Breakfast

Granola bowl inspiration

Tasty breakfast bowl!

Starting your day best way possible is key. Prioritize a healthy and nutritious breakfast like this one! It has probiotic coconut yoghurt which is dairy free and has good bacterias for your gut. Top it with fiber rich granola, which will make you full over a longer time and not crave for sugary foods. Add some blueberries for antioxidants that will help you with your immune system. Also you can have some raspberry jam/sauce which is easy to make. In a saucepan, pour in frozen raspberries on under medium heat and cook it till it becomes like on the picture. Raspberries contains dietary fiber and is beneficial for your digestion. It’s a wholesome breakfast with healthy fats like nut butter and almonds in the granola. Enjoy x
