Getting your New Year...and your day....off to a great start with a strong breakfast.
This one is fresh, energising, has protein and good quality fats to give you a healthy blood sugar balance start to your day.
For the Fruit Salad, this recipe will give you 2-3 servings:
1 red apple
1 green apple
1 orange - mandarin, clementine
Full fat yoghurt of your choice. If using dairy, go for a good quality Greek style natural yoghurt. If using alternatives, ensure it is full fat and unflavoured.
Granola: you can use any good quality or make your own. See Buckwheat Granola recipe for a gluten free version.
Chop into bite-sized pieces. Add 1 portion of the mix to a breakfast bowl. (Squeeze some lemon juice on the rest of the fruit salad and store in a lidded container in the fridge.)
Add a couple of dessertspoons of yoghurt
Sprinkle granola on top.
By making up enough fruit salad for 2 days, you have a go-to snack when you have that desire for something sweet. To make fruit salad a healthier snack, add a handful of nuts or seeds to add healthy fats and protein. This helps maintain a steady blood sugar balance and a steady flow of energy.
A little bit of planning and prep goes a long way!
