Breakfast On The Run

Yoghurt Papaya Spread

 


Yoghurt Papaya Spread on:

Gluten Free Toast or a Gluten Free Pancake. Delicious and fresh :)

Make up a batch of Yoghurt Papaya Spread and keep it in the fridge, or freeze it for a later date.

 

 

 

Add a small Stone Fruit Salad to give you great sources of digestive enzymes.  Stone fruit is in season right now. Fruit is best eaten in season as it is more likely to be fresh and not frozen for months before your purchase.

Ingredients for Papaya Yoghurt Spread:

  • ½ cup natural yoghurt- Greek Yoghurt is my favourite.
  • One slice of papaya, diced
  • 3 to 4 tspns of unsweetened pineapple juice, fresh is best always.
  • A touch of natural sweetener like Stevia, or raw honey if you need it.
  • 2 ice cubes.
  • 50gms of natural walnuts.

How to make it work:

Mix all ingredients in a blender together. Go the vitamix if you have one; or the magic bullet (less to clean up). Tastes best when slightly chilled hence the ice cubes.

Top your gluten free toast or pancake with your papaya yoghurt spread. Enjoy a small fresh stone fruit salad on the side. This breakfast can aid in:

  • Supporting the digestive system
  • Strengthens the immune system
  • Supports the intestinal flora
  • Is rich in enzymes such as bromelain & papain especially if you use organic fruits.
  • Give you an alkaline boost which may help to flush your body of excess waste.

 

Protein Waffles

 

This is a naughty treat breakfast for me although I did find the recipe for protein waffles some time back but have not been able to source cottage cheese dry curds. If you find them, let me know and I will make my own waffles, protein based. In the mean time, I just buy them.

You could use bread as a base, or even a crumpet if you like them. This breakfast is not a usual part of the recommended diet due to the sugar/carb base but I do like it every now and then. Noone is perfect all the time, and my site here is to share some favourites with you.

Enjoy xx

The waffle/crumpet/toast/ will generally be high G.I. This means a fast release of sugar into the blood stream, however when it is topped with cottage cheese which is a cource of protein, the release of sugar into the blood stream is slowed significantly making this an ‘OK’ option evern once ins a while.

Top your toast/crumpet/waffle with cottage cheese (protein) and blueberries (antioxidants to the max with loads of fibre). Yum!! Easy and fast.

 

Avocado and Cottage Cheese on toast

 

I choose gluten free toast as often as I can if I eat bread which is not often. However, when I am rushing, and I’m hungry this is a good option.

Toast is easier to digest than bread. Gluten free bread is much like cardboard untoasted any way so why wouldn’t you toast it? You can get some amazing gluten free bread from the supermarket these days. They are finally catching up on the demand. SO don’t feel strange asking for it there, or in a restaurant. In actual fact, if the restaurant you are in does NOT serve gluten free bread as an option-I would wonder why.

  • 60 g of light cottage cheese is one serve of protein
  • Fresh herbs from your herb garden- I know you have one right?! It will change your dining experience in a flash. Never again will you buy the wilted tasteless ‘fresh’ herbs from your local supermarket!!
  • Slice of avocado, drizzle with a small amount of olive oil and balsamic vinegar
  • Grilled zucchini
  • Sprinkle with sea salt and pepper to taste.
  • Option: teensy bit of feta cheese to sprinkle on top.

This meal has one portion of carb; one portion of fat; one portion of protein.

PERFECT!! ENJOY!!

Bob’s your uncle! (Well he is mine anyway!)

 

Cottage Cheese on Toast

 

Low Fat Cottage Cheese on Gluten Free Toast

Practical breakfast for people on the run.

I’ve got marmite under there – and I KNOW thats not everyone’s cup of tea – so take that or leave it. That is up to you.

Add grated green veges on top if you like. Choose zucchini.

I have zata on top- same thing as dukkah – its a Mediterranean topping usually used for oil and bread. It adds flavour without calories.

Use paprika to aid your digestion.

Salt and pepper to taste.

Although I have said this is a good breakfast for people on the run… NEVER eat on the run. Your digestion is compromised due to high stress levels. You may not psychologically register that you have actually eaten!! People who eat on the run often find themselves overeating and ‘thinking’ they are hungr, when they ARE NOT.

MAKE yourself  SIT and eat for 5-10 minutes, and if you just can’t make the time =- GET UP 10 MINUTES EARLIER.

ONE LIFE LIVE IT WELL XX

Hey Antoinette!! 1/4 avocado is one portion of good fat in the diet – the right fats actually help the body shed fat so enjoy!! Try cottage cheese and blueberries too- tell me what you think of that!! GF breads I like- Sol Breads are good. Not sold in the supermarkets but in bakeries up here. The guten free bread from the supermarket is ok for me too though – it is softer than the Sol Bread. Gluten Free always needs to be toasted – as a bread – no go – its like cardboard. Toasted bread is easier for the body to digest thougg so I rarely eat any bread untoasted. I never eat guten free white bread as, when you think about it, gluten free white bread is still the same as regular white bread- glue. 😉 xxTry the toghurt and pancakes – its alkalising and refeshing xx Thanks for all your feedback. I greatly appreciate it xx
