Welcome to my perfect breakfast! When I started my weight loss and healthy eating journey, this was my rock. This breakfast was the solid start to my day that helped me kick start my new healthier life. My perfect breakfast has treated me well during these past 9 months, during which I have gone from clinically overweight to normal weight. I have never been so happy to be normal!
So, I want to pay homage to you, my perfect breakfast buddy. For almost a year I ate you every day, I loved you, I cared for you and now all I can do is set you free! Anyone looking for a tasty and simple way to kick start healthy eating habits, will want to try you. I hope to see you when my dairy elimination trial ends, but only if it turns out that it wasn’t you causing my itchies:)
The Perfect Breakfast
1 Cup Yogurt (Plain, 2 ingredients – milk & enzymes, Full Fat, No Hormones, Organic)
2 Tbsp Ground Flax
2 Tbsp Chia Seeds
1 Medium Sized Apple (Organic Preferably)
1 oz Raw Walnuts
Dice your apple – if it is organic, keep the skin. If it’s conventionally grown, peel it first. Place your diced apple in a bowl and cover it with yogurt. Sprinkle the flax and chia seeds. Top with walnuts. I like to mix the ingredients together into one big porridge, but I have a weakness for porridgey food.
TIPS on Yogurt Breakfasts: Adding berries is always a good idea. One or two will do the trick and you can even use them direct from the freezer. Swapping out the apple for more seasonal fruits is a great idea, just keep in mind that the glycemic index and sugar content of fruits vary. And if you go for berries and no “fruit” it might be a little tart.
