A MovNat Breakfast

Though prepping this meal should take only a couple minutes, eating it should not.  The concept of “eating mindfully” is rehashed on every blog and news site these days, but a quick stroll downtown during lunch is all it takes to see few are listening.  Tablet devices and smartphones have revolutionized our lives in yes, positive ways, but they have no place near our insatiable fingers and overstimulated minds during meals.  For the meager 10-20 minutes it takes to chow down fresh fruit in creamy goodness topped with aromatic cinnamon, relish it: savor each bite, chew intentionally (would you be able to remember and describe the flavors?), close your eyes, inhale-exhale, smile (you have opposable thumbs, access to nourishing food, and taste buds), and begin your day with some goodness.

All you need to get the first day of the rest of your life started:
– Blueberries, peaches, and bananas (or whatever’s in season)
– Coconut milk (full fat)
– Cinnamon
– 3 minutes

– Hot green tea that will warm you up from the inside out on a crisp fall morning

    Pretty much as you describe it, except living in Seattle generally means less fruit. Right now I’m alternating eggs (cooked in coconut oil) and breakfast salads (pretty much whatever I find in the fridge, with olive oil and balsamic for dressing). Generally with tea, seated at the kitchen table with a great view of some bird filled trees out back (at least most of the year, right now it’s still dark when I eat). At least I can still hear the birds…

    That looks delicious. I’m not sure though, if mixing carbs and fat is the best thing, especially in the morning. According to studies, body doesn’t do well with mixed fuel and it will slow your metabolism down, even with healthy fats such as coconut oil. It’s supposed to put your leptin levels down and with that, the testosterone will go down too.

    I might be wrong and I’d appreciate opposing arguments too.

    a lot of food naturally comes with a mix of carbs, fat and protein.
    very unlike that it is much of a problem. Would be interessting to see the studies that say so.
