Breakfast for Busy Women – Why It’s Important Not to Skip

Does this sound familiar?

The alarm goes off(way too early for your liking) and you are rushing around preparing for a busy day ahead, whether you have children to get ready for school, or papers to read for a morning meeting, by the time you’ve watched the news, brushed your teeth and sorted your make-up, you are already exhausted. Is this you?

It’s no wonder so many busy women end up skipping breakfast and just grabbing an expensive coffee and muffin to drink in the car on the way to work. But there are many reasons why this habit is bad for our health. Let's go over some of them.

Do you keep track of what you’re eating and drinking?

If the answer is “hardly ever” or “never”, you might want to change that! It’s much easier than you think to underestimate how much you’re actually eating and to think that you’re eating healthier than you really are.

When you start keeping track and logging your food and drink consumption (among other things like sleep and stress), you might be surprised at what you find and be able to spot patterns linked to your wellbeing.

Food journaling also keeps you accountable to yourself for meeting your health goals. Knowing that you’re going to have to admit to yourself exactly what you ate can be a game changer when it comes to your eating habits!

What Your Food Cravings Are Really Telling You!

Do you ever find yourself having incredibly strong cravings for a certain type of food? I'm sure you do, I think we ALL do. Well, according to scientific research, it could be your body’s way of telling you that you’re lacking in a specific nutrient.

Genuine hunger is triggered by the stomach and if you’re hungry enough, it’s likely you’d eat pretty much anything.

Cravings though, tend to be a lot more specific and more focused on a certain type of food, which gives a lot away in terms of what your body truly needs or might be lacking. You may not realize it, but certain cravings can tell you exactly what your body is crying out for.

Here are some common food cravings that I know myself and my clients have,  and what they suggest your body isn’t getting enough of so that next time you reach for that chocolate bar or salty food, you are well informed to make the right food choice for your body!

Ready? We'll start with one of the most popular. 

What Is A Compass Rose?

What Is A Compass Rose?

When I started my Nutrition business, I wanted to really be here for you, to support you, and during a long walk with a friend one day about 4 years ago now, we brainstormed what that means to me, what the vision of my business is, and how I can serve you best.

Do you come up with your best ideas on a long walk too? For me, it's either during a walk or while I am laying in bed trying to fall asleep...

Anyway, that is where Compass Rose Nutrition & Wellness came from. During this long walk with a good friend. Once we both chatted about it, we loved it more and more and more!

You might be still asking though- what the heck is Compass Rose? So I made you a short video so I can explain it and show it to you!
