#1 Fuel Your Day with a Protein-Rich Breakfast
We get it — mornings are busy. It can be easy to fly out the door with a piece of fruit or cup of coffee and consider it breakfast. Or, maybe you skip your morning meal altogether. But, starting your morning with a protein-rich breakfast is a healthy habit you’ll want to get behind! A breakfast rich in protein has been shown to boost metabolism, satiety, and muscle mass, while decreasing the urge to snack! Maybe breakfast is the most important meal of the day, after all.
To avoid missing your morning meal, a little prep work goes a long way. Here are some meal prep ideas to make mornings that much easier:
- Make a chia seed pudding
- Pre-prep a protein smoothie by portioning out your ingredients in a freezer-safe bag
- Prep a batch of overnight oats
For some healthy breakfast inspiration, consider trying this delicious FitOn PRO Sweet Berry Omelet. It’s rich in protein and easy to make.
Sweet Berry Omelette

Step #1: Whisk the egg whites, flaxseeds, stevia, a handful of berries, 1 tbsp yogurt, and desiccated coconut in a bowl.
Step #2: Place 1 tsp of coconut oil in a pan over medium heat.

#2 Drink a Glass of Water Immediately Upon Waking
Did you know your body wakes up in a mild state of dehydration after a long night of sleep? Starting your morning with a hydrating glass of water not only replenishes your fluid stores but it also helps to flush out toxins, promote healthy lymphatic flow, kickstart your metabolism, boost your energy, and even support a glowing complexion.
With benefits like these, be sure to mix up your daily routine with a tall glass of water and soak up this healthy habit!
