What The Experts Eat For Breakfast

June 16, 2015 2 min read

With all the nutrition information and science floating around, things can get confusing at meal time. Who has time to think that hard first thing in the morning? The easiest way to sort through the noise is to ask the experts directly, "what do you eat for breakfast?' Greatist.com went to the source, and here is what some pros have to say:

1. Mike Roussell, Ph.D., Nutrition Consultant and Author of 6 Pillars of Nutrition

My typical breakfast is a glass of plain kefir, scrambled eggs with spinach and feta cheese, and a side of prunes.

2. Tony Horton, Celebrity Fitness Trainer and Creator of P90X

I saute tomato, garlic, red onion, pepper, and balsamic vinegar in olive oil, and I serve this on toasted sprouted whole-grain bread topped with eggs over easy and avocado.

3. David Katz, M.D., M.P.H., Director of Yale University Prevention Research Center and Author of Disease Proof

Blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, banana, and any other fruit in season; nonfat, plain Greek yogurt; whole-grain cereal from Nature's Path; and a bit of cinnamon.

4. Brett Hoebel, Fitness Expert and Creator of 20 Minute Body

I make a chocolate peanut butter protein shake by combining chocolate protein powder, natural unsalted peanut butter, ice, unsweetened almond or coconut milk, cinnamon, and water.

5. Keri Gans, R.D.N., Author of The Small Change Diet

Oatmeal cooked with nonfat milk, topped with chunky natural almond butter and chia seeds. I take my vitamins with 1/4 cup calcium-fortified OJ mixed with around 3/4 cup seltzer. Then I top it all off with a mug of black coffee (half decaf/half caffeinated). I would do total decaf, but I compromise for my husband who needs his caffeine.

6. Cynthia Sass, R.D., New York Times Best-Selling Author and Sports Nutritionist

My usual go-to breakfast these days is an apple smoothie made of a chopped apple (skin on) blended with unsweetened coconut milk, coconut butter, unsweetened pea protein powder, a handful of fresh spinach, and fresh grated ginger. I also have a tall glass of water with lots of fresh-squeezed lemon added.

7. Heidi Kristoffer, Creator of CrossFlowX

Upon waking, I always drink room-temp water with lemon. For breakfast, I make a vegan parfait layered with coconut yogurt, papaya, and homemade granola of oats, millet, raw nuts, coconut, and goji berries. After, I will have warm tea and more water with lemon.

8. Valerie Goldstein-Berkowitz, R.D., Nutrition and Wellness Expert at Performance Health NYC and Author of The Stubborn Fat Fix

My aim is to always get the most "nutrient" bang for the "calorie" buck, and my favourite breakfast is one that is full of colour, nutrition, taste, and convenience. I typically start the day off with a cup of rooibos tea, two smoked salmon cigars (sliced Alaskan salmon rolled with cucumber, avocado, tomato, and onion), and a small bowl of cottage cheese with almonds. Those are some great sounding breakfasts! Yum. When you are fully on your game, what's your go to breakfast?

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.


We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.


All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
