Breakfast is the most important meal of the day so it should be the best. I’m going to tell you what I think are the best breakfasts to have to keep you healthy.
First of all, sugary and chocolatey cereals are not good for you at all! So chuck them out of your cupboards.
Breakfast (and all other meals) are at its best when you use raw foods, I don’t mean raw as in things like uncooked meat, no, I mean nothing that has been processed and wrapped up like a sweet. So leave and pop tarts are out of the question! It has to be made out of fresh ingredients.
Egg and toast
It doesn’t matter too much on how you cook your Eggs, boiled, poached, scrambled are probably the best ways to cook your eggs, frying them is OK if you don’t use too much oil. If you do like putting oil in, then I suggest rapeseed oil with red palm fruit as that is one of the healthiest oil you can get and can cope with high heat.
I would suggest the bread is to be wholemeal as that is way better than white bread and personally I don’t feel as bloated with it as I do with white bread. I use olive spread instead of butter because I try to stay away from too much dairy and I also find it is healthier.
Yogurt and Granola
Using natural yogurt is the healthiest but not that great in taste, I occasionally have natural yogurt just because it’s good for me but what I prefer is bio yogurt as that comes in a variety of flavours and tastes better.
With the granola you have to be careful if you buy it from stores as a lot of granolas have a lot of extras and sugars you don’t need so check the ingredients before you go to the checkout. I buy a brand called Udis granola as the ingredients only include Certified Gluten Free Oats (65%), Honey (23.8%), Rapeseed Oil. There is also a cranberry walnut flavour and a almond vanilla flavour and they are all natural. You can normally find these in your supermarkets for example: Asda, Tescos, Sainsburys. Down the free from section.
I put a sprinkle of dried goji berries and ground flaxseeds on my granola as well because it gives you fiber, antioxidants and has a lot of goodness in it, then I top it off but cutting up some fresh fruit and sprinkling it on top.
I find porridge is very good for you and helps keep you warm when it’s cold outside. I do mine with almond milk as that is healthier than cows milk and also helps cut down on how much dairy I eat and once it’s heated up I put some honey in there also with some slices of fresh banana.
Grapefruit is a good light breakfast. Cut it in half cut apart the juicy bits from the skin and sprinkle it with a bit of sweetener and it’s ready to eat. I normally only eat half a grapefruit but eating all of it is good too.
