Nutrition is not a one size fits all — particular diets may only work for particular bodies. Shelly Najjar is a registered dietitian and nutritionist of Confident Nutrition who focuses on intuitive eating, which promotes a positive attitude towards food and body image. She demonstrates three breakfast ideas that can be catered to what we need individually:
The "I Have No Time To Eat"
- Breakfast oatmeal with toppings like fruits and/or granola
The "Not Hungry In The Morning"
- Fruit smoothie
- Breakfast drink
- Bread or toast
The "I Don't Like Breakfast Foods"
- Eat leftovers
When viewing nutrition as the goal of nourishing our body, it increases our capacity to do other things:
- Work and life tasks
- Connecting with others
- More stable blood sugars
- More feelings of self-control around food
- Easier decision making
- More stable emotions
- Other acts of self-care: easier to monitor medical conditions and take health actions when we’re nourishing ourselves
