Healthy Option New Year Breakfast Diet | 2014

Wednesday, 1 January 2014

Now i know this type of DIY healthy food'y stuff isn't my regular type of post but as i make the rules around here i thought i would share with you my new healthy option breakfast for 2014.
Now by no means am i dieting strictly or being a crazy calorie counting mad women, i just think its about time i looked after myself that little bit more.
After finding a new job in an office September last year, it was a big transition for myself going from being on my feet all day, running around to sitting on my butt in front of a computer. 
Don't get me wrong I'm enjoying every minute of it (the job not sitting on my bum all day) but doing less exercise like walking everywhere when i didn't have a car is starting to catch up with me it might not be totally visible on the outside but to me i need to get my arse in gear and do something about it rather than drown in self pity and McDonald burgers! (They really don't help being so tasty and a 5 minute walk away from work!)

So as the little things add up I've bit the bullet, and been supermarket shopping in which i picked up some healthier alternatives to what i would usually eat.

Before I continue showing you my healthy breakfast alternative a few other things I've started to do are:

Walk the dog we have three Labradors one of which is only 5months old so I've taken on the challenge of walking her everyday for 30 minutes - 1 hour not only for her benefit but mine too!
(my dad's the dog walker usually)

Cut down or stop eating white bread,

Intimidated by the gym like me? Do 20-30 minutes exercise around the house EVERYDAY (YouTube will be your workout buddy with this one),

Eat smaller portions, 

Don't Stuff your face unless its with fruit & veg,

Last of all don't cut out sugary snacks altogether in the name of the shaytards have a dedicated sugar day and stick to it!
Healthy Breakfast Alternative Time.......

You'll need granola of your choice mine is granola clusters,
Bran flakes for extra crunch (optional),
Bite size fruit whatever takes your fancy - apples, blueberry, blackcurrants, cranberries etc,
Natural Yoghurt,
I use the fat free Greek-Style Yoghurt just because i like this particular one but with many kinds/brands out there its trial & error I suppose as I know this type of yoghurt has an acquired taste!

Essential Tools

Mornflake Granola Clusters with Dried Sultana & Apples

Small Handful of Granola pieces



Plain Handful of Bran Flakes


Fruit of your choice i particularly like strawberry & raspberries in mine!


Don't go over board on the fruit remember to eat in moderation not over indulge


Four chopped strawberries


A bunch of crushed raspberries (use your fingers)

1/4 of your preferred yoghurt approximately two heaped tablespoons just to bind/slightly coat everything 


Mix everything in your bowl and voila you have an amazing healthy breakfast alternative.
Now i'm not 100% sure of how many calories this type of dish would contain but as an estimate 280? 
Something along those lines maybe, like i said before I'm not calorie counting & something i do know is this is a lot tastier than just a bowl of coco-pops!

Don't worry it's an empty box!

I hope this post has been somewhat helpful it's quite been enjoyable to put together!

What are your healthy tips for 2014?
