Audra Lowe: And today’s getting fit in Andrea tells us the secrets to a true power breakfast. Andrea: They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day and still sometimes you get off the door and you realize that you haven’t eaten yet. But let me give you some tips on what I eat for breakfast and what you should be eating to. First off, you want to make sure you hydrate so I got a bottle of water, make sure that you’re having at least 16 ounces with your breakfast and you can start that up right when you wake up in the morning. The next you want to get some antioxidants so I got grapes and honey dew melon. They are high in water content which means they’re going to fill me up and they taste great. Now the balance of my blood sugar, I got some calcium and my yogurt. Now Greeks yogurt has more protein than traditional yogurt. This one cup is 20 grams of protein. That’s as much as a four-ounce chicken breast. Protein is important because it helps stabilize your blood sugar and make those carbohydrates more use. Now as far as the rest of the day, make sure you’re combining protein and carbohydrates in your snack, lunch and dinner. That will help you feel full and have a lot of energy. My last tip is make sure you get at least 10 minutes of walking every morning. You can improve your walk by wearing a core balancing shoe, I have on shape up some Sketchers, but you can also do some good things like knee bends while you’re walking or hold the squat in the elevator. You know breakfast is the most important meal. It starts you out right and it’s going to make you have a great day.
