A lot of people say to me that they don’t have time to have breakfast in the morning. I have never understood this as I have always been one of those people that make time for it. I also have to make time for it otherwise I will get hangry (as my friends would say) and that’s not the best way to start the day, especially if you are on the receiving end.
It’s always good to start your day off on a good foot with a bunch of healthy nutrients to get you on your way. This recipe is one of my favourites, I would eat this after a training session and have balanced it so that there is a good source of protein and carbohydrates, the carbs have been sourced from the grapefruit.
If you are trying to reduce the amount of starchy carbs you intake (such as bread, pasta and rice) fruit and veg are a way to make up these carbs in a different form, grapefruit is one of these. Not only is it low in calories and good for you, it is high in fibre and helps to feed off hunger and lower cholesterol. However, grapefruit can be a bit of a desired taste, I never really used to like it but when you mix it the tuna egg scramble it is not as noticeable, alternatively, if you need a little bit of extra help then drizzle a teaspoon of honey over it 😉
