Starting the day on the right foot can set you up for success.

Healthy and Practical Morning Routine

One of my favorite topics is to ask successful people is: "What's your morning routine?"

I've provided many tips and tricks within the walls of the i28 Challenge. One of the biggest challenges for those in a traditional job with an early start, with kids, and a dog to walk, and INFINITY Training to complete... is TIME. 

There's so many morning rituals and routines you can try until you find the winning combination for yourself.

i28 Challenge: How to Snack Like A Nutritionist with Alanna Brown

HOW TO SNACK LIKE A NUTRITIONIST: With Alanna Brown

Alanna has her own little nutrition blog Positive Eating and offers her assistance in helping clients participating in our #i28Challenge make some simple healthy choices. We had some questions come through which Alanna has been kind enough to answer for us. 

She also adds a few of her personal favorite options when she's feeling like eating something sweet.  Here's some key points from the video:

  • Now that you're exercising you'll be more hungry. It's perfectly normal, and don't worry about it.
  • 3 healthy things to look for in a healthy snack are protein, fats and fibre.
  • Protein helps satisfy
  • Fats and fibre help slow digestion
  • Feeling like something sweet? A fruit and a nut butter is a good option
  • Smoothies or smoothie bowls are perfect
  • Small protein shake
  • A soup with wholemeal toast or an egg.
  • Working in an office? Eggs cooked in a microwave with some spinach 
  • Working in an office? Take a boiled egg to work, with salad or carrots
  • Working in an office? Take a boiled egg to work, with spinach or avocado.
  • If you're vegetarian? Try hommus, or a bean dip with carrots, radishes and/or cucumber
  • Avoid protein bars or protein balls but be careful it's not full of sugar
  • Greek yogurt is one of Alanna's all time favorites. Have it with some fruit or muesli. It'll keep you feeling full and it's good for the gut
  • Drink water. Drink water. Drink water: Apart from the obvious reasons... it will also also curb your hunger as sometimes hunger is confused with a lack of hydration.
  • Mindful tip: Take your time when eating. Don't eat something you don't feel like eating.Savoir the food. Eat it slower. 

Thanks Alanna!! We'll definitely be following this advice!
