Fat Burning Breakfast Pesto Hash

This low-carb meal will help keep your insulin in check, cortisol and triglyceride levels down, your hormones from fluctuating, and continue your fat burning from the night before. Throughout the night your body has been fasting. In this fast you are in a ketogenic state, and your body is all ready metabolizing the fat stores for energy. When you add in carbs, this stops the process from occurring. Remember protein in the morning helps burn fat! Protein is the most satiating macronutrient food according to the sensors in your stomach followed by fat. This meal will give you lasting energy to get you through your morning, without the added cravings. Sugar cravings means you are not satisfied and haven’t had enough protein!
