Every new year and often many times during the year we all make these great resolutions to amongst many things lose weight.
How are you going? We are almost 2 weeks into 2018, often a couple of weeks is all most of us can manage. Instead of looking at diets as a way to lose weight, try looking at diet as a new healthier eating plan. If you’re on a restricted diet already, this can be especially challenging.
I am trying to make small but consistent changes.
My first baby step towards being healthier on a gluten and grain free diet is; I have been trying to make sure I eat a healthy breakfast. My usual breakfast was 4 coffees with sugar and milk…. not so good for you. This year I have been mixing it up depending on how busy I have been.
Really busy mornings fresh fruit or yogurt (usually while driving).
Not so busy mornings, Lost Cereal – I like the berry one, fresh fruit, yogurt and a little dribble of maple syrup
For something different you could check out our recipe for Grain free toasted muesli – just warning though this is good and likely to become your regular breakfast!
Weekends and days when I am at home, buckwheat pancakes, add more milk or milk alternatives to make a thinner crepe, or, if you have a waffle machine, add less milk and make waffles – yum!!
Top your buckwheat pancake with;
Jam or Vegemite for the Aussies.
Poached eggs and wilted spinach
Smoked salmon and cream cheese
Anything you might put on toast.
Bi-product of eating a healthy breakfast is I am drinking less coffee, I have sustained energy through the day and when my 16 year old son got home from 2 weeks away first thing he said is “you look healthier and like you have lost weight!”
I strongly recommend trying to eat as diverse a diet as possible, and as you can see from the above it is possible to eat a healthy gluten free and grain free breakfast every day.
