I have to start this post by saying that this breakfast was inspired after seeing Niomi's video suggesting some lovely healthy breakfast ideas. After coming back from Florida, where I indulged in Lucky Charms, waffles and pancakes, I was keen to start making some healthy breakfasts to start the day.
This is what goes into my bowl of goodness - I found the Lizi's granola in Sainsbo's and chose it because there was no sugar in the ingredients (this is what you have to be careful of when buying granola as so many have it). After posting about it on my Instagram there were a few comments saying how much they love Lizi's so I think I need to look into her products a bit more! I also have Natural Yoghurt, Honey, Flaxseed, Chia Seeds and some berries. The Chia Seeds and Flaxseed were purchased from Holland & Barrett and I was really impressed with their service as it was super speedy.
Before you start making the breakfast, you need to prepare the Chia Seeds. This is really easy- I just put 1 teaspoon in a mug or glass, and add three tablespoons of water and then just leave it for a few minutes to puff up- they will look like a gelly texture when they're ready. Chia Seeds have so many health benefits including being rich in Omega-3, fibre and they are also high in antioxidants.
I usually start off by chopping my strawberries and washing the rest of the fruit.
In my bowl I then put a few tablespoons of natural yoghurt in, and then add the Chia Seeds, Flaxseed and honey before mixing it all together. Flaxseed is another great ingredient to add as it also includes those Omega-3 essential fatty acids and fibre- you probably don't need both the Chia and Flaxseed in there but hey ho. Honey isn't the best thing to include as it's got lots of sugar but I only include one teaspoon to satisfy my sweet tooth! The honey I'm using at the moment is actually made by Chris' friend so it's really pure and tastes amazing.
Next I simply add some granola, my fruit and I'm done! This is such a delicious breakfast and I'm really enjoying having it every day.
