An apple a day keeps the doctor away
Breakfast is a key factor in starting your mornings off the right way. It kick starts your metabolism and refuels your body with the energy and nutrients it needs to keep you alert and functioning throughout the day.
However, in saying that, refueling your body with all the wrong sorts of things in the morning can also leave one feeling drained and demotivated for the rest of the day. There is a reason it’s described as the most important meal of the day.
So on that note, here is our favorite breakfast recipe at the moment, cinnamon-stewed apples with crushed almonds and plain yogurt. Apples are an excellent source of vitamin C which has been said to reduce the likelihood of developing heart diseases and arthritis. The fructose in apples is also believed to increase uric acid productions which help with antioxidant activity. Almonds are a great source of vitamin E, magnesium, fibre and protein and cinnamon is said to lower blood sugar and also reduce heart disease risk factors.
All in all this breakfast is a great source of energy, it tastes delicious and is super convenient as it can be made in bulk and kept in the fridge.
Cinnamon-stewed apples with crushed almonds and plain yogurt
Peel and core your apples and chop them into eighths.
Stew them in a pot with a little water and cinnamon to taste until they are soft. Around 15min.
Serve with a few tablespoons of either plain yogurt or coconut cream and top with the almonds. The almonds can be either served raw or dry roasted, both ways are great!
