simple healthy breakfast fruit nut bowl

IN A NUTSHELL
This delicious healthy breakfast is quick and easy to prepare and will ensure you start your day with plenty of nutrients and energy. It will keep hunger at bay for hours and you won’t crave that mid morning empty-calorie snack! It's also perfect as a mid-afternoon healthy treat.
____________

We simply love breakfasts. It might well be our preferred meal. We do start our day with plenty of water (check our post on morning water & lemon here!) and juice, but after a couple of hours, we usually treat ourselves to a fruity and crunchy breakfast bowl. This recipe is a perfect healthy start to your day and if you do not have the ingredients suggested, you can easily adapt it with the ones you have at home. The idea is to mix a few fresh fruits and berries with previously soaked nuts (we will cover the topic of why nuts and seeds should be soaked soon!). The lemon juice will balance the glycemic index, making sure your blood sugar level stays balanced, but it also gives this recipe that extra twist.

If you try this bowl at home, do let us know how it turned out. Did you use different ingredients? Which are your favourites? Please leave us a comment below or post a picture of your breakfast bowl on Instagram and tag it #diospirorecipes. We’d love to see how you started your day!

simple healthy breakfast fruit nut ingredients

Ingredients:
• ½ mango
• 1 orange
• 4 strawberries
• handful blueberries
• handful goji berries
• handful brazil nuts (preferably soaked in water overnight)
• juice of ½ lime or lemon

Optionals:
• handful red currants

Utensils
• knife & chopping board
• citrus juicer
• medium sized bowl

Preparation
• Wash all the ingredients.
• Peel and cut the mango, orange and strawberries into small pieces and place them in your breakfast bowl.
• Chop the brazil nuts into pieces and add them, together with the blueberries, goji berries and red currants to the rest of the ingredients.
• Squeeze the lime (or lemon) using a citrus juicer and pour the juice on your bowl.
• Mix all the ingredients and enjoy!

Notes
To soak the Brazil nuts, simply place them in a small bowl, cover them fully with filtered water and leave them soaking overnight. The next morning, throw the water out and drain the nuts. If you’d like to prep-ahead for a few days, soak and drain a larger quantity as they can be stored in the fridge for 3-4 days.
