3 Nourishing Breakfast Ideas, from a Registered Associate Nutritionist
Monday, January 27, 2020
According to Registered Associate Nutritionist Hannah Cartwright (@livewellwithhan), looking after our guts is the most effective way to enhance our overall health and wellbeing. Hannah has shared 3 of her favourite high fibre breakfasts on the blog with us.
Below are some high fibre breakfast choices that are quick, easy, cheap and simple. Having a high fibre breakfast from healthy whole grains and complex carbohydrates will digest more slowly and release a gradual increase of sugar into the blood which metabolically, is a much better profile and will not cause any blood sugar spikes or ‘afternoon slumps’.
Eli’s Peanut Butter Granola with a splash of almond milk or a scoop of coconut yoghurt. Best served with fresh fruit such as raspberries or sliced banana.
Porridge made from wholegrain oats (higher in fibre than instant oats), cooked in your milk of choice with cinnamon and chia seeds. Top it with a big spoonful of peanut butter and a handful of blueberries.
How do you like your eggs in the morning? We love poached or boiled eggs served on sourdough toast with mashed avocado, mushrooms and spinach. Sprinkle with seeds such as pumpkin seeds or sunflower seeds for an extra boost of fibre and micronutrients.
