My New Favorite Healthy Breakfast

I'm getting a new take on what I'm eating lately and it's getting some tweaks here and there. Not only do I want to eat less bread, but I also want to eat (at least in the coming 7 weeks) foods which will be a healthy benefit to my body and brain because of my exams. Healthy body = healthy mind.

One of the major changes is that I have incorporated dairy again. Lactose free yoghurt that is. If I would eat normal yoghurt in these amounts, my stomach wouldn't handle it well. The reason for me eating yoghurt is that it it is very filling, great protein source, low carb and best alternative if you don't want to eat soy (like me). My normal breakfast would contain two slices of spelt bread with peanut butter and jelly or pb and banana. Really satisfying and not even that unhealthy. In the weekends I would make oatmeal, but my new breakfast is just much more fulfilling and tasty.

I made my own trail mix of mixed nuts, sunflower seeds, raisins, dried cranberries, chocolate covered seeds, mulberries and chia seeds on top.

I find this so satisfying and so yummy! The yoghurt contains lots of protein and is very filling itself, but the nots have healthy fats and is very filling as well. The dried fruits, mulberries and chocolate covered seeds add a little sweetness to it which curbs my sweet tooth.

To make it even healthier I add half a banana. Seriously, this keeps me full till lunch! Also love that it has so many textures and flavors, every bite is different!

I keep my mix in a big jar

4 tbs of trail mix

Mix, add banana and chia seeds and enjoy!
