Breakfast: – This meal should be consisted of a 3 egg omelet with spinach, cheese, and sausage.
Eggs are abundant in nutrients and they’re an extremely healthy food.
Eggs were thought to be unhealthy, but it’s not like that. The cholesterol present in food doesn’t increase the cholesterol found in your blood. You can eat eggs freely. They are a rich source of protein and lutein and you’ll be full for hours!
We suggest you to prepare a healthy omelet using some crumbled breakfast sausage, cheddar cheese, and shredded spinach! This meal consists of 30 grams of healthy protein!
Spinach is full of minerals including some of the most important ones like magnesium and potassium.
Make sure you cook the omelet with some sea salt as it is much healthier. It contains a great amount of electrolytes which are extremely important in order to maintain your energy and fight the stubborn headaches!

Use the sauce over 4-6 oz portions of fish. Bake the fish at 450F for 5 minutes per 1/2″ thickness of fish.
Prepare the asparagus separately. Put it in a bowl with some salt,olive oil, and pepper. Then, spread it out evenly on a cookie sheet. Roast it in the oven at 450 F for 20 minutes.
