Sometimes just a simple breakfast to satisfy a sweet craving is needed in the morning. Iprefer not to have cereal as it’s just a high carbohydrate meal that will leave you feeling hungry again in no time at all. But, a good low sugar granola with Greek yogurt (full fat) and berries will not only satisfy you, it will provide you with everything you need to start your day.
Protein, fibre and fat are important for breakfast as evidence has shown this combination will leave you feeling fuller for longer and stabilise blood sugar levels which means your body will use fat storage for energy.
I use frozen berries because they are cheaper and they last longer, just take what you need.
- Heat a frying pan on a low heat and add your berries, they only need 1 or 2 minutes to warm them through
- Greek yogurt
- Low sugar granola (Lizie’s low sugar granola)
- Add those delicious warm berries to the granola and yogurt
Clean & Lean Protein Pancakes
I love a good breakfast and these pancakes hit the spot. I use a whole food product called PURITION which is 100% natural and can be used as a shake, added to yogurt or used as an ingredient like I have here. Take a look at their website www.purition.co.uk.
2 scoops of Purition
1 whole egg
1 egg white
2 tsp of oats
splash of almond milk
frozen raspberries, Greek yogurt and a little maple syrup to finish
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl and pour half into a small frying pan (recipe will make two pancakes). When pancakes are done turn out on to a plate turn off heat and use residual heat to warm raspberries through, add to Greek yogurt and dollop on top of your delicious pancakes…yum.
