Summer breakfast

I haven’t been posting too many recipes and food tips, but as a good continuation from last one, here’s another breakfast favourite.

  • Oats
  • Natural Yoghurt
  • Hot Water
  • Cinnamon
  • Nectarine

I add oats, natural yoghurt and cinnamon. You cold of course make a normal porridge first and then add the yoghurt, cinnamon and fruit. But I like to mix it up rather quickly. So I just add hot water to my mixture, makes it less ‘sticky’ and not so warm so I can eat it asap. I then add my nectarine, those really ripe sweet ones are so so tasty. Sometimes I add grapes or kiwi as well.

Add whatever summer-fruits you like, I promise you it will be very tasty. Also, I add quite a bit of cinnamon to my bowl, I like it that way. The cinnamon adds to the sweetness, and with the ripe fruit there’s no sugar or any other sweeteners needed.

If you do want to add a lite something, I would recommend Stevia- It’s all natural, has no calories and does not alter your blood sugar levels. So this is perfect for diabetics. If you don’t have that then honey or agave syrup would do the trick. Their GI (Glycemic Index) are much lower than sugar and will not spike your blood sugar the same way- REFINED SUGAR IS NOT ALLOWED.

Oats & Coffee

So I thought my first proper post should be in the Food & Recipe section. That’s very convenient as I’ve just had my breakkie, and will now tell you all about it.

It it so important, for all sorts of reasons. It gets your body and metabolism going, It will help you stay focused for school and work throughout the day. Also it gives me that kick to eat healthy the rest of the day, if you start the day good it’s so much easier to keep it up. So never skip Breakfast (BF), even if you only have a fruit, some nuts or a smoothie on the go.

Well, you will need some refill, which lead me to one of my tips, if you can call it that. I always have a little healthy snack, mostly berry & fruity smoothies, between BF and lunch. Some days though I just don’t feel like a big breakfast, so I would just switch over. I will have a smoothie/snack for  BF, and at snacktime I would eat my BF ( I will eventually get to what this normally contains) . Another bonus with this, for me at least, is: If I eat a big BF I become Very Hungry Very Quickly and feel I need to eat a rather short time after. So if I just had a smoothie for BF, or anything else small, when snacktime comes, and I feel I could eat a horse, I have a full BF to eat. This really fills me up and makes me all nice and happy all the way to lunch.

So, what I do have for BF , WOW, finally you must think. I do vary alot, but what I always come back to is porridge made on oats and blueberries. In this lovely porridge I add cinnamon and nutmeg, and then some natural yoghurt. Tip from Tone It Up, which is something I will get back to you on.  The recipe was to have the yoghurt on the side, but I find that to be quite messy eating from two bowls, so I scooped it in with the oats , mixed it, and it turned ut absolutely lovely, and purple 🙂

  • 1/4 cup oats
  • 1/4 cup blueberries
  • Water
  • Some nutmeg 
  • Some more cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup natural yoghurt

So there you have it, my first meal of the day, healthy and nutritious. I must add that this will always be with a coffee on the side.
