shake up breakfast

Wednesday, 18 January 2012

Still carting around a few Christmas kilos?

It's time for a shakeup. Why don't you join me?

This breakfast shake is high-protein, high-calcium, nutrient-rich and packed with omega-3. Enjoy it for breakfast two or three times a week (alternating with other high-protein breakfasts like eggs on wholegrain toast) but AFTER a cup of hot water with a squeeze of lemon and a 20 minute walk.

The fast-paced 20 minute walk before you eat is prime fat-burning time - followed by a cleansing hot water that will flush your system through, ready to kickstart your metabolism for the day.

Even these small changes - walking, hot water, a high protein breakfast - will change the way your body burns fat.

1 pear, cut into pieces and frozen overnight
1/2 cup skim milk
4 tablespoons low fat Greek yoghurt1/2 cup oats
1 tsp chia seeds
1/2 tsp cinnamon
2cm piece ginger, peeled and chopped (optional but utterly delish)
2 heaped tsp protein powder
1 tsp ABC spread*

*Chia seeds and ABC spread (almond, brazil, cashew) are available at health food stores or supermarkets

Tan - I'm guessing you just put it all in the blender and whiz it up?

Yep, you can also add ice but I find it dilutes it a little too much, and the frozen pear takes on that role. I have another recipe coming soon!
