A “Diet” for Foodies: Breakfast Options to Eat Your Way to a Slimmer Healthier You

Recently I have created some menu options for some coworkers to help them create a healthier menu while still losing weight. No, I am not a nutritionist nor am I a rail thin model. I am a foodie that tries to remain conscious of what I consume. Here are a few breakfast options that I shared with them. Remember that I AM NOT A DOCTOR. Use common sense and consult your Dietitian or Doc before starting any program. I caution you to be careful with the eggs…make sure you buy them from a local organic farmer until the salmonella scare is over.

The key to any weight loss system is moderation and control of your food. Know where it comes from and how it’s prepared by making it yourself. Cheers to a a love for food. Email with any questions at sugarlipslifestyletips@gmail.com
