A healthy breakfast idea
As a little extra post this Sunday, I thought I would share a quick and easy breakfast idea with you all. Porridge is the best if you need to stay full for a long time, long uni days with no chance for a bite mean that I always try and get a big breakfast in the morning. However, I will be the first to admit that when the alarm goes off at 7am its tempting to just run out the door... this always backfires as I end up paying for it later when I'm starving hungry in the middle of a lecture.
This breakfast isn't only tasty, the fruit means you're already getting one of your five a day, not to mention how delicious bananas and blueberries taste!! The fruit flakes are a great snack, they're gluten free and free of nasty ingredients (it's mostly just pressed fruit), great for when you need a quick sweet fix and don't want to reach for a chocolate bar, and they taste damn good on porridge too!
Blueberries- These little wonder berries are high in anti-oxidants
Soy Milk- Proven to promote weight loss, strengthen blood vessel integrity and doesn't leave you with that sluggish feeling that dairy milk does
Banana- The potassium in bananas has been shown to lower blood pressure and the prevents the weakening of bones.
I hope you enjoyed this quick recipe, for anyone trying to live gluten free, gluten free porridge is great as it's a great alternative to sugary, wheat based cereals. You could also add lots of honey and cinnamon if
you like it a bit sweeter.
Thanks for reading,
