I started working out this week… I am not, nor ever will be a big fan of the whole thing, but sometimes we just have to suck it up, and do what is good for us. When you’re a single parent to a special needs child, the need to be there for them for the long haul is all the more apparent, and I feel like sort of a jerk for not trying harder sooner.
I figured I better make sure and have a good breakfast that included whole grains, relatively low fat and plenty of lean protein. , When I eat eggs, I generally stick mostly to the whites, but here the yolk added a bit of fat and moisture to the meal, as well as a few extra nutrients. If you want to skip the yolk, drizzle a tsp of olive oil over the wheat berries & beans to make up for the loss.
