Adding nutrition to your daily breakfast
All of my clients get diet suggestions in their personalised plans and one of my priorities for a lot of them is to add nutrition in to their regular breakfasts. There are a number of ways to do this and dietary needs will depend on the individual, but I thought I'd share a rough guide to the muesli mix I make for myself. This mix is high in fibre, antioxidants, sustainable energy, quality protein and omega-3. It is also convenient to work in to your diet as you can make up a batch at the start of the week and just grab from the fridge every morning!
Generally I use:
- 1 Part oats to 2 parts liquid (milk or water mixed with a fresh vegetable or fruit juice)
- Pumpkin seeds
- Chia Seeds
- Dried goji berries
- Coconut flakes
- Raw nuts (cashew, walnut)
- Linseed fibre
- Any other dried fruits you have around (extra fibre!)
Make up a big batch which will last for up to a week in the fridge in a sealed container. Serve with a dollop of natural yoghurt and fresh berries on top. Yum!
