The Ben Franklin Breakfast Bowl

Share on:

As Ben Franklin used to say, ‘An apple a day keeps the doctor away.’ To get a daily dose, I enjoy one of these beautiful breakfast bowls almost every morning. I sometimes garnish with diced persimmon and roasted almonds, but there’s no need for honey or dried fruit - it’s very satisfying without the added sugar.



Step: 1

Place your knife about 1/4 inch from the stem of the apple and cut downwards. Place apple cut side-down and continue cutting straight down all around the core. Discard core and cut apple pieces into cubes.

Step: 2

Transfer apple cubes to a bowl. Spoon on yogurt and add granola.

Eating good breakfast to continue the day had become a fabulous habit. It’s a fabolous way to start my 24 hours off healthfully. The sugar hit from the fruit wakes me up and bring me energy to take on the morning. Sugar is more vilified as the root of all disease, but fruit is also loaded with fibre, which is best for your stomach system and helps keep you feel full longer, and not want likely grab a side food out of the vending machine before break .

Make fruit a at 7.00 clock habit is simple . Easy as put the sweetness in your fridge next to the milk or on the table next to your grain bowl , or beside your coffee maker or tea kettle — somewhere where you’ll find it. Before you eat the rest of your breakfast , eat your fruit. If you’re not usually a breakfast person.
