Breakfast Energy Boost

This is what I eat every morning from Monday to Friday.  It is extremely nutritious, low in calories and fat and will prevent you from numerous trips to the fridge or snack drawer between meals.  On the weekends I then treat myself to a bagel with peanut butter and jam or waffles.  Thanks for the recipe Dad and Cindy!

Breakfast Muesli

2/3 cup regular large flake (not quick cooking) oats - I find Quaker to be the best
Enough milk (I use 1%) to cover the oats - approx. 1 cup
1/2 cup low fat, low carb yoghurt - I love Source or Silhouette Strawberry flavour
1/4 cup - chopped or sliced toasted almonds (can also eat untoasted)
3/4 - 1 cup chopped fruit of your choice - I use 1/2 banana, 1/4 cup each strawberries and blueberries


  1. Place oats in a sealed container and fill with enough milk to cover.  Soak overnight in fridge.
  2. When ready to eat, place untoasted almonds on microwavable plate or dish and microwave for approx. 11/2 -2 minutes on high until light brown in colour.  Set aside to cool.
  3. Add yoghurt and chopped fruit to the oats and stir in almonds.
  4. Enjoy!


  1. This breakfast looks delicious and easy-I will prep it tonight! Also wondering why peanut butter is a treat saved for the weekend? Its my understanding that organic peanut butter without any sugar or salt added is a healthy and nutritious snack, in moderation of course!

  2. You are awesome! I have heard you talk about your breakfast of champion for years, and maybe now I'll try it. I go crazy without breakfast, and Timmie's has become a too frequent stop on the way to work. I'll let you know!
