I have an issue with breakfast, I’m not keen on eating it, unless it’s pain au raisin! If you’re been reading this blog for a while you’ll be aware of how many times I’ve rebooted breakfast to keep me interested in eating it. I’ve make oatbakes, protein pots, eggcups and I’ve done granola and yogurt before but this is more grab and go solution that’s working for me at the moment. It also gets me some calcium which is an area of my diet I know I’m deficient in!
I take 400g frozen blueberries and simmer them with 1/4 cup of brown sugar and the juice of a lemon. Once it’s cooled down, I strain off some of the liquid (more on what I do with that later this week) and divide the blueberries into five jars, which I top with greek yogurt*. The jars go in the fridge and in the morning when I’m packing up my lunch, I take a jar, add some granola and pack to eat at my desk. For the moment that’s breakfast solved!
* I now buy 2 pots of low fat basics yogurt from Sainsburys and strain them, I then get about 500g of ‘greek’ yogurt and it costs 90p as opposed to £2.50 and I like the taste better!
