Ever try eating meat and nuts for breakfast?  The first thing you eat in the morning impacts how you feel all day long because the nutrients produce a variety of effects such as:

Neurotransmitter production for optimal brain function and energy production.
Hormone modulation to keep you energized but calm.
Blood sugar regulation so you feel satisfied and prevent food cravings.
Protein synthesis and tissue repair for best results in the gym.

The way to make this work is to switch up the type of meat you eat often so it doesn’t become too repetitive.  Some of the best and easiest choices are bison, venison, lean turkey burgers, lean ground beef patties, chicken breasts, and cold water fish.  These are also the  best sources of protein and nutrients.

Two centuries ago all meat was range fed and slaughtered between 4 and 5 years of age, whereas today 99 percent of beef is grain-fed and slaughtered at 14 months leading to a much greater total fat content and a skewed omega-6 to omega-3 ratio.  That being said choose lean, organic cuts whenever possible.

Eat a variety of nuts but don’t overdue it on the nuts.  A handful is plenty as they are very energy dense.  

If you’re looking for a way to change up the eggs and bacon going the meat and nuts for breakfast may be for you.  For more information about the results from the study and the article the above information is referenced from, click here.
