Make Breakfast count…
Breakfast is often one of the most challenging meals of the day as we are time-poor and busy rushing out of the house. However it can be one of the most important meals with regards to balancing blood glucose levels and providing energy for the day ahead. Typically breakfasts are highly repetitive and based around carbohydrate and high sugar foods such as toast and spreads, cereal and milk, and croissants and baked goods. The recipes shared here provide a more balanced mix of carbohydrates, protein and healthy fats, along with fruit and vegetables to contribute towards your 7-a-day, all to support the body’s metabolic needs and boost energy. Aim to vary breakfasts throughout the week to get a wide range of nutrients (vitamins and minerals). Download these posters for some added inspiration by clicking on the images below.
