Breakfast bowl makeover in effect! We all know how much I love fibre, but can you blame me? Fibre helps with appetite and weight control, lowering blood cholesterol levels, controlling blood sugar levels, and prevention of colon cancer. I'm team fibre all of the way! I thought I would breakdown the sources of fibre in this bowl to give an example of how easy it is to incorporate this nutrient in your diet.
1/2c raspberries = 4.0g
½ banana = 1.0g
2tps pepita seeds = 0.5g
2 tsp chia seeds = 1.5-2.0g
1/4c whole grain cereal= 1.0g-8g **bran buds contain approximately 11g fibre in 1/3c!
Raspberry Banana Bowl
3/4c nonfat Greek yogurt
½ banana, medium
2tsp pepita seeds or almond slivers
2tsp chia seeds
1/4c whole grain cereal/toasted oats (e.g. Kashi go lean protein, all bran flakes, all bran buds) – optional
1 Tbsp all natural nut butter - optional
Place all of the ingredients in a bowl and ENJOY! :)
