Healthy Breakfast Options

The holiday season is about to end. Am sure that everyone is busy with getting the kids/themselves back to school/work.

I've been spending the last couple of days stocking up on my cereal supplies for breakfast. I was looking for a particular brand of cereal as I've got to ensure that there is no added sugar/salt in the cereal. Yes, one has to be more careful with nutrition these days.

I've shared my Dad's breakfast oats recipe previously and of late, I've decided to use skimmed milk instead of water to soak the oats. After adding a variety of fresh fruits with the oats, the results is a very delicious and fulfilling breakfast.

Another variety was to add cereal with sliced almonds and dried fruits on top of the fruits. It sounds quite complicated but in fact, is a very quick and simple breakfast to prepare. Not only that, it is highly nutritious with all the required vitamins and fibre for a good start.

When there is home-baked bread at home, I often like to make toast with it. A recent favourite of mine is to have peanut-butter toast with sliced bananas. The recipe is so simple & quick, I didn't realize why I hadn't thought about it earlier!

The only ingredients required are:
  • Thick slice of wholemeal bread
  • 2 teaspoon of peanut-butter (no added sugar/salt would be best)
  • 1/2 slice of medium-sized banana (not too ripe)
The steps are equally simple:

1. Toast bread.
2. Spread peanut-butter on toast.
3. Slice bananas.
4. Arrange bananas on toast.
5. Eat and enjoy with a glass of cold skimmed milk or hot drink. (^.^)

Have a great start to the week everyone!!!

  1. I like a particular cereal-like snack under Uncle Tobys but can't seem to find any over here. That was many years ago. Just recently, I tried looking for it but to no avail.

  2. Wow healthy breakfast!!!

    My breakfast consist of anything I can find in the fridge or table couple with hot milo/cereal drink and more recently hot soy milk.

    That's a really yummy looking peanut butter toast. I dislike banana so perhaps I can add another fruit on top. Hehe

    My breakfast is always fruits, fruits and more fruits! I used to eat cereals with milk and once in a while I eat toasted bread with butter and kaya.

  5. Hi all,

    Mei Teng - Hmmm.. Yeah, there's a lot more Uncle Toby's variety back in Aust. I miss a particular variety of Kellog's cereal too... Even if they do sell it here, it's sooo expensive (thanks to our weak ringgit)

    Che-Cheh - Ooo.. Hot soy milk... I like those without sugar which you can get from certain stalls. Hmm... Wonder if I should have toast tomorrow too.. Haha!

    Foong - Oooohh.. Good for you to take lots of fruits in the morning. I like a bit of kaya on my bread too at times, esp home-made kaya.

    Tekkaus - Haha.. You'll be dead because it's too healthy?
