I’ve done well to maintain eating healthy over the past year, but the holiday indulgences took over a bit throughout December. Now that the holidays are over, temptation has been put away and I am back to exploring new, inventive and healthy recipes to tempt the taste buds.

Breakfast is my favourite meal of the day, and weekend breakfast is the time where I can spend time preparing tasty delights.

This weekend I spied some ricotta leftover in the fridge, some eggs and jalapeño peppers… Perfect for a healthy omelette.

The combination of spicy jalapeños and creamy ricotta is fantastic. I used two eggs, heaped tablespoon of ricotta and half of a jalapeño pepper finely chopped. Fast, easy and tasty!

In my quest to eat healthy and get fit, I have been eating a lot of Total Greek yoghurt for breakfast. One of my favourite things to eat is an adaptation of the recipe for Magical Breakfast Cream from Mireille Guliano’s French Women Don’t Get Fat Cookbook.  

MBC ingredients

In my recipe, I use Total 0% Greek Yoghurt, fresh lemon juice, honey, ground almond and ground bran flakes.  According to MyFitnessPal it only has 268 calories.   A very healthy breakfast after a morning walk.

Lemon

The lemon is a great morning pick me up.

Honey

The honey sweetens it and adds a bit more luxuriousness.

Bran Flakes

And the bran flakes add crunch. This is one of my favourite breakfasts.

Additionally to mix things up, I’ve enjoyed Total Greek’s 0% Yoghurt with Strawberry with a bowl of Bran Flakes on the side this week.

Total Greek with Strawberries

Total Greek Yoghurt in the morning is a perfect way to start the day.

* I am reviewing Total Greek Yoghurt in a series of posts over the next week. I am not being paid to do so, but have been sent the yoghurt free of charge from Total. These views are my own. *
