5 Turkey Day Breakfasts

5 Turkey Day Breakfasts get your day started off right and cuts down your want to overindulge during the big turkey day meal.

My rule this year for the holiday meals is to eat breakfast beforehand. I can’t say that I’ve done it in the past. Most of the time I wouldn’t eat all day or just have a small snack because I was “saving my calories.” We all know how this story ends: overeating (like way overeating), followed by guilt, shame, negative self-talk, and compensating behavior. The day after a big holiday, I would go to the gym for a long workout and “perfect” eating.

This past 18 months or so I’ve been working to ditch the perfection, learn to love my body, and say nice things to myself daily. In order to keep that going, I’ve been attempting to avoid situations that trigger me. The holidays are one of them. Breakfast is going to save me.

Here are 5 Turkey Day Breakfasts to start your day!
