Mmmm Breakfast!

A quote from Micheal Pollens book 'Food Rules' Food Rules: An Eater's Manual is "Breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, and dinner like a pauper". We should be making breakfast our biggest and best meal of the day to fuel us for all of our endeavours! is one great and FAST breakfast that I love!

I like Bob's Red Mill brand. It is a Whole Grain, 8 grain Hot cereal. You just boil 3/4 cup of water, then add 1/4 cup of dry cereal, reduce heat and stir until all of the water is gone (About 6-8 min). Then I add some organic sugar added!! and chop up 4 apricots. The raisins and apricots add a natural sweetness, no need to add any sugar/honey or anything else like that. Then I added some chopped up walnuts, some flax seed and 1/4 cup of light Almond milk (or soy/rice milk...whatever you have!) Now this is just what I used today, but feel free to use any other fruit and or nuts! Just be careful of dried fruit, a lot have sugar added, just read the ingredient list before buying. Check the bulk barn for some cheaper ones!! Mmmm a great way to start a wonderful day!

Also....Stay nice and hydrated!! Try the big THREE rule...3 meals, 3 snacks, and 3 litres of water...I know 3 litres sounds like a lot, but get active and you'll have a hard time stopping at 3!!!

Like the cute bowl?? It is from the dollar store (thanks Pam for introducing my to my new love!)!! I think it is so nice to really treat your meal times as something special, so bring out some nice plates/bowels...make sure they aren't too big though, portion control!
