fresh strawberry and low-fat yogurt


Simple Breakie: Low-fat Yogurt and Fresh Strawberry

How you should start your day?
With a good breakie, of course.

At times, I love mine with a cup of Low-fat Yogurt and Fresh Fruit: Fresh Strawberry, 2 slices of toasts and a cup of "morning breakfast" tea.

I very much value good Breakfast. Maybe, because its the only meal that we always eat/share together at home everyday and everybody gets to be at ease sitting and talking to catch up with everything.

Breakfast is very important meal to start your day and as people trend to get bored easily.(Oh well, we do)
So, what you can do is to try to change your daily menu. It's important that you must have carbohydrate in your breakfast, especially with complex carbohydrate like "7 grains" or "whole wheat".

Complex Carbohydrate is necessary for women: it stimulates our metabolism system and it keeps us full for long hours till Lunch time.

"Complex carbohydrates or starch are simply sugars bonded together to form a chain. Digestive enzymes have to work much harder to access the bonds to break the chain into individual sugars for absorption through the intestines.

For this reason digestion of complex carbohydrates takes longer. The slow absorption of sugars provides us with a steady supply of energy and limits the amount of sugar converted into fat and stored!"


Anyway, I can show you how I arrange my daily breakfast in a week.

Yum! Gorgeous breakfasts! In the summer I usually have smoothies with fruit, soy milk and flaxseed. Sometimes just some yogurt and fruit. In the colder months I love a bowl of oats with some dried fruit and some soy milk.
