I was a little concerned about the sugar content of this breakfast. Even though it's fruit, it can still wreak havoc with insulin levels. I didn't want to spike and crash. I was also afraid that I would feel stuffed or bloated after eating this much fruit. (The amount was self-imposed, as the experiment just said, "Fruit".)
I sat down at 7:45 and spent 20 minutes eating (and 'chair dancing' to my 80s playlist today). I was full but not stuffed, and amazingly I didn't feel bloated from all that fruit. I felt energetic and ready to go! I think there was also a happy mental component to starting the day with another healthy breakfast!
I noticed the time at 10:00, more than 2 hours later. I was not hungry and had no cravings. I was still energetic and alert and felt great. Although I did grab a handful of almonds, just because it was time.
Fruit for breakfast = great!
What way do you like to incorporate fruit into your morning routine?
Note: Saturday I'll be busy from sun up to sun down, so while I will continue with the experiment there will be no report until Sunday or Monday.
