I have talked about making smoothies from fresh fruits and/or vegetables. Now, I would like to embark on your traditional breakfasts with a little difference, yet still using fresh produce products.
First though, I would like to provide some simple recipe for making bread. One (1) in particular is Gluten-Free bread from Jamie Oliver. Its very simple to make and well as being nutritional.
There are many of us that love eating our bread so if you love it, keep eating it. Try eating one slice of bread instead of two (2) and remember, that eating bread in moderation, keeps you fuller for longer. Healthy alternatives to bread can be Ryvita, Crisp breads or Sourdough.
The baking industry companies tend to package their products using whole grains although what does this exactly mean? Using Whole Grain Council will give you a better understanding on labels in clarifying whole grain foods.
Rather than using your traditional jams from a jar, you can use your fresh fruit instead. If you’re also able to make your own home made wheat &/or flourless bread, then read on.
You can use fresh fruits sliced, such as nectarines, peaches, strawberries, bananas, plums or even apricots. This can be also used with almond butter or coconut spread rather than your traditional butter or margarine.
Cooking up vegetables such as broccoli or silverbeet, mixed in with a little cheese and egg with salt and pepper, on a slice of toast is another great combination.
If you don’t like broccoli or silverbeet, replaced it avacado, tomatoes with lemon or lime juice. Something different again can be avacado, figs with fresh blueberries or raspberries with cottage cheese or olive oil on top.
