If your like me and your on the go with a big family, you are always looking for simple healthy recipes right? Cereal tends to be a common household breakfast item, but a lot of times there not exactly providing the fuel you need for a busy day. Cereal can often leave you unsatisfied and hungry not long after eating.
Your body is looking for fuel to provide energy, not empty calories loaded with sugar, that can pick you up and let you down quickly. Always read labels! Go to the ingredient list to find out what you are eating.
If you are unsure about an ingredient, just google it and find out what it is! As a general rule, the more ingredients, the less healthy. I look for less ingredients and I want to recognize what is in the food I am feeding my family.
This simple healthy breakfast cereal provides an array of vitamins and healthy fats to nourish your body and give you some get up and go! The cool thing about this recipe is you can be as creative as you would like, and use what you have making it a time saver.
I start with raw nuts. Like I said before use what you have rather than spending a lot of money on specific things, you may find a new combination you like even better.
Today, I am using raw walnuts and raw almonds, because that is what I have. I was out of flaxseeds so I used chia seeds. Either of these options are good. You can read my article, by clicking on the highlighted blue to more about the health benefits of flaxseeds. If you are looking to add fiber, omega 3’s, antioxidants, and even some extra protein this is a small addition that provides a powerhouse of nutrition.
Next, I add whatever fruit I have. Today it is strawberries,blueberries, and half a banana. I then lightly dust with cinnamon, and last I add the non-dairy coconut almond milk. You can use whatever you have, but I prefer a non dairy option, like almond or coconut milk. I always choose the unsweetened so there are no added sugars.
