This healthy breakfast recipe is a winner all-around. It’s healthy, nutritious, and incredibly easy to prepare. And thanks to fresh fruit and all-natural sweeteners like raw honey or natural maple syrup, it’s delicious.
When looking for quick breakfast options, we’re constantly presented with sugar-laden options. The less added sugar the better. Look for less than five to 10 grams per serving when possible. Also, remember that not all sugar is actually called “sugar” on nutrition labels—you also have to look for ingredients like brown rice syrup, tapioca syrup, or corn syrup – anything with “syrup” in the name, or “ose” at the end ie dextrose, maltose, sucrose.
The first ingredient on the label of any muesli or granola you buy should be a whole grain, like oats.
Pro Tip: on a product label, the ingredients are listed in order of predominance, with the ingredients used in the greatest amount first, followed in descending order by those in smaller amounts.
We suggest a mindful approach to building your meals. Consider thinking of your plate or bowl as a whole. Look to eat “Super Plates” that have ideal nutrient ratios. For breakfast, try a ratio of: 1/3 whole grain (complex carbohydrate), 1/3 fruit or vegetable, and 1/3 plant or animal protein. This recipe covers that ratio perfectly.
