    WEEK 1 MODS CHALLENGE
    BUILD A BETTER BREAKFAST

    jrscw37vp5sk.png
    Mornings can be hectic and crazy. But no matter how rushed your morning gets, there’s one habit you absolutely shouldn’t ditch from your morning routine: eating breakfast.

    Science shows that regular breakfast eaters tend to be leaner and dieters are more successful at losing weight—and keeping it off—when they eat breakfast.

    Another breakfast benefit: research has found that eating a breakfast that contains slower-burning carbohydrates instead of faster-burning breakfast foods helps maintain concentration and attention throughout the morning. So reach for whole-grain carbs that contain fiber like whole-wheat toast and oatmeal over refined carbs like white bread or sugary cereals.

    So what should you reach for to keep yourself going all morning long until lunch? Make sure your breakfast includes something from each of the food groups below for a balanced and energizing start to your day.

    —Lisa Valente, M.S., R.D.

    SO HERE IS HOW THIS GOING TO WORK ... YOU MUST INCORPORATE ONE THE 3 FOLLOWING INGREDIENTS
    WE WOULD LIKE YOU TO TAKE A PRE PREPPING AND POST FINISH PRODUCT PHOTO AND POST IT ON THE MODS CHALLENGE PAGE FOR ALL TO SEE.
    WE ALSO WOULD LIKE TO SHARE THE RECIPE THAT YOU USE SO WE CAN BUILD OUR RECIPE CATALOGS

    1)Protein....Adding protein to your breakfast helps keep you fuller for longer. Good protein sources at breakfast include Greek yogurt, eggs and cottage cheese.FOR RECIPE IDEAS TRY THIS LINK

    2) Whole Grains.....Eat whole grains to help you stay sharp and focused throughout the morning. Whole grains are slower-burning carbs, so you don't digest them as quickly. Plus you’ll get some essential vitamins and minerals. Try oatmeal, whole-wheat toast or a whole-wheat English muffin.

    3)Fruit or Vegetables.....Getting your produce at breakfast isn't as hard as it seems. Choosing fruit or veggies gives your breakfast more vitamins, minerals and feel-full fiber. Try adding fruits to yogurt, a smoothie or eating them on the side of whatever else you're having. Go for green in a green smoothie or add some vegetables to your eggs.

    I HOPE YOU ENJOY THIS CHALLENGE AS I HAVE TRIED TO CREATE SOMETHING NEW AND DIFFERENT FOR ALL OF YOU

    The Team vs Team Step Challenge has been discontinued, BUT the moderators set up a sector of the spreadsheet for an INTERNAL Step Tracking Challenge. We could run this along side our Green Challenge (pledging X weight shed for the month, as prompted by @mari_moulin ) .

    You can be in one, the other, or BOTH (stepping to help shed your pledged pounds)

    Participation in either or both is optional. At the moment there are 10 slots in the Internal Step Challenge Section, but we can probably expand it if there is more interest.

    February's Step Team was:

    BMcC9

    evangsimmons170
    Leni1us
    jugar
    mari_moulin
    sue_01
    Astrue
    micki48
    willrunformartinis
    Kittu125

    ===========

    I won't be participating this month. Who else would like to either be added, or drop out of step-counting for March?

    If this is popular, we can always keep it going from month to month, and individuals can step away from the challenge for March (perhaps because of travel or vacation plans, or injury recovery) and rejoin in a later month.

    Are we not doing the Step Challenge this month? Or are we just doing it as our group? I’d like to continue. It’s motivating me to move.
