I enjoyed a delicious and nutritious greek yogurt breakfast bowl this morning! Yum!
I just love making yogurt bowls because they are so easy to prepare! Plus you can add anything you want to it such as fruits, granola, seeds, honey, peanut butter, chocolate chips, the options are endless!
Here’s what I added to mine:
–Vanilla Almond Granola which adds nice crunch and texture and improves digestion
–Maca Powder which is good for improving your mood and boosting your energy
–Chia Seeds they are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, packed with protein, and are rich in antioxidants
-Blueberries are filled with antioxidants and improves brain function
Tell me what you like to add to your yogurt bowls?
What’s something that you add to your yogurt bowls that you think people would find to be unusual? lol
I know we all have those annoying breakouts here and there! Acne may be something that you deal with on a regular basis which can be even more irritating!
But here are a few DIY face masks to help reduce acne and face scars! Check it out!
1. Breakfast Cereals
Many people think cereal is a good breakfast choice for children and adults.
But cereals are highly processed and contain mostly refined grains and sugar.
Nutrients are also artificially added in a process called fortification.
Even the “healthier” cereals are normally loaded with a lot of sugar.
2. Pancakes and Waffles
Both of these items have flour, eggs, sugar, and milk. Although they have more protein than other breakfast items, pancakes and waffles are very high in refined flour. Many researchers believe that refined grains like wheat flour contribute to insulin resistance and obesity.
Since pancakes and waffles are dressed with syrup, that adds even more sugar along with high fructose corn syrup.
Although muffins have a reputation for being healthy, they are pretty much just small cakes. They contain refined flour, vegetable oils, eggs, and sugar.
Commercially sold muffins are often very large. One review found that a typical packages muffin exceeds the USDA standard portion size by 333%! 😯
4. Sweetened Non-Fat Yogurt
Many non-fat yogurts contain more sugar than a comparable serving of ice cream!
Fat keeps you full because it takes longer to digest than carbs, and it triggers the release of the fullness hormone cholecystokinin (CCK).
5. Granola Bars
Granola bars may sound like great breakfast options but they actually contain a lot of added sugar.
Some of the popular brands contain a combination of sugar, corn syrup, and honey.
Granola bars have a low protein content which is another confirmation that this is not a good choice for breakfast.
6. Processed, Gluten Free Breakfast Foods
Eating many of the processed gluten free foods now available may cause problems.
For instance, a combination of flours that are made from rice, potatoes, and tapioca replaces wheat flour in gluten free bread and baked goods.
These flours have a high glycemic index which raises blood sugar rapidly, leads to increased appetite, and weight gain!
So it’s probably a good idea to limit these items in your diet or better yet, don’t eat them at all!
You’re probably wondering what you SHOULD be eating for breakfast right?! Well I got cha covered!
Stay tuned for some of the HEALTHIEST food choices to eat in the morning! 😁
1. Avocado and Chocolate
Out of crazy weird combos, I would try out the bacon and peanut butter since I’m a fan of both. It’ll probably have a sweet and salty taste to it!
Avocado and chocolate sound interesting! They’re both soft and have a creamy taste so this could work.
The only combo that I’m a little thrown off by is the orange and olives! Olives have such a tangy taste and firmer texture. Oranges are a have a slight tang but are still sweet so I’m not sure how these two items would taste together.
So what do you guys think of these food pairings?!
Have you guys had any of the food combos before?
I’d be interested to hear about your experience!
