I have had a lot of questions regarding what the best fat burning breakfast is. Traditionally breakfast would be cereal, fruit, toast and some juice. Hmm, that looks like at least three servings of processed carbs if you have gone for a small portions but more than likely more. A great way to get your blood sugar sky high first thing and crash by morning tea. There is very little quality protein in this breakfast and almost as little on the good fats side of things.
A very simple way to change this breakfast would be to substitute the cereal for natural yogurt, the toast for some walnuts or almonds, and the juice for some green tea. You could also go for eggs, tomato, onion and mushrooms which would tick off all the boxes in terms of protein, fat and carbs. The options are really endless.
The biggest challenge is changing your mindset out of what we are told is correct from all the commercials. If you were to never eat another boxed cereal again it would be one of the best things you could do for your health and body. In fact not eating breakfast at all isn’t as bad as people would have you believe (have a look here)
Recently Choice magazine looked at breakfast cereals and there was only two they recommended, Weet Bix and Vita Brits. Not exactly what I would call tasty and appetising. Remember food has to taste good, even healthy food. There is no reason why it shoudn’t. And there is no reason why you should have to resort to eating pulverised wheat grains that are packed into little bricks.
If you are short of time in the morning, you can prepare the following in about 2 minutes. A good strategy is to prepare it the night before and pop it in the fridge ready for the morning. Then you have no excuses.
Place the following in a food processor/blender and blend until all ingredients are…blended!
- 2/3 Cup Low Fat Cottage Cheese
- 3/4 Cup Strawberries
- 8 Walnuts
- 1 Scoop Vanilla Protein Powder
This recipe is tasty, healthy, quick and easy.
