Breakfast tips and nutritional facts

Hi guys! This is another breakfast inspiration post for you guys :) As you might have noticed I’m a sucker for yoghurt, especially Russian yoghurt. I have some almost every morning, it’s just so delicious and at the same time good for you! Unlike other breakfast yoghurts it contains very little sugar, and that tiny sugar level is natural sugar from dairy. It also has quite a high fat percentage, which will keep you full longer, perfect for breakfast! It also contains protein and is very low in calories, which is always good :) Another reason I like Russian yoghurt so much compared to Turkish or Greek is that the Russian one is thicker and has a creamier consistency. It also has a milder, sweeter flavor, I find other yoghurts to be very sour and slightly bitter.

I like to add berries or fruits to my yoghurt, along with some type on nuts like hazelnuts, almonds or shredded coconut. This morning I picked some raspberries from my grandparent’s garden and added some chopped up hazelnuts. Devine! :D Berries are high in antioxidants that clean your body of toxins and like fruit they contain a good source of natural sugar and vitamins. Nuts are a great source of natural fat, which along with the yoghurt will keep you full longer, but I mostly add them for the crunch :) It’s natures own healthy cereal.

To this I also had an egg, which is another one of my breakfast staples. Eggs contain 15 of the 24 nutrients that your body needs every single day, so starting off your day with one or more are very beneficial. Eggs contain omega 3 and 6, along with 7 of 9 essential amino acids and vitamin B and D. Eggs are very nutritionally packed with a low calorie level, so it’s a great thing to include in your everyday diet :)

I hope you are all having a great day and I’ll talk to you soon! What are your favorite things to have for breakfast? Healthy or unhealthy, let me know in the comments! :D
