Over the past few
weeks months that I have been suffering with the dreaded “morning” sickness, there hasn’t been much that I can eat before 11am.
This is not good news when you either have a toddler to entertain, or an employer to convince you are capable
Thankfully, I have found something that keeps me going, tastes delicious, and is low in bad cholesterol. WIN!
I guess this is a form of bircher muesli, and can be made with a hundred different ingredients (oats with different dried fruits, seeds, nuts, fresh berries, any type of milk or yoghurt, even fruit juices) but I have loved my simple version!
Please make this the night before and leave it in the fridge for the next day if you can, it’ll soften the oats and taste even better.
Apologies for the photos – I can’t find a way to make it look appetising, but looks aren’t everything guys.
Be warned – your boss may ask you why you are eating taramasalata (seriously?!) or ice cream in the office Being pregnant probably didn’t help me there!
Berry Breakfast Pot
100g yoghurt (I used 0% fat greek yoghurt, but go for the good stuff if you don’t have cholesterol issues!)
handful frozen berries (you may want to add some honey/maple/agave or some sugar if you find the berries too tart)
3 tablespoons muesli or oats (more or less is fine – see what you like most)
optional extras – seeds, nuts, dried fruits of your choice. Granola on top?
Add ingredients to a bowl or pot with lid (if you are transporting to work!).
Leave overnight in the fridge for best results.
p.s. You can buy similar “breakfast pots” at most coffee chains but your homemade version will cost you a fraction of the price and have an awful lot less sugar too! Hooray!
