My daily routine starts with a high-calorie coffee. Along with this, I have one or two glasses of ice cold water and a general all-purpose vitamin supplement. It is always important to try to give meaning to your meals. Have a reason for every ingredient.
Coffee - First thing in the morning, I want a quick pick me up. I use high-quality beans of coffee, made with a French press or my espresso machine. You can read online about the many benefits of coffee.
Eggs - In my opinion are up there in my top 5 perfect foods.
I use 1 or 2 farm eggs. This provides loads of good fats, proteins and vitamins.
Butter - For the calories and fats. One of the main goals of this meal is to satisfy my hunger for as long as possible. A good quality "clean" butter does this like nothing else. In fact only double fat, double cream Greek yoghurt comes close. The butter I use is made from 100% cream. It is clean of all other ingredients.
I use 2 - 3 tablespoons.
Coconut Oil - This is the first of 3 ingredients that I use just for the brain. The first step to health and wellness is to focus on the brain. Look after your brain and the rest will follow. Coconut oil has excellent benefits for the brain.
I use 1 - 2 tablespoons.
MCT (medium chain triglyceride oil) - This is optional and is also for the brain. It is like most of coconut oils content, just in a purer form. You can read more about the science involved online.
Creatine monohydrate - This is also optional. I only use this powder when I'm doing weight training. Unlike other supplements, it definitely improves your training performance. Again, do your research on it before using it and decide for yourself.
Put all the ingredients in a blender and blend. Pour into a mug and drink it while hot.
Vitamins – It is important to get your “water soluble” vitamins daily. I'm not convinced that supplements are 100% effective, but they do help.
The most important vitamins and minerals I take are:
Grape seed extract, B12, B6, Magnesium, Iodine and Vitamin C.
I also try to spend 10 to 20 minutes a day in the sun for vitamin D.
That is my standard daily breakfast. I will have something more to eat as soon as I am hungry again, usually after about 7 hours.
