Ricotta and Berry Breakfast
This is a nutrient dense, low starch start to the day.
Ingredients (Serves 1)
- 1/2 cup ricotta
- 2 tbs natural yoghurt
- 80g mixed berries (frozen and thawed are fine)
- 5 walnut halves, chopped
- 1 tbs dessicated coconut
- Mix together. Add a drizzle of maple syrup if desired.
- Consume! Ricotta has plenty of calcium and protein, and is made from whey, a low allergy dairy food. Whey contains lactoferrin, a potent immune boosting compound. Berries contain anthocyanins, valuable antioxidants helping to prevent a host of conditions including heart disease, diabetes and cancer. Yoghurt provides calcium and probiotics. The walnuts are another burst of protein and provide plenty of omega 3 fatty acids. Coconut provides fibre and other good fatty acids.
