Hola lovely folks! Como Estas?

(yes i know, that’s as far as I could go with speaking a different language ย )

no worries practice makes a woman perfect ๐Ÿ˜‰ )Hope you are 1 step further into good health and nutrition.If not, well you can start today!

As I am sure all of you know,it is vital to have a good breakfast to start your day, its mentioned ample number of times in all kinds of media. However, in my personal experience, I used to end up skipping it or eat food that has no nutrition whatsoever, making me feel hungry again and again.

At the end of the day, I used to feel guilty because I had promised myself to try those delicious looking breakfast recipes I had saved on my desktop, only to feel lazy or just out of time to prepare something fancy in the morning.

So one day I just forced myself to wake up a few minutes earlier, went to the kitchen and found whatever I could put my hands on and came up with our recipe of the day, which is *drum roll, the MONKEY BREAKFAST (maybe add an echo too!)

It’s nutritious as it’s filled with nuts, seeds, fruits, healthy carbs and lots of fibre. It’s insanely filling so you won’t feel hungry for junk. Most Importantly it’s EASY TO PREPARE, one quick bowl of this and you are good to go. It’s incredibly delicious, which puts you in a good mood to start your day with.

As it’s a hearty and satiating breakfast, you have the energy needed to jump around your busy schedule, just like a monkey (not suggesting you will turn into one ๐Ÿ˜€ย ). So here we go.

TIME:5-10 min.

Serves 1 (Double quantity to share for whole family)

INGREDIENTS:

1 Banana-chopped into coins(see image for reference)

5 Pecans

Big Handful of Medium Black Raisins-(doesn’t necessarily have to be black, choose what is easily available to you)

2 Big Tbsp of Dorset Cereals in Fruit, Nut & Fibre Muesli- (I like Dorset, you can chose the muesli that is easily available to you, as long as it has seeds and nuts)

1 Cup Low-Fat Milk-chilled (It’s hot in Dubai that’s why I prefer chilled, you can opt for warm milk)

1 Tbsp Chia Seeds

Cinnamon-a big pinch

HOW TO PREPARE:

In a bowl, add in all the ingredients, one by one except milk.

Add in the milk and mix. If you feel you need more milk to get a better consistency do so, but not too much, you should get a nice bite of everything when you eat.

Serve and Enjoy with family.

Share your love.

๐Ÿ™‚

Appetizer: Cheesy Oatcake Bites

Standard

For me snacks/appetizers have always been about crisps, food deep-fried in oil filled with trans-fat. I remember a time, when I finished the whole box of Pringles crisps at one go :D.

I love my evening snacks and wanted something healthy yet delicious. It’s vegetarian and very easy to make. Hope you like it ๐Ÿ™‚

Time: 15-20 mins.

Ingredients:

Nairns Oatcakes (I opted for the cheese flavoured) – 8 pieces

Britannia’s 50-50 Snackuits (I opted for the Pizza flavoured, others taste equally delicious) – 8 pieces

Green Olives sliced- 20-25 pieces

Homemade fresh coleslaw:

Regular Plain Yogurt: 1 cup

Carrots grated- 1 tablespoon

Cucumber grated- 1 tablespoon

Cabbage grated- 1 tablespoon

Black pepper- a good sprinkle

How to make:

Coleslaw: Mix the ingredients and keep to chill for sometime, for around 10 minutes.

Place the oatcakes on the plate, place coleslaw over the cakes. Add the olives and garnish with the snackuits.

Eat them right away or serve up for your health-conscious guests. They are delicious crunchy bites that destroy your hunger pangs right away.

P.S- These are the brands that I used, you can use the ones that are easily available to you.
