Skipping Breakfast

Morning are hectic so I have started skipping breakfast.Β  I skip it because of the time, the busyness — yes — but I’ve also lost interest in toast and cereal at the moment. I needed inspiration.

My sister showed me her bulk breakfast yoghurt mix and it looked so yummy, I decided to make a version for me too. It’s easy and has sparked my interest in making time for breakfast in the morning again.

{bright ingredients}

Breakfast Oats and Yoghurt

Ingredients

Yoghurt: prepared in advance

1 Litre of Greek or Natural Yoghurt

2 Punnets Strawberries

1 Punnet Blueberries

Packet of apricot delight or ginger (optional)

Topping: put on before serving

3 Tbls rolled oats

2 Tbls Wheat Germ (optional)

2 Tbls Sunflour seeds or other seed mix (optional)

{This mix lasts my husband and I for 5 days}

In Advance

Put the yoghurt, blueberries, strawberries and apricot into a bowl or large container. Mix through. Cover and refrigerate. I put the seeds in too, to save me an extra step, but these are best added right before eating.

{that’s a lot of yoghurt}

In the Morning

Place a serving of yoghurt in a breakfast bowl and add choice of toppings. I mix wheat germ, rolled oats and sunflower seeds into the yoghurt mix.

Breakfast and I are friends again.

Do you eat breakfast every morning?

    I do a similar thing, because Breakfast and I are just not friends on weekdays!! But, mine is the lazy version, I just add store-bought museli to my yoghurt!! I think I need to try your version, it looks so good!!

      That’s it! I love breakfast (and need it!) but it’s hard when I’m not feeling like the usual. This has given me a bit of a boost.

    Ive just started smoothies – something different and easy to eat one handed while juggling the baby or helping the toddler. Can even pre make the night before and pop it in the fridge when time is tight in the mornings, but it is better fresh!

      I LOVE the idea of a smoothie too because, as you say, you can just sip away as you go. I don’t have a blender so I can’t but I’m looking into getting a Thermomix.

        With a thermomix you’ll be laughing your way through breakfast!! πŸ˜‰ I’d LOVE one too, but I just can’t justify the cost when I already have every kitchen appliance you could possibly think of. My stick blender does a perfect quick job of it – and my son thinks mummies smoothies are yummy – so I get a good fruit serving into him too!!

          Yeah, it is expensive isn’t it. I don’t have ANY kitchen stuff really…expect a crock pot. I don’t even have beaters so that’s why I think it may be a good investment for me…soon I hope!

    I have just been talking this morning about how between making school lunches and family breakfast I don’t ever quite feel like eating myself… This looks much better than cereal or toast and just as quick. Thanks muchly.

    I’m substituting the strawberries for grapes (no strawberries up here at the moment) and the blueberries for tinned ones, and the seeds/oats for my husband’s muesli flakes. Still looks pretty good! Think I might actually eat breakfast tomorrow, which will be the first time in quite a while. πŸ™‚

      I like the idea of grapes! They would keep well in the yoghurt. Hope you enjoy! πŸ™‚

    After discovering Evia Greek Style natural yogurt with no added sugar about a year ago, i do a similar thing. Mine’s less elaborate though. I added fruit occasionally but otherwise a handful of allow GI cereal for crunch, I tbsp of sunflower seeds, atbsp of pepitas and a tsp of craisins for a bit of sweetness and tang. I love it!

    […] After the retreat, I decided to do a 2 week Metamucil challenge because I was curious.Β  I believe getting the nutrients our body needs is best done directly from the food source but I do find on very busy weeks, that my diet tends to suffer. You know what? It made a big difference to how I felt, and I felt good, especially on the days I didn’t time to sit down to eat my regular breakfast. […]
