Health Freak Mommy’s Breakfast – 28 October 2014

Health Freak Mommy’s Breakfast – 28 October 2014

My quirky and absolutely healthy mid-morning breakfast today!  I call it quirky coz I tossed in some tortilla chips into my yoghurt for the crunch and saltiness that I craved for this morning. My first breakfast is always fruits on empty stomach followed by a […]

Maple Syrup Health Benefits

Maple Syrup Health Benefits

This morning I bought a bottle of organic 100% pure maple syrup from the mini mart.  I could not decide if I should buy it or otherwise as I think forking out RM34.90 for a 250ml bottle of syrup is just too expensive.  At the […]

Overnight Oats With Fresh Coconut Milk

Overnight Oats With Fresh Coconut Milk

This bowl of overnight oats is probably the last thing you want to eat for breakfast. But looks can be deceiving. My bowl of chilled oats for today’s breakfast tastes awesome! It reminds me of the Bircher Muesli that I often eat at hotels for breakfast, sans the grated apple.

 

 

 

 

 

Health Freak Mommy’s breakfast of overnight oats today composes of chia seeds, macadamia nuts, pumpkin seeds, ground hazelnut, fresh coconut milk and zero sugar.  All the nuts and seeds were raw and soaked with the oats and milk, except for the ground hazelnut.   The fresh coconut milk was added in last, at the time of eating.  This breakfast is suitable for diabetics and diet freaks too as it is sugar-free, low in carb and high in protein. This is just so good. Eating clean just can’t get any better!

Health Freak Mommy’s Breakfast

My breakfast for today and yesterday as well 🙂

Oats squares with yoghurt milk, ground hazelnut, toasted almond slices, pumpkin seeds and a dollop of Steffi’s sugar-free peanut butter.

 

2 lava eggs, seasoned with organic soy sauce and pepper. I used free-range chicken eggs.

 

I am trying to steer away from bread and any product that consists of yeast.  I have another yeast infection attack again, sigh!  This always happens whenever I have finished a course of antibiotics.  This year is one of the worst years for me, health wise. This is the reason why I am so anti-drugs, especially antibiotics.  But I had no choice when I had a swollen gum –  pre and post tooth extraction a few months back.  I desperately succumbed to not one but two courses of antibiotics 🙁   With a vaginal yeast infection under attack, your choice of food is really limited.  The only low carb and yeast-free breakfast that I can think of are eggs, nuts, yoghurt, yoghurt milk and low-sugar cereals.

Can you stomach unexciting breakfast like this?
