Healthy Mum – Free Your Mind And….

‘Free your mind and your body will follow.’

I’ve read that phrase so many times in regards to being healthy and losing weight.

So, the other day, I freed my mind and ate a huge plate of vegetables as part of breakfast.

Too yummy!  Yes, even at 7am.  Got to love those leftovers.  Tiny bit of butter, plenty of salt.

Makes it so easy to have a veggie-filled day when you start early!


Do you eat veggies for breakfast?  Would you, could you with a fork?

Are you freeing your mind and hoping your body will follow?

  1. I am indeed. had break through with mind yesterday and my body softened and felt like a weight had been lifted off.
    Freeing ourselves from the sugary breakfast cereal/toast and marmalade habit very good idea. Veggies great, but don’t forget the protein for an excellent sugar balancing start!

    Keeping on blogging along!

    • Thanks Mairi, coming over to visit your blog in a minute. I’m all for porridge, remember when Dad made us eat it with salt and no sugar when we were wee… or did I make that up!? I still put a bit of butter and salt in, and hold the sugar.

      • We did eat it with salt, and Papa used to put added bran on his. I prefer maple syrup myself and some fresh fruit. We have been having porridge occasionally on this trip but now it’s too hot. I have made myself some lovely muesli, and that’s a good start too.
        Mines gluten free – oat, rice and buckwheat flakes, chopped up nuts, chopped dried apricots and a good sprinkling of mixed seeds (pumpkin, sunflower, sesame and linseed).

    Mmmmm. Can’t say I have ever even thought of having vegetables for breakfast. Obviously I have to start thinking outside the box!

    • Seana Smith says:

      I think I was working ont he ‘start as you mean to go on’ theory. Have definitely trained myself to love veggies. But it’s porridge this morning!

  3. I prefer cold pizza, but I could manage veggies too!

    • Seana Smith says:

      LOL, the pizza is totally gobbled up by my Giant Teenager, who’s a human food vacuum. Quite handy in fact.

  4. I love this idea! I’m not a fan of traditional ‘breakfast’ foods, but always feel somehow tied to the convention anyway. I’m going to try to do this more often :)

    • I love the idea of eating dinner at breakfast time, don’t do it much. My big boys do ask for pasta tho’ for brekkie on the days they have a sports carnival.

  5. I don’t know if I could eat leftover vegetables for breakfast; I love my cereal and yoghurt way too much. However, I used to go to a cafe in Christchurch called the Honey Pot cafe. They made the best Vegetable benedict and it was my favourite breakfast. Yummy veggies covered in hollandaise. yummo!

  6. I’d do it, though I haven’t. It might set my eating patterns off on a good path for the rest of the day.

    • I think that’s right, starting off on the right foot makes you feel good all day. I just read that a test was done where people ate half their daily calories for breakfast and that worked well for weight loss. I could definitely get into that!
