Fast Nutritious Breakfast
Good morning and the top of the day to you!
Nowadays I am mindful about what I eat, aiming for low-sugar and restricting other refined carbs and snacks. So my diet is composed of around 90% good nutrition with an occasional nice but naughty treat. Add to this a revived gym membership and I’m feeling several years younger than my advanced age and full of beans (forgive the pun). Here's today's breakfast of blueberries, cantaloupe melon, and Yeo Valley natural yoghurt. I added a few chopped mixed nuts, a sprinkling of Inulin powder and a small amount of a ready-prepared mixture of milled linseed with Goji berries, sunflower and pumpkin seeds (which was super-cheap in Aldi). Protein, healthy fats,fibre and vitamins in a thrown together bowl to keep me on the move until lunchtime.
Inulin is prebiotic, helping to improve gut health.
