1. Omelet and veggies Eggs of course contain plenty of protein, but also healthy cholesterol, the precursor to testosterone. They are also loaded with beneficial nutrients such as choline, vitamins D, E and K, selenium, riboflavin, calcium zinc and leucine.
Spinach or any other green vegetable (or even a bag of mixed frozen veggies) is a great and easy addition. The greens balance out the protein and provide a nutrient boost. If you really want to put on some muscle you can add organic bacon and/or sourdough bread or toast.
If you use organic grass fed beef or pork, this is best. The fats in these cuts are healthy fats (oleic and stearic) and also contain CLA, which provides a fat burning, muscle building boost. Feel free to add a little organic grass fed butter which also contains CLA.
Sourdough bread is fermented which adds to the nutrient profile. This also breaks down any phytic acid gluten making it very safe, absorbable, and nutritious.
2. Omelet and steel cut oats. A good standby that will provide fuel for a morning workout as well as plenty of protein, carbs and nutrients.
3. Steel cut oats and whey protein with blueberries.
Adding some berries to the oats boosts the nutrient profile while adding a ton of nutrients, polyphenols and vitamins. It also cools your oatmeal down faster! Whey protein adds needed protein and other nutrients to the mix. Whey has been shown to have many other healthy benefits to the body; it’s anti-inflammatory and provides support to the immune system, just to name a few.
4. Liquids- of course we can add a cup of coffee or green tea to wash it all down!
5. Other T boosting foods to add: Avocados: These are little packages of nutrition!
Avocados are loaded with essential fatty acids, folic acid and a host of vitamins and minerals. They are high in healthy fats, containing all kinds- saturated, poly and monounsaturated fats.
Nuts: A simple and fast addition to any healthy breakfast! Nuts provide a broad range of nutrients and fats, as well as tocopherols, which have been shown to boost prostate health and improve blood lipid profiles. Nuts are loaded with zinc and magnesium, which are essential to maximal testosterone production. They also have a high polyunsaturated fat content which works as an active anti-inflammatory, helping to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease risk and other associated illnesses.
Coconut oil: Providing a high source of saturated fats, this food offers cardio-protective benefits that can improve overall long – term health. The unique feature of coconut oil is its high amount of medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs). This type of fat is much easier and faster for the liver to break it down and utilize for
energy. Coconut oil has also been shown to activate key enzymes used in testosterone production, and also boost metabolism.
Pomegranates: These are loaded with antioxidants and vitamins, including B12, K and C, these are nutritional powerhouses. They also contain bioactive compounds such as anthocyanin and punicic acid which are potent antioxidants associated with decreased inflammation and improved blood glucose regulation. Pomegranates have been known to boost testosterone levels as well!
