The “go to” recipe for getting back on track! As the cornerstone of my book Ace Your Health where I outline why breakfast is the most important meal of the day, this is one lovin’ spoonful.  It tastes great and is loaded with protein, nutrients and fibre that will set you up for a brilliant day ahead.

Preparation time: 6 minutes

½ cup plain, low-fat yogurt

1 apple, grated*

1 tbsp uncooked oatmeal

1 tbsp slivered almonds

1 tbsp white chia seeds (see King of Spades)

½ cup frozen blueberries

¼ cup hulled hemp seeds (see King of Spades)

1 tsp ground cinnamon

* or ½ cup unsweetened applesauce

Mix all of the ingredients together and you will have the right amount of protein (about 10 grams), fibre and nutrients to set you up for the day. Serve immediately or cover and keep remaining portion(s) in fridge up to 3 days.

I love food, try to watch my weight, know more than I want to about healthy living (sometimes I wish I knew less so I wouldn’t feel so guilty when I stumble), am a daughter, sister, friend, mom and wife who worries and scurries the meals onto the table. It is for all these reasons that I completed my nutrition, RNCP designation, wrote my book, hosted my Food Network show, consult with food companies to urge them to get it right (or at least better), constantly write about it, research it, all of this so I can cut through the nutrition and food “news” clutter. Happy to share with friends!
