Power Breakfasts
Breakfast may just be the most important meal of the day, so don’t miss it—no matter how busy you are. These recipes are quick, easy and nutritious:

• Cut up slices of fruit (berries, peaches, or pineapple, for example) with yogurt made from whole, organic milk or organic cottage cheese.
• Make a smoothie: Mix eight ounces of plain whole milk, yogurt or kefir with 1 Tablespoon honey, a half-cup of fresh or frozen fruit, 1 teaspoon flaxseed oil, and 1 serving of protein powder.
• If you’re a cereal eater, then you can try a healthy brand like Ezekiel 4:9. Jordan recommends cereal over yogurt or kefir.
• Scramble a couple of omega-3 or organic eggs. Add some raw cheddar or jack cheese--or even some organic salsa--to the eggs.

 

Healthy Lunches
You have lots of healthy, brown-bag options for lunch including:

• An organic, raw peanut butter or almond butter and raw honey sandwich on organic, sprouted bread. Add an organic apple or a banana as well as some homemade healthy trail mix with organic nuts and seeds.
• For an insulated lunch carrier that keeps foods cold, throw in a nitrate/nitrite free, organic deli meat sandwich topped with organic cheese or a turkey and goat cheese wrap. Add organic cheese sticks, flaxseed crackers, a high-energy food bar, organic vegetables and fruits as well as organic, whole fat yogurt.
• An organic spring mix or spinach salad, topped with sliced, fresh avocado, organic cheese, an organic, hard-boiled egg and your choice of healthy dressing.
• Pure, non-chlorinated water, natural sparkling water with no carbonation, honey-sweetened herbal teas, raw vegetable or fruit juices, or coconut water are great beverages.

 

Satisfying Snacks
Here’s a short list of some foods to keep on hand for snacking: 
 
• Organic vegetables and fruits of any kind
• High energy food bars
• Packaged organic popcorn
• Organic peanut butter (on fruit slices or sprouted bread)
