This is one of my fast breakfast ideas. It is quick to put together. Requires absolutely no skill whatsoever.
What am I talking about?
Weetabix Biscuits Greek Yogurt Almond Breakfast
What you need (Ingredients):
Weetabix biscuit X 2
Greek Yogurt 2 and a half Serving
A cup of tea or coffee to flush your breakfast down (optional)
Weetabix Nutritional information.
2 Biscuits of Weetabix provide the following:
|Vitamin B1 (Thiamin)||0.35g|
|Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin)||0.45g|
2 weetabix biscuits are regarded as a single serving for an adult. Naturally you could have more if you prefer. I like the fact that the sugar content in the single serving of 2 biscuits is only just 1.7gm.
Greek Yogurt Nutritional information:
A standard cup of Greek yogurt contains 5 servings. The standard cup has 500g of yogurt. So one serving would be 100g.
For me, that amount is just too small. I will use up a 500g cup as 2 servings. Essentially I split it up in 2, so my 1 serving would be 250g of Greek Yogurt.
But the nutritional information below is for 1 serving of 100gm:
I particularly like this brand of Greek yogurt as the fat content is low and the sugar content is less than 6gm. It suits what I am doing right now.
Be careful of the sugar content of whatever brand of Greek yogurt you choose especially when it is low fat. I will steer clear of any brand or type whose sugar content is approaching 10gms or more.
I sprinkle Almonds on the Greek yogurt to improve the nutritional value of the breakfast. Get in some monounsaturated fat and other essential nutrients whilst I can.
Nutritional information for Almonds:
100gm of Almonds
Almonds also contain Calcium, Vitamin B2, Vitamin B6, Magnesium, Manganese, Phosphorus and Iron
How to prepare:
Not rocket science for this Weetabix, Greek Yogurt and Alomnds breakfast.
1. Chuck 2 Weetabix biscuits into a bowl.
2. Scoop onto the bowl 250g of Greek yogurt
3. Add a handful of almonds.
…and eat up the lot.
You may have a cup of coffee to match.
This breakfast recipe is blood sugar-friendly. When I tested myself 1 hour after having this breakfast, my blood sugar came back as 5.1mmol/l (91.8mg/dl). That’s the kind of blood sugar you want after a breakfast like this. This weetabix, greek yogurt and almond breakfast doesn’t spike your blood glucose unnecessarily.
