What’s for Breakfast? Yoga Teacher Erica Bornstein Gives Us a Peek

Popular yoga instructor Erica Bornstein shows us how she prepares for busy days.

We don’t need to tell you that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. In this series, we’re asking some of Boston’s top doctors, fitness pros, and dietitians for a sneak peek into their kitchens, so we can see what’s on their breakfast table.

Claim to fame: Bornstein is a choreographer and a popular yoga instructor who teaches at Yoga Works, Equinox, and Exhale.

What she ate: Two scrambled eggs with salsa and half an avocado, and a banana to go.

Why she chose it: Being a yoga teacher with a funky schedule, every day is different, so my breakfast is different as well,” Bornstein says. “On Fridays [when this was taken], I have a late start with a jam-packed afternoon and evening, so I like to take the morning to start slow and cook myself a hot breakfast while I have my coffee and do a little class prep for the day. It is one of the only days of the week where I actually sit and eat, rather than eating a quick banana on my commute to class or a client. A high protein breakfast usually holds me over for a while, so I try to eat eggs before a really busy day.”
