Resting heart rate at bed time: 60 pulses a min. Resting heart rate in the morning: 66 pulses a min. Lol... (I think it was because I woke up thinking that I was running late...)

Had my morning Isotonix Supplement cocktail (with Opc3 Antioxedent/calcuim/vitamin b).
Then breakfast was two egg whites with a small sweet potato and water. Lunch should be a bit of fresh ground beef with vegetables and an avocado. And at some point... I should be getting my 8 mile run in. So after that, I am having my protein shake with the 'Complete Greens' supplement and oatmeal. If I eat a 'dinner' with the family it will be very light! Maybe a lean steak with some plain salad (or with lots of lime)...

Here are a couple of more recipes... I'm wrapping this recipe chain up because there are so many other interesting articles to share!! So enjoy these last 3 breakfast ideas for a healthier, lighter YOU! =)
