It is always important to start your morning off right, so having a healthy, power packed gluten free breakfast goes a long way. After a long night of sleep [okay, let’s be honest – we don’t always get that!] our body needs to refuel. Putting breakfasts that are full of sugar and carbs and loaded with calories are not good for anyone, let alone kids who need the nutrition to grow properly and function through the day.
Depending on work or school schedule, it may be a bit of time before you can snack again so that breakfast you have should tide you over until you can refuel. One of my favorite breakfasts for tiding me over until lunch time is having quionoa flakes with fruit and yogurt [naturally gluten free], but there are so many more options!
Why not try some buckwheat cereal or oatmeal, sprinkled with ground flax seed along with fruit, both can be served with yogurt, regular milk or almond/rice milk, for a healthy long lasting breakfast. Both are available gluten free and provide a healthier alternative to foods high on the glycemic index.
These Low-GI foods are digested and absorbed slower, thus helping control appetite and delay hunger so they are great benefits to weight control too!
