Weight a Minute Monday! Breakfast of Champions

We are delighted that so many of you Spicy Ladies are taking your health and wellness seriously! In last weeks Weight a Minute Monday post, we discussed some do's and don'ts, specifically the importance of not skipping breakfast. As a result we received many emails wanting breakfast specifics and recommendations from Dalana, our expert for this series.

So we asked Dalana, what should we eat for breakfast? And this is what she said...
"Here are some suggestions for breakfast. You can mix and match them if you'd like some variety. According to, you should aim to get 20-25 percent of your daily calories from breakfast, which means 350 if you are on a 1500 calorie a day diet.

Oatmeal w/ cinnamon to taste (instant regular flavor is okay)
Cold cereals with low fat milk such as Cheerios (Plain or multi grain) and a banana
2 egg whites with a slice of 100% whole wheat toast
1 cup of cranberries with 2 tbsp of plain yogurt and 1 tsp of honey
Yoplait light yogurt (fruit flavors)
Fresh fruit salad
Low fat cottage cheese and any kind of fruit
Smoothie:blend yogurt and your favorite fruit

Healthy breakfast bars that are high in fiber and low in sugar (i.e. Kashi bars) are okay when there is not enough time to prepare breakfast. But, try to prepare a homemade healthy breakfast as often as possible."

So there you have it ladies! Hopefully that will help you start your day with a healthy breakfast so that you can kick start you body's metabolism and be one step closer to that hot and spicy body!

*Flavor Tip- Get up a few minutes early or on the weekend when you have extra time, prepare a healthy breakfast in bed! Take turns feeding eachother and for extra spice & flavor get in a "quickie" calorie burn...if you know what I mean!
