Yes, exactly. How hard does this healthy breakfast recipe sound? Most of us rush out of the house every working day without very little food, but it doesn’t have to be the case! The simplestnutritious breakfast of yoghurt with healthy ‘things’ can be a really great start of any day of your week! Yoghurt is a forgotten super food that is rich in Calcium (good for teeth and bone health), protein (for almost everything especially a high metabolism and lean muscle, who wouldn’t want that?) and good bacteria for your immunity and healthy gut. It doesn’t require any cooking time all you have to do is open a pot of a good quality yoghurt (I normally go for Fage Total or Yeo Valley)and just add all your favourite things to it! Just skip topping it with Maltesers and crumbled Jaffa cakes – they won’t make a great impact on your health first thing in the morning!
Ingrediants: (makes 2 portions)
– 300gr 0% yoghurt
– Handful of blueberries
– Handful of raspberries
– ½ banana
– Small handful of goji berries
– 1 passion fruit
– 2 tea spoons of bee pollen
– 5 hazelnuts
1. In a pretty bowl or a glass (it’s important to eat out of pretty crockery – the way we perceive our food is also dictated by the homeware we use!) put your yoghurt.
2. Add your berries.
3. Chop ½ banana, add to the bowl and some hazelnuts.
4. Cup open passion fruit in half and with a tea spoon carefully scoop out the yellow juicy seeds out of the crinkly skins and add to the bowl.
5. Add goji berries, and finally, carefully add bee pollen to the centre of the bowl.
Of course, the choice of yoghurt is yours. You can substitute it with sheep’s yoghurt if cow’s dairy is off the charts. Alternatively, if you are vegan then you can swap it for a delicious soya yoghurt (Alpro plain yoghurt is absolutely amazing) or even coconut yoghurt (although I wouldn’t advise eating it a main ingredient as its extremely high in fat – skip adding nuts to the dish then). Berries can be fruits and other way around, if you are a strict paleo. If you are on a ketogenic diet plan then take out fruits and berries altogether and crank up the nuts and bee pollen. For my gym bunnies I suggest mixing in a scoop of high quality protein powder and a table spoon of steel cut oats to make the dish go further. For my health fanatics or people wanting to boost their immunity I suggest adding a small scoop of spirulina and sprinkle of chia seeds to up their Omega 3 levels.
Wishing you a great health and Bon Appetite.
