How many of you would think that good nutrition starts with a good nutritious breakfast? Definitely not me when I was staying on my own. I didn’t really put much effort to make sure I have a good breakfast. It was either getting a hefty breakfast or skipping one altogether. Back then, breakfast to me is the least important meal of the day. That was then. Ever since I became a mother and done a bit of research on child’s nutrition, I started appreciating the benefit of getting into the habit of eating a healthy and nutritious breakfast. It’s not just any breakfast it has to be a healthy and nutritious one. Nowadays I make sure my family gets a nutritious breakfast to start the day.
Like many of you, I have problem getting up early to prepare an elaborate breakfast, especially when I am still semi-conscious and my “engine” hasn’t warmed up yet. Thus, I only choose those healthy breakfast recipes that are quick and easy to prepare and still allow me ample time to enjoy the breakfast with my family. One of them is this strawberry crunch /strawberry yogurt parfait, which I will now share with you.
This strawberry crunch is not only super-healthy but also super-easy to make. It has the combination of nutritious ingredients such as yoghurt, fresh fruit, honey, oats and nuts, all of which are perfect selections for breakfast. Here are some healthy facts about this recipe:
If you want to speed up your preparation in the morning, you can toast the oats and nuts over-night and store them in the fridge. Then you only need to assembly all the required ingredients during breakfast. Tada! The eye-pleasing strawberry crunch will be ready in seconds! Does this parfait look impressive enough to “wake you up”?
For a tasty twist, try swapping strawberries with any choice of your favourite fresh fruit such as kiwi fruit, bananas, mangoes, blueberries and peaches, or even a mixed combination of them. Do you know that you can also make some healthy snack bars by tweaking this recipe as what I did in my earlier post?
On a separate note here, on 1st May 2010, Foodbuzz had launched a new section called Healthbuzz which features and promotes various health and nutrition-related content from across the community of Featured Publishers.
