We all know to 'eat more fruit and vegetables' is a good idea, but sometimes, the 'how' can be tricky.
I have loads of ideas on how to increase the nutritional content of every meal, in a tasty and easy way. Here's a nice one for starters, more of an assembly job really, and one of my favourites. Suitable for breakfast, as a substantial snack or dessert!
For more ideas, keep an eye on the recipes section in my blog.
150g mixed berries
150g natural probiotic yoghurt
2 tbsp ground seeds (like Linwoods, or milled flaxseed)
2 tbsp low sugar granola (like Paddy O's or Lizi's Original) or make your own
1 tbsp raw almonds and pecans, chopped
Layer the berries, yoghurt and ground seeds in a fancy fashion, like the photo opposite. Top with the granola and nuts for a nice crunch. Seeing the colours through a glass makes this healthy snack seem like an indulgent treat. Go for full fat natural yoghurt for a creamier and more filling version. Glenisk is my favourite, for the moment.
At this time of year, I buy frozen mixed berries instead of fresh, from any major supermarket, and defrost in the fridge.
