Healthy, Cooked Breakfast For The New Year
A Healthy Cooked Breakfast?
By Karen Thorne
It may seem a contradiction but it is possible to have a healthy and delicious cooked breakfast.
First, start with a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice – full of vitamin C and counts as one portion of fruit and veg.
Then a bowl of porridge made with half semi skimmed milk and half water. Top with just a teaspoon of unrefined sugar. Oats are Low GI so keep you going through the day and also contain soluble fibre which is good for the heart and for lowering cholesterol. The milk contains protein and calcium – both essential for good health.
Then the cooked bit. I suggest 2 rashers of lean grilled back bacon, a poached egg, one grilled tomato, a large grilled flat mushroom and baked beans.
Some survey said that people who eat eggs in the morning are shown to be slimmer than those who don’t. Again full of protein. The tomatoes and mushroom count as one portion of vegetable each. The beans are full of fibre – recommendations say you should be 18g of fibre a day.
Then have a bowl of prepared fruit – another 2 portions of fruit with a natural yoghurt.
Finish with a slice of wholemeal toast with a small amount of butter – much better in my opinion to have a small amount of natural butter than synthetically produced margarine. The toast contains fibre and also wholegrains which are good for the health.
Perfect and no desire to snack on unhealthy foods for the rest of the day!
