Tuna egg scramble is a great way to kick start your day!  This recipe is one of my favourites, I would eat this after a training session and the macronutrients are balanced so that it has the perfect source of protein and carbohydrates and fat.

If you are trying to reduce the amount of starchy carbs you intake per day (such as bread, pasta and rice) fruit and vegetables are a way to make up these carbs in a different form and 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.  However, if you do feel you need a little bit of extra help then drizzle a teaspoon of honey over it ?
