3 Breakfasts to Boost your Metabolism // Recipes!

Hey lovelies!
Metabolism is one of those things a lot of people still find confusing and I used to feel the exact same. Your metabolism in short, is how fast your body burns calories in the food you eat, and naturally some people have fast ones and some not so much. This basically explains why your super-skinny friend for example, can eat burgers and fries all day long but still not seem to put on a single pound. But while that can be insanely annoying to see if you're like me, there are still ways you can boost your metabolism and that's what I'm going to be showing you today.

Some foods have amazing metabolism-boosting properties and so since breakfast is the most important meal of the day right, I thought I'd create 3x healthy Breakfast meal-plans for you, complete with drinks and each with special ingredients in them that (although might seem a bit strange) are renowned for boosting your metabolism. If you're looking for healthy breakfast inspiration I hope you enjoy and a rough calorie count is also included for each meal to give you an idea of quantity!

  1. Those all look awesome!!

  2. I've been looking for healthy breakfasts to start trying when I move in my new flat and can go back into a good routine. I really can't wait to try the avocado toast and the cinnamon porridge. Great post.

  3. Wow these look amazing! I really want to try the porridge it looks delicious.

  4. I love this. I have the world's slowest metabolism and it's something I've always struggled with. I find less carby foods and adding chia to my breakfast really helps me x


  5. I'm shamefully lazy with my breakfasts... I must say, that avo toast looks very good!


  6. Thanks for sharing this! My metabolism is horrible and I'm always on the lookout for foods that'll help speed it up. Mhhm, grapefruit!


  7. Interesting combinations! Might have to try the fruit salad sometime!

  8. Great post! I love the combinations. I am not one for breakfasts, but I think this would be great for lunch also... :-)

  9. Yesss! It's so important to know about metabolism because it is the difference between being able to eat a 1000 cal burger or having to watch your diet! Though, I am jealous of people who can get away with eating the 1k cal burger ;). Oooh! I've heard cayenne peppers are really good for boosting your metabolism! I've seen smoothie places and drinks offering that! I got into green tea some time ago for the same reason - as long as you don't sweeten it!


Thank you, all your lovely comments make me smile!
