Try this high protein breakfast cereal
Try this as a high protein, kickstart breakfast alternative -
Take a 5lb protein tub and leave about 1 inch of protein powder in the bottom
Add your fav nut and seed mix.
Shake it all up well and serve with a few scoops of natural yogurt
This is what I put in mine:
oats, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, hep seed, linseed, walnuts, almonds, brazil nuts, pecan nuts, goji berries, cranberries, dried apricots, pitted prunes, pitted dates and some tropical fruit mix.
It takes a bit of smashing up to get the consistency right but boy is it worth the effort - and it is really tasty and a great source of complete proteins, minerals such as zinc, magnesium and iron (to mention just a few) and healthy fats and Omegas.
Remember to chew well - so you may need to wake up a bit earlier :@)
This mix is also perfect for a mid morning snack.
To improve it still further - soak the nuts and seeds overnight to trigger sprouting. This enhances the mineral and vitamin content and reduces any inhibitors which make the mix difficult to digest.
