My stomach is rumbling! And lunch is still a good 2 hours away. My colleague sitting opposite me looks at me and I can see a hint of a smile on his face. Did he hear my stomach rumbling? What did I have for breakfast this morning? Oh boy, it’s slowly coming back now. It wasn’t exactly what I’d call a healthy breakfast.
I was in a bit of a hurry so I wolfed down a slice of white bread with peanut butter and a glass of sugary bottled juice. I felt full after that. But not anymore.
Now, breakfast feels like a century ago and I’m far from lunchtime. I need to eat something immediately!
But if I head to the vending machine, I’ll end up munching on crappy junk food like chocolate bar or potato chips.
A firm resolution for tomorrow’s breakfast: I’ll have yogurt with honey and walnuts so that I feel full until lunchtime.
And I’ll ditch the bottled juice (too much sugar!) and eat a banana instead. To combat my mid-morning slump, I’ll make sure to take an apple and any remaining walnuts with me.
A Healthy Breakfast Recipe: Ingredients for 1 Serving of Yogurt with Honey & Walnuts
- 2/3 cup (150 g) yogurt
- 1 tbsp honey
- A handful of walnuts, no shell
Making this healthy breakfast is straightforward.
Pour the honey over the yogurt. Chop the walnuts. Sprinkle them over the mix.
Grab your spoon and dig in!
For a full and healthy breakfast, you can eat:
- a cup of yogurt with honey and walnuts
- a banana or an apple
- a scrambled egg or two, cooked with olive oil — preferably organic eggs as they contain more omega 3
- a slice of wholegrain bread, on which you spread a little bit of butter or, even better, margarine
After that you’re good to go to work. Have a great day!
