If you are like me, you have started the New Year with plenty of health goals! One of my many goals is to lose some weight this year. Well, one of the tips that I have included in my weight loss journey is to eat a healthier breakfast that includes healthy proteins.

 My Caramelized Banana Oatmeal with Pomegranates and Blueberries for breakfast is also a great breakfast cereal. How about my Jamaican Cornmeal Porridge, Buckwheat Porridge,  and Banana Porridge

Health Benefits Of Almond Milk

 Almond milk is nutritious, low in calories, it enriched store-bought almond milk contains protein, calcium, iron, vitamin A, vitamin D, vitamin E, riboflavin, B12, Zinc, magnesium, it is cholesterol free, without any saturated fats and only contains 90 calories per serving.

Our bodies are constantly working to maintain health, our skin, hair, and nails are constantly being replenished daily. Our bones and tissues are constantly replacing old tissues with new. The body requires protein to properly function in repairing and maintaining a healthy vibrant body.

After a long night’s sleep (fast), the body requires a re-supply of the nutrition it burnt through while sleeping,  in the form of protein, carbohydrate, fat, vitamin and minerals. Eating a healthy breakfast containing protein is a great way to supply the body with the necessary nutrients it requires to properly function.

Studies have shown that eating protein for breakfast leads to a sustained feeling of fullness compared to other meals.
