Post Holiday Kick Start Breakfast
Spending time with family and friends over the holidays is the best - sleeping in late, watching movies, game nights and baking our favorite treats. I’ve definitely done my fair share of all these things over the past few days and now it’s time to get back on track with my fitness + nutrition so I look and feel my best. Personally, I don’t see why people put so much pressure on January 1 as the day to start setting goals. In my opinion, it’s unrealistic to choose one date to make major changes in your life (if it works for you, by all means do it!). Instead, I like to try and stay as balanced as possible throughout the year. When I’m home for the holidays I indulge in cookies and wine but also love my salads and Brussels sprouts.
That being said, if you’re feeling a bit sluggish and want to fuel your body with something filled with nutrients that is super delicious, check out this breakfast burrito recipe from my eBook. ACTIVATE. HUSTLE. GLOW. is a 12 Week Guide to Wellness that includes strength training, METCON, cardio, yoga, meditation, nutrition info and recipes. You can check it out here.

Place the roasted sweet potatoes in the pan for 3-5 minutes to warm. Remove and set aside.
