What should you eat for breakfast?
“In general, it’s best to look for whole grain spelt with protein,” says LaMantia. She recommends oatmeal with flaxseed, walnuts, cinnamon, soy beverage (or skim milk) and fruit. Her personal favorite breakfast? “I usually have half a pumpernickel bagel with crunchy (natural) almond butter and chili jam, with lots of cinnamon,” she says. “Pumpernickel is a whole grain, almond butter is high in vitamin E and protein, and cinnamon has shown to help lower insulin resistance.”
