But I’ve recently been tracking my macronutrient breakdown (carbs, fats & proteins) and caloric intake, because I’ve got some specific goals for fat loss and building muscle, along with a pretty hardcore gym routine for 12 weeks.
In the 5 weeks I’ve been doing it, having days where I enter my macronutrients and calories has help me to measure and see results.
So although I’ve always dismissed the idea of adding calories and nutrients in my recipes, and I still believe focussing on eating healthy and moving your body is the way to overall general health, I also now see the value of measuring if you have specific goals.
Now, I might be imagining it, but it seems like it’s the people that are happy with where they’re at (don’t need or want to gain or lose weight) that seem to think tracking calories are a bad idea. That’s a sweeping statement, but I have to say, that was me.
With that in mind, I wanted to see how one of my favourite breakfasts breaks down. Plus, I wanted to get the recipe up for you, because it just flat out tastes great and keeps me full for several hours.
So here’s the recipe with a breakdown of the nutrients and calories. I’ve done a version with and without honey, if you like something sweeter.
Is this useful for you?
I’d love it if you’d leave me a comment under the recipe to let me know if you’d like me to continue to including nutrient and calorie breakdown.
