Breakfast is THE MOST important meal of the day, but too often we rush or skip it. I like to start my day with a cup of hot water with the juice of half a lemon. This is followed by a glass of my gorgeous green smoothie. But then I like to sit down, take my time and enjoy a yummy breakfast. I like to mix it up and so don't always have the same thing. I also like to have it in courses. So I might start with half of a grapefruit, or 1/2 banana or 1/2 an apple, and follow this with a bowl of 'nutty natural yogurt', or a slice of brown bread and a boiled egg.
This is one of my favourite breakfasts. Play around with this recipe to get the consistency you like. The natural yogurt MUST be of good quality, I recommend you try getting one locally made and not mass produced as it will have all the good bacteria your gut needs!
Try making natural yogurt part of your everyday diet- it's so incredibly good for you! The key is to taste as you add the lemon juice- it's got to be just the right amount for your taste buds and that's a very personal thing.
- 1/2 cup of natural yogurt
- 1 table spoon of porridge oats
- A handful of chopped pecan nuts
- A teaspoon of honey
- Optional- A squeeze of lemon juice to taste
Mix all the ingredients together and enjoy- find the balance of flavours and consistency that you like.
