Dear Gluten-Free Readers,
Eating a large, nutritious breakfast is one the best ways to start your day off right. Not only does eating a big healthy breakfast boost your metabolism, but it also helps you from getting hungry and improves your mood for your A.M. errands and work! This being said, making a substantial, healthy, great tasting breakfast is not always an easy task when you’re trying to get the kids out the door. Time is your enemy in the morning, so I here are some of my favorite quick Gluten-Free breakfast options that will start your day off right!
Granola with Bananas, Organic Yogurt and Almond Butter:
¾ Organic Banana Sliced
½ Cup of Granola (I prefer Boulder Granola’s GF Granola; it’s made with 100% organic ingredients and sweetened with real maple syrup! bouldergranola.com)
½ Cup of your favorite organic yogurt (I use Stonyfield, www.stonyfield.com )
1-2 tablespoons of Almond Butter (I prefer Justin’s Chocolate or Maple Almond Butters; they add a nice all-natural sweetness to the bowl justins.com. However, if you are using flavored yogurt maybe consider using a non-sweetened, non-flavored almond butter. MaraNatha makes an organic Almond Butter, maranatha.com).
This is one of my favorite morning meals because it has a full spectrum of nutrition and all of the ingredients taste great together. As pictured, I generally keep the yogurt, granola and almond butter separate with the sliced banana on top. This helps keep the granola from getting soggy and it also allows me to control the amount of each ingredient I have in a spoonful.
