Crashing and burning by 10.30am, even with a belly full of breakfast? You’re choosing the wrong foods!

According to world renowned integrative doctor Frank Lipman MD, the problem is that standard breakfast fare like a bowl of cereal or a bagel with cream cheese is nutritionally bankrupt.

His perfect brekkie includes healthy fats and protein, but skips sugar, wheat, gluten and dairy.


Eggs: Vegie omelette

Toast: Smoked wild salmon, sliced avocado or boiled eggs with nut butter on gluten-free toast (we love!)

Cereal: Slow cooked gluten-free oats, millet, quinoa, amaranth or brown rice porridge
