This is one of my fast breakfast ideas. It is quick to put together. Requires absolutely no skill whatsoever.

What am I talking about?

What you need (Ingredients):
Weetabix biscuit X 2
Greek Yogurt 2 and a half Serving
Almond nuts
A cup of tea or coffee to flush your breakfast down (optional)

Weetabix Nutritional information.

2 Biscuits of Weetabix provide the following:

Calories 136kcal
Fat 0.8g
Saturated Fat 0.2g
Carbohydrates 26g
Sugar 1.7g
Fibre 3.8g
Protein 4.5g
Salt 0.10g
Vitamin B1 (Thiamin) 0.35g
Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin) 0.45g
Niacin 5.3g
Folic acid 64mcg
Iron 4.5mg

2 weetabix biscuits are regarded as a single serving for an adult. Naturally you could have more if you prefer. I like the fact that the sugar content in the single serving of 2 biscuits is only just 1.7gm.

Greek Yogurt Nutritional information:

A standard cup of Greek yogurt contains 5 servings. The standard cup has 500g of yogurt. So one serving would be 100g.

For me, that amount is just too small. I will use up a 500g cup as 2 servings. Essentially I split it up in 2, so my 1 serving would be 250g of Greek Yogurt.

I particularly like this brand of Greek yogurt as the fat content is low and the sugar content is less than 6gm. It suits what I am doing right now.

Be careful of the sugar content of whatever brand of Greek yogurt you choose especially when it is low fat. I will steer clear of any brand or type whose sugar content is approaching 10gms or more.

almonds
I sprinkle Almonds on the Greek yogurt to improve the nutritional value of the breakfast. Get in some monounsaturated fat and other essential nutrients whilst I can.

Nutritional information for Almonds:

How to prepare:
Not rocket science for this Weetabix, Greek Yogurt and Alomnds breakfast.

Here’s how.

1. Chuck 2 Weetabix biscuits into a bowl.
2. Scoop onto the bowl 250g of Greek yogurt
3. Add a handful of almonds.

…and eat up the lot.

You may have a cup of coffee to match.

This breakfast recipe is blood sugar-friendly. When I tested myself 1 hour after having this breakfast, my blood sugar came back as 5.1mmol/l (91.8mg/dl). That’s the kind of blood sugar you want after a breakfast like this. This weetabix, greek yogurt and almond breakfast doesn’t spike your blood glucose unnecessarily.

Enjoy!
