-go breakfasts is the microwave egg white omelette. Egg whites are very low in calories (approximately 17 cals/egg) yet are very high in protein (3.6g). Protein is converted very slowly by the body into glucose, which prevents the over production of insulin as a response, which then prevents the so-called sugar crash. By starting my day with protein instead of a sugary cereal or muffin, I prevent the glucose, insulin over-production, crash, craving cycle. I’ve even been known to drive my egg white omelette to work still in it’s cup and eat it at work. As well, these can be made AT WORK if you have a fridge and a microwave available to you to keep your egg beaters and chopped veggies in. That way you can make a quick breakfast, lunch or even a mid-afternoon snack at work.
