Can be tough to get started. I for one love Monday’s I shifted my mindset to instead of dread I look forward to it. It’s a new beginning of a week, a new way to crush those goals we might have made a while ago (last week) and as sometimes life happens we never get to accomplish them right?
So I use Monday’s as my Fresh start. So this morning I wanted to share with you a recipe to start not only your mindset but your belly as well. So you will have a full healthy stomach to start your day. Now I’m not a huge fan of Eggs Benedict. But my family love them, I mean really love them.
SO when I saw this recipe on the Beachbody blog I had to share with you! I think this is a definite keeper to use if your trying to eat healthy and this is actually from a New program 2B Mindset that is having amazing results and your never hungry. Give this a try and let me know what you think. IF your curious or are wanting more info about the program please feel free to message me or drop me your email! I would love to share with you and get you feeling great without sacrificing taste or food.
