Those who help shape Westchester know a lot about how to eat healthy, nutritious, energizing foods. I got them to spill their favorites for breakfast.
Tim Panetta of TP Total Performance, LLC who trains clients in Mount Kisco and in homes around Westchester said he eats anything that consists of simple carbs for breakfast.
"I do this because I workout first thing in the morning on an empty stomach and I know right after my workout my body desperately needs simple carbs to replenish all the glycogen (energy) in my muscles I used."
French toast topped with marshmallows and chocolate chips is a Panetta breakfast favorite.
Nutritionist and personal trainer Sloane Davis of Pancakes and Push-ups, said her two favorite breakfasts are an egg sandwich consisting of one whole egg, two egg whites, low fat cheese and two slices of toats and oat bran with a scoop of protein powder.
"These are my favorite breakfasts because they are compromised of great ratios of protein, carbs and fats," Davis said. They are quick and easy to make and most importantly, they fuel my workouts which take place 30 to 60 minutes afterwards."
Merv Tugendhaft of the Saw Mill Club in Mount Kisco eats a post-workout breakfast consisting of an omelet made with six eggs, baked in coconut, 40 ounces of Lactaid milk, six-ounce sweet potato and four ounces of broccoli.
Before breakfast he drinks 12 ounces of water with apple cider vinegar and cinnamon to control blood sugars, taken with vitamins and supplements.
Lisa Avellino with Susan Marlowe Fitness in Scarsdale starts her day with lemon water. When detoxing she adds cinnamon and ginger. Breakfast depends on the class she's teaching.
"If I am back-to-back as in two to four hours straight, fit fuel needs to be long lasting sustainable and high energy," Avellino said.
A protein based breakfast choice for her would be quinoa pumpkin pancakes with fresh fruit.
Her other breakfast choices may include a protein smoothie with kale, avocado, wheat grass and berries or an avocado with an egg and chives.
