A Personal Trainers Favourite Breakfast

A Personal Trainers Favourite Breakfast - Rolled Oats With Mixed Nuts and HoneyYes, this is seriously my favourite breakfast most days of the week, especially at the moment, because it is just a tad frosty in Adelaide, South Australia at the moment.

Traditional rolled oats with selected mixed fruit, nuts and honey. My very lovely lady makes up this mix herself, although it is pretty easy to whip up. Straight to the Central Markets if you are in Adelaide.

Here's how I like to make it and the ingredients, calories, etc.:

3/4 cup of rolled oats (about 70gms)
1 1/2 cups of water
- Cook this for 3:30 on high in the microwave or on the stove top if you prefer.

Add the following:

Ingredient Measurement Calories Kilojoules
premix raw nuts 30g 189 789
dried coconut 3g 20 83
dried apricot 3g 7 30
sultanas 3g 10 40
yoghurt coated sultanas 3g 14 59
rolled oats 70g 270 1127
honey 3 t 61 255

You can add pretty much anything you want to this, I often have this or with just banana and honey, but make up your depending on what you like. I like it with extra honey (organic) so don't panic if you do too. If you are on a strict calorie intake just allow for it elsewhere, or get in the gym and work it off!

Tip: Toasted hazelnut meal (lightly toasted in a dry fry pan) sprinkled over this is also pretty damn tasty.
