Favorite go-to breakfast
To be quite honest, I have this love-hate relationship with breakfast. I thoroughly enjoy most of the foods that are traditionally related to breakfast – both on and off LCHF (!) – but I am not very hungry in the morning and breakfast has therefore always been the meal I skipped, if I was in a hurry or trying to save calories. The invention of “breakfast-for-lunch” or “breakfast-for-dinner” is right down my alley….
To “compensate” for the lack of morning hunger, I can eat constantly during the afternoon and evening……not a good thing.
Anyway, a favorite breakfast of mine is Greek yoghurt with heavy whipping cream, homemade nut granola and a little sprinkle of pomegranate seeds. Pomegranate seeds are not technically LCHF but they add a delicious sweet tartness and I love the way they feel when you bite them – and they constitute such a small proportion that I don’t stress over it.
Homemade nut granola
2 cups of nuts – I used almonds, brazil nuts, walnuts and hazelnuts
1/4 cup flax seeds
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1 cup shredded coconut/coconut flakes, unsweetened
3 T coconut palm sugar or similar sweetener
2 t cinnamon
1 t ground vanilla bean
Blend Greek yoghurt – full fat, not low-fat – with 4-6 T of heavy whipping cream. The amounts are really just dependent on how you prefer the consistency. Sprinkle with the granola and a few pomegranate seeds and enjoy with a cup of coffee with cream!
