A morning routine is a great way to kick-start an awesome day!
Some people prefer to jump out of bed and hit the gym or go for a run first thing. I am NOT one of those people 🙃 lol. But I admire those who do!
My morning routine has been the same for years, which is one of the great things about routines – they tend to stick! That can be GREAT if it’s a good routine, but not so great if it’s NOT starting your day off on the right foot. 🧐
I prefer an hour to myself in the mornings, usually on the back deck, and always with a collagen coffee. That’s when I plan out my day and get my head on straight – before I greet the rest of the world. ☕️ (this “me time” is definitely necessary !!)
My sweet 2-legged and 4-legged daughters saying good morning 😘 🐾🐾
Guess which one is my favorite!
answer: it depends on the day… 😅
My daughter starts her day with a collagen coffee as well. She’s turning 26 next week, and in that hard-working phase of her 20’s where she’s working double shifts at two jobs – and somehow finding time to hit the gym in between. 👀 respect! 🙌
That’s her coffee above. She likes the Cinnamon Toast collagen from Perfect Keto with whipped cream. I’m a little more “vanilla” – except not. I like the Perfect Keto unflavored collagen powder in my coffee. 😉 This is mine, on the deck of course:
It actually IS unflavored, not salty of funky like some other brands – plus adds a nice creamy texture to my coffee. Then I can add in sugar free syrups for flavor, heavy cream – or you can fix your coffee however you prefer without the collagen messing up the taste.
I also use their Almond Butter Brownie protein bars, but those are out of stock right now. (boo!) 😏 I’m down to my last one too! I love those for a quick meal replacement at my desk or on the go…
I haven’t tried their brownie & pancake mixes yet. Have you?
I got some to try. 🥞 😋
I’ve been using their collagen & bars for years now though, and those are my two main staples from Perfect Keto – and that’s pretty much been my morning routine for awhile now.
I’ll have my collagen coffee when I get up, then a bar closer to lunch – and that holds me over until a simple dinner of meat & greens. That makes the day easy! ✅
My daughter is staying with me still, until early next year, so on days she’s home she’ll usually make “breakfast” for lunch or dinner.
She isn’t a morning eater either, but we both LOVE breakfast foods. 🥰
Some people like to start their day with a solid meal, some like to have their bigger meal at dinner. I used to like a big breakfast, and honestly can’t remember when I switched, but either is okay in my book.
I always say: “Eat when you’re hungry, don’t when you’re not” (ie listen to your body!). I don’t personally thing there’s a right or wrong way to eat outside of that – basically: mindful eating.
But I do think a morning routine can make a big difference to your day, every day, and ultimately your lifestyle and your goals! 🎯❣️
Speaking of “breakfast for dinner” – I love that Perfect Keto came out with a GOOD low carb breakfast cereal earlier this year. Sometimes that’s just the perfect thing at the end of a long day when you don’t want to cook. 👌 Don’t you agree??
I love the Honey Nut and the Cinnamon cereal mixed together, with unsweetened almond milk or milkadamia – plus raspberries & blueberries. 🫐🥣
If you’ve been around awhile you already know I am NOT one to meal prep.
My daughter is the exact opposite. She prefers to have her week laid out, and prepare plenty of things to grab & go – or to heat up quick meals.
She’ll make up things like boiled eggs, sausage balls (just sausage + cheese mixed up & rolled into balls & baked crisp!), or cook up a big batch of “chicken fried rice” (with cauliflower rice), etc.
As we prepare to kick off the Fall Challenge, I would love to hear about YOUR morning routine, what works best for you – and/or what you’d most like to change. Leave a comment and let’s discuss ideas & options, and get some inspiration from each other. 😉
