My Healthy Breakfast in Under 5-Minutes
I know by this point breakfast talk may seem like you’re listening to a broken record, but I promise you this Easy Breakfast recipe is so worth your time! I make this low GI breakfast bowl every morning, and I swear it gives me superpowers and helps me make it through my busy, non-stop day. This easy breakfast is rich in protein from the seeds, and peanut butter, high in carbs, is the best low GI breakfast, and just downright good for you!
Breakfast should take no time to make, and I really mean that. So that is why this low GI breakfast is so amazing. It takes 5-minutes to make. You must be organized though, and have everything prepared! On weekends when Andrew is not working I make him this breakfast (but with honey because he does not like coconut nectar, at all). Andrew typically does not eat a lot in the morning, but for some reason, this breakfast and he really get along.

What does low GI (glycemic index) mean?
The glycemic index (GI) is a measure of how carb-containing foods affect your blood sugar levels. A GI value of 55 or lower is considered to be a low GI breakfast/meal, while 70+ is high. Our bodies breakdown carbs into glucose and insulin pass this over to power our cells. High-GI foods make our blood glucose levels spike and crash.
Some low GI foods are:
- Whole grains
- Dairy products

How do you make the best low GI breakfast?
- Boil a few cups of water with your kettle. I think I typically need around 2 cups of water for one breakfast, so double or triple as you need
- Add all the ingredients for the oats into a pot, and then cover with boiling water, and let it cook for a few minutes on low heat
- In the meantime mash one banana in the base of your breakfast bowl
- Once your oats are done add your oats to the bowl, then begin adding your toppings
It’s that easy! I really hope you all give this recipe a go. Not just because it is easy but because your body deserves to be nourished, and well taken care of!
