Greek Yogurt with Berries and Paleo Granola
This breakfast full of sunshine, dark, red colors and fruity berry flavor is one of my favorite breakfasts of all times. It is rich in vitamins and antioxidants that keep you young, fills you up for a long time and the best benefit for those of you who suffer from PCOS and insulin resistance: It does not spike blood sugar.
Why It Does Not Spike Your Blood Sugar Levels
The best way for anyone to find out if certain foods do spike your blood sugar or not is to buy a glucometer and measure your blood sugar after a meal. If you don’t have a glucometer or are feeling uncomfortable with pinching your fingertip with a needle 4 times after a meal finding out about the GI (Glycemic Index) of a certain food is a good alternative to finding out about how much it spikes one’s blood sugar levels.
Berries have a low GI by nature and don’t spike blood sugar. Greek yogurt does not have a lot of carbs and is rich in protein and fats which lead to slow digestion on no blood sugar spikes. Paleo granola does not contain any carbohydrate rich grains, but a lot of nuts and seeds such as coconut or pumpkin that are high in protein and fat. The amount of sugar in the form of banana, honey or maple syrup added to paleo granola varies, but is usually low.
Do You Have 5 Minutes? Then Let’s Make This Delicious Breakfast!
You need some organic Greek yogurt or if you wanna go vegan or full paleo go and get some – or even better, make some – coconut yogurt. Same applies to the paleo granola – you can either buy it or make it yourself. Finally, you need some fresh cherries and blackberries.
The ingredients are too expensive for you? Simply replace the berries with some frozen blueberries and some fresh apples and use crushed almonds as a substitute for the granola.
Pour the yogurt into a breakfast bowl, wash the berries, cut the cherries in halves and remove the pit. Cover the yogurt with the berries and some paleo granola. Enjoy!
