Low Sugar High Protein Breakfast and BCAA’s

Happy Friday!

This morning I woke up at 6AM and did 45 min of running intervals on my treadmill at home. I started drinking BCAA’s to help fuel my workout so I for sure don’t burn my muscles on an empty stomach. If you stay under 30 min you should be fine without BCAA’s, but you need to supplement immediately after with a liquid form so it absorbs quickly in your muscles. BCAA’s are Branched Chain Amino Acids and have a positive effect on fat loss. Here’s a read to fill you in http://www.muscleandstrength.com/expert-guides/bcaas

I start sipping on my BCAA’s a little before and during my workout. I have my 7AM meal or shake right after so that’s my post cardio fuel. My BCAA’s is a watermelon powder flavor that I add in a sports water bottle.

I eat a lot of meals… @ 7AM, 9:30AM, 12PM, 3PM, 6PM, and a 1/2 serving protein whey shake before bed to let my body rebuild during my ZZZZZ’s

Here’s is this mornings 9:30AM meal, high in protein low in sugar.

6 halved cherry tomoatoes

sml handful of  pearl onions

1 egg + 1/3 cup of egg whites

Seasoned Pepper from Lawrys®  this has zero sodium

Dash of Cayenne Pepper when plated

Hot Sauce drizzled on top

Salsa on too 🙂

Rosarita® Black Beans, low sodium (still had 23% daily sodium intake for 1/2 the can!) I ate about 1/4 can

Non-Fat Greek Yogurt on Beans

tsp salsa on beans too.

Enjoy!

I added the salt article just so that you know it’s ok to have some salt in a few items if you’re working out. I still barely add salt to anything and always buy salt free or low sodium… but even low sodium product, like the beans, can have a hefty amount.

I’ve started an Instagram @angiebryan12, feel free to follow me there too. I’ll be posting most of my meals to give everyone an idea of what awesome eating looks like.

Have a great Weekend! Plan ahead workouts and know what you are allowed to consume and what not so that you have a plan!
