7 breakfasts for 7 days - Health food

Dear readers,

as you may have noticed, I have not been posting for a while. This was due to some personal circumstances, but I promise, I will be a good girl and keep you following me by posting more frequently, always hoping to be able to supply you with some helpful hints, recipes and ideas!

First of all, I would like to introduce a "sequel". I know how many of you keep on asking themselves "What should I have for breakfast" or keep eating the same things over and over.

Let me remind you that breakfast and lunch are the most important meals you will have throughout your busy day! They should be easy to prepare, but at the same time provide you most of those essential nutrients you need.

If you would like to read about essential nutrients, have a look at this nice, clear overview: http://www.editorsweb.org/nutrition/essential-nutrients.htm

The first breakfast in my "7 breakfasts for 7 days" sequel is 



This one offers optimum nutrition and right away gives you your 5 fruits a day! It is very easy to prepare and this one you could actually have everyday - but isn't that just boring??

Here's what you need:
(2 portions)

1. Blend 250g (90oz) low-fat, organic yogurt with a variety of fruit in a processor. Choose from a wide variety in order to obtain lots of different vitamins (pears, apples, apricots, peaches, plums, figs, dried fruit, bananas, mangoes, papaya, frozen berries...). Be careful not to blend the fruit to death!

2. Separately, grind 4-6 level tablespoons of 4 mixed seeds (if you do not have a fine coffee grinder, don't worry! Just remember to chew much more carefully!): flax, sesame, pumpkin and sunflower. This you can prepare once a week and store in the fridge.

3. Mix fruit, yogurt and seeds together and ideally add 2-3 tablespoons cold-pressed mixed seed oil. Enjoy right away in order to avoid oxidation.
