Avocado Turkey Egg Breakfast Sandwich

Avocado Turkey Egg Breakfast Sandwich

Why is breakfast so important? Well here’s the reason: while we are asleep we’re not eating, which means our bodies are in a 6 to 12-hour fasted state. Getting in great shape require us to support fat metabolism while preventing muscle wasting, as the body will begin destroying muscle (also called catabolism) for energy / food if fasting continues for extended periods of time. Remember the more muscle we have the higher our metabolism will be, so we definitely do not want to give the body an opportunity to break down muscle. Ending your fasted state with a quality breakfast after a good night’s sleep can prevent catabolism and help you reach your goals quicker.  

Quality Breakfast Tips

I suggest having a complex carb, but you can also add a low sugar fruit like berries. Adding an essential or healthy fat is a good idea as well. You’ll also need a fast-digesting protein like eggs or protein powder. Adding a fibrous low-calorie veggie is a great idea too. The “Avocado Turkey Egg Breakfast Sandwich” is one of my favorites because it’s a perfect combination of all the components of a power-packing breakfast for an active metabolism. I also provided a nutritional analysis so that you can adjust to meet your caloric needs, weight loss and fitness goals. Enjoy!
