Easy Avocado Toast And Egg Breakfast

Easy Avocado Toast And Egg Breakfast

 Breakfast is one of my favorite meals because it is easy to make, and most important meal of the day. Starting the day off right gives me the energy to going as well as gives me the will power to ward off junk food. I love making avocado toast. It is such an easy dish to make and has such a beautiful presentation. Plus, everybody I have ever made it for loves it.
Ingredients: 1 servings
12-15 minutes
1/2 avocado
1 egg
1/3 cup of mushrooms, sliced
1/4 cup greens like spring mix or micro greens
1-2 slices of sourdough bread
2 tablespoon butter
Salt and pepper to taste
Heat up the pan with 1 tbsp butter and fry the egg while you toast the bread. Slice the avocado. Put the toasted bread on the plate and covered with avocado slices. Put the egg on top of the avocado or if you are using two pieces of bread, put the egg on the other piece of bread. Add the other tablespoon of butter in the pan with the mushrooms and sauté from 4-6 minutes until cooked. Garnish to plate with greens and mushrooms and add salt and pepper to taste.
What are some additional ingredients you like to add into your avocado toast? I love trying new things!

Make the Most of Each Day

Make the Most of Each Day

Each morning we wake up and we are faced with a new day.  In order to make the most of each day, you have to stop holding on to the issues that are holding us back.  It could be hurt feelings, or anger at a friend or family member.  Perhaps you are still mad at yourself for last night’s binge eating.  Maybe you are feeling guilty from skipping a workout.  Whatever it is, let it go.  Decide to be positive and take a happier outlook on life.  It’s a new day and anything is possible.  Just like you pick your clothes each day, pick your attitude for the day.  Decide what you want to achieve and make it happen. Make a commitment to live each day to the fullest and enjoy the moment.

Make the most of each day

No matter what you are going through or problems you have that’s weighing you down, you can decide how you are going to face them.  Deciding to be positive and looking on the bright side is the best way to make the most of each day and find inspiration in our lives.  It allows us to find happiness and face our challenges with humor and grace.

Eating Healthy on the Road

Eating Healthy on the Road

Living a healthy lifestyle involves planning ahead.  To make healthy meals at home involves meal planning for the week, grocery shopping, cooking, and preparing your meals in advance.  Whether you are trying to get in shape, lose weight or just maintain a healthy lifestyle, traveling often makes it more challenging. Often times my clients will be doing great at home, but when they have to travel for work or go on vacation, they get off track.  It’s hard to make healthy food choices when there isn’t as many healthy food options.

 

Eating Healthy on the Road

Recently, I’ve been traveling more and have found some easy healthy snacks that are widely available, from convenient stores to the airport.  However, it can be challenging to figure out what is actually healthy and what is not, especially when it”sounds healthy”.  I’ll go over the most widely available foods and snacks and go over their healthy rating.

How Healthy is your food

1) Chicken Salad or Tuna Salad

Most places make the salads with real mayo, which is filed with saturated fats, making this otherwise healthy option into an “okay” choice. In a 5 0z tuna salad with real mayo and bread, you will have about 40 grams of fat and almost 700 calories. There’s plenty of protein, but because of the fat content from the mayo, it isn’t the best healthy for you. If there is a low fat or fat free mayo option, then by all means, go for it, because it would be a 10.

With Real Mayonnaise:  HEALTHY RATING: 6

With Fat Free Mayonnaise:  HEALTHY RATING: 10

2) Sandwiches

Depending on the types of bread, a sandwich could be a sugar feast. White sugar, hidden as carbohydrates, are filled with empty calories. If you add in real mayo, it is even worse. If you are trying to eat healthy, look for whole wheat or while grain options with at least 3 grams of fiber power serving. Stay away from thick breads like cibatta since they are filled with empty calories. If you can, skip the cheese and it becomes even healthier. Use mustard for flavor.   And add some fresh fruit or vegetables to make it a complete meal.

Thick Bread:  HEALTHY RATING: 4

Whole Wheat Bread: HEALTHY RATING: 7

3) Salad

Salads are great choices when you are on the road, but skip the croutons because they are filled with empty calories. Add in a protein source like chicken or quinoa or beans and you have a healthy meal. Just make sure you choose a vinaigrette based dressing. Dressings can take an otherwise healthy salad and turn it into a fatty meal if you pick the wrong kind. A trick I picked up to get great flavor without the calories is to just do my fork into the dressing before I take a bite of salad. This allows me to use just the right amount of dressing and save all the empty calories.

HEALTHY RATING: 9-10

4) Wraps

Wraps are a good choice when it comes to grabbing a quick meal.  Many wraps are made with chicken salad or tuna salad. Try to look for chicken breast or turkey and stay away from breaded meats and anything with ranch sauce. Look for wraps with more filling.  If you can, skip the cheese and you will avoid a lot of the fat. Hummus adds allot of flavor to the wrap. Avocado is also a great flavor booster. Look for wraps with lots of vegetables to boost the healthy rating. Also, try to find whole wheat wraps to boost fiber.

HEALTHY RATING: 6

5) Hummus

Hummus is a great option for a filling snack, especially if it is served with vegetable sticks. Look for celery or carrots.  If possible, ask if you can get an extra serving of vegetables with the hummus.  If it is served with pita chips, keep in mind you will getting a double dose of carbs, so add in some vegetables or fruit to balance it out.

With Chips:  HEALTHY RATING: 7

With Veges:  HEALTHY RATING: 10

6) Fruits

Fresh fruits are one of the best choices you can make to eat healthy when you are traveling.  I love bring apples and oranges with me because they are easy to transport and are more “squash proof”.  I love bring bananas, but make sure you don’t put heavy items on top of it.  Once I put a banana in my purse and forgot it was there.   Needless to say, my purse smelled like bananas for a couple of days.  If you can have some protein such as a hard boiled egg or string cheese with it, it would be more satisfying and keep you fuller longer.

HEALTHY RATING: 10

fruit

 

7) Nuts

Nuts can be a healthy snack that is high in fiber and has good fats.  The best type of nuts to eat are raw unroasted nuts like raw almonds or cashews.  If you can only find roasted nuts, those are the second best.  Avoid flavored nuts… they are like candy or chips, full of sugar, salt and it is hard to exercise self control.  Keep in mind, nuts are very high fat, so just a handful will do.  Eat it with some fruit or vegetables and it would be a nice snack.

HEALTHY RATING: 9

Nuts

 

Try to stay away from muffins, pizzas, fried foods, and breaded meats.  If there is a Mexican place with tacos, you can still do pretty well with getting a taco without cheese and sour cream.  With all the temptations out there, being prepared is the best way to prevent you from making bad food choices.  Make sure you stay hydrated by drinking lots of water.  We often mistaken thirst for hunger.

 

What are you favorite travel food?  I’d love to hear from you.

What is Krav Maga?

What is Krav Maga?

Ever get tired of just going to the gym?   I know I sure do.  One of my favorite ways keep myself active and mix things up is to take classes.  I recently started taking Krav Maga and I love how it mixes fitness in with self defense.  What is Krav Maga?  Krav Maga is Israeli Martial Arts, used in the Israeli Military and now taught in the United States Military and law enforcement unit.  Martial Arts usually takes many years to master.  With Krav Maga, it is designed for real life scenarios and teaches you how to protect yourself in a short time.  In this video, my good friend and Krav Maga Coach Mark Dong, from Krav Fit Now, explains what Krav Maga is, and goes over some self defense moves.

Why Confidence is Sexy

Why Confidence is Sexy

Confidence is a really attractive quality in a man or a woman.  It doesn’t matter what size you are, whether you think you are attractive or not. Here is a real life example of why confidence is sexy. I was at a country bar with a group of co-workers when one of the co-workers, a really hot guy with muscular arms and a smile that shined like the sun came up to me and started talking. He was really cute and sexy, but he kept apologizing for the silliest things.

 

 

woman-at-bar

 

 

Him: “Sorry, I am such a bad dancer.”

Me: “No you’re not.”

 

Him: “Are you laughing at me?”

Me: “No, I’m just happy.”

 

Him: “I hope I’m not offending you.”

Me: “No, I’m having a really good time.”

 

It got to the point where I was hoping he would just stop talking because he was killing the mood! I was having a really great time, but because of his insecurity, I was annoyed. The thing is, we are all attracted to self confidence. Nothing is sexier than a confident man or woman. Sometimes, we all have moments where we are unsure of ourselves, but the best thing to do is to take a deep breath, smile, and act confident. When you act confident, people will respond. When you smile, you will get smiles in return. Happiness attracts happiness, and you will never be without friends. It doesn’t matter what you are wearing or whether or not you are the perfect size or weight. You are perfect the way you are TODAY. Lesson of the day? Be confident in your own skin. And my advice for the hot co-worker: “Just be yourself. You are amazing but you just don’t know it.”
