I don’t really know how, but having a couple of veggie egg muffins in the morning instead of yogurt and a granola bar has given me more energy throughout my day. I have the yogurt in place of my usual lunch snack, and that seems to be helping, too. I get all the way to dinner without being hungry or tired, and I’m eating fewer calories overall.
Since such a small change has been so helpful in my day-to-day life, I’m now working on phasing out processed foods that contain vegetable oils from my dinner. Lunch is going to be the most difficult for me to change, so dinner is the better option to work on next.
