Menu of the Month March - Let's do Brunch (or Breakfast)!

For March our Menu of the Month focuses on what is often the ‘Cinderella’ of our daily meals, Breakfast! So let's remedy that and take a look at some really tasty, easy, healthy breakfast and brunch ideas.

Low-Fat Walnut, Apple & Cinnamon Granola
Low-Fat Walnut, Apple & Cinnamon Granola
During the week, breakfast can help provide a great foundation for a busy day ahead, whether at work or for children at school. Research which found people who ate breakfast tended to be more active during the remainder of the day in mostly light-intensity activity (American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, Apr 2014). Granola is a great choice for quick, easy weekday breakfasts and if you make your own you can make sure it is really healthy too, such as my Walnut, Apple & Cinnamon Granola. It's low-fat & low-cholesterol and packed full of heart-healthy ingredients such as oats, wholegrains and seeds but without any refined sugars. You can find this recipe and lots more healthy family breakfast ideas in my Easy Low Fat, Low Cholesterol Mediterranean Diet Cookbook.

This is a fruit salad but not as you know it, the dressed spinach leaves add a savoury twist.  If you've not yet tried a breakfast salad yet, check out my Gluten Free & Wheat Free Diet Brunch & Breakfast Recipe Cookbook for more fabulous Breakfast Salad ideas.
