On one of those lazy mornings when you cannot be bothered to do any cooking or you may be running late for work, here is a nice breakfast idea to give you that early morning boost before you hit the road.
Even if you don’t want to hit the road, you can still have this breakfast and lounge around the house doing absolutely nothing. Laziness is not to be encouraged mind you. But you are allowed one lazy day every now and again.
So here’s a lazy breakfast to get your day going.
It’s a Weetabix biscuit Greek Yogurt and blueberry breakfast.

Sit back and enjoy!
When I tested this recipe on myself, I got a blood sugar level of 5.1 mmol/l (91.8mg/dl) at 1 hour post-meal. That’s well within the healthy range. For me, this is a healthy breakfast that suits your metabolic health. Obviously if you have blood glucose testing kit, you may want to test it on yourself to get your own customized result.
The 250 gm of Greek yogurt represents 2 and half serving. I believe 1 serving of 100 gm of Greek Yogurt is too small for a grown adult. Hence I go for the 2 servings and a half.
How much of the Greek yogurt you need would depend on your habitus and your energy needs for the day. Maybe one and a half serving might be okay for you. Maybe you need 3 servings. Work out how much you need and by all means, go for it.
Think of this as one of your longevity-inspired designed recipes and judging by the blood glucose levels, it is not a glucose-spiking food by any stretch.
