Nowadays, many people live their life in a fast lane. They have to rush to the office early in the morning to avoid being stuck in a traffic jam and spend most of their time sitting at their desks. Without doubt, a hectic pace of city life and a sedentary lifestyle make it difficult for those people to take good care of their health, especially when it comes to having breakfast. According to the study of Harvard Medical School, breakfast is the most important meal that helps prevent people from a high risk of obesity. Those who skip breakfast are likely to develop irregular eating habit which can lead them to heart disease and diabetes.
Though having breakfast is necessary, people should eat food that is good for their health, and one of the most popular healthy choices is granola, a perfect fit for brekkie bowls. Nature’s Sensation, a wide variety of fine dried fruits and natural juice brand by Heritage Group, then would like to share ideas of how to mix granola with breakfast menus to make the most of the first meal of the day.
1. Granola Mixed Fruits
If you are not accustomed to having breakfast, try a simple menu like Granola Mixed Fruits. Just mix granola, dried mixed berries, banana, and your favorite fresh berries with low fat milk and enjoy. Not only will you get vitamins from berries and sufficient energy from granola, but the banana itself also promotes regular bowel movement.
2. Crunchy Granola Toast
For men and women who love morning exercise and are looking for some good pre-workout choice, Crunchy Granola Toast is an interesting one with simple steps of making. Just spread the Greek yogurt or peanut butter on bread and top it with the strawberries and the granola. This menu is also ideal for post-workout breakfast as granola and Greek yogurt are the good sources of protein known to build up muscle strength and aid muscle recovery. Moreover, bread is a good post-workout source of energy prompting you to work more efficiently throughout the day.
3. Granola yogurt
For those who are too busy to prepare a breakfast, granola Yogurt is a great idea as it is easy and quick to make. However, the amount of Granola should be around 1/2 – 1/4 per small cups. Eating granola in combination with Greek yogurt is also recommended.
As seen, granola is a healthy snack ideal for several brekkie bowls and beneficial to people’s health. It also fits the lifestyle of people living in urban areas. In addition to the three suggested menus above, granola is a perfect choice to complete your favorite smoothie or other healthy drinks. Nevertheless, the amount of granola is the essential factor that should not be ignored, and the granola containing no more than 12 grams of fats is recommended eating.
