Every quince girl wants to look good and feel good on her big day. If you’re getting your body ready for your quince, winter formal or for some other special event, then eating healthy should be in top of your list. For starters, you should never, ever skip breakfast. Not only does eating breakfast provide you with energy, but it also kick starts your metabolism and keeps you from snacking on junk foods or binge eating throughout the day.
Check out these three easy low-fat and gluten-free breakfast ideas and make sure to stock up your fridge before your school week starts.
Oatmeal with Almond Milk
Oatmeal is really healthy, filling and super easy to make. If your are gluten-free, try Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free Rolled Oats with almond milk instead of water and add a dash of salt. To add some yumminess and to make your oatmeal even more filling, add a chopped banana, walnuts and a dash of cinnamon powder. For added sweetness, sprinkle some brown sugar on top.
Greek Yogurt Parfait
If you have never eaten Greek yogurt, you should! It’s not only lower in fat, carbs and sugar than regular yogurt, but it keeps you fuller longer, is easy on your tummy (no bloating!) and has tons of probiotics which are good for your immune system and digestion. Top your Greek yogurt with some strawberries and blueberries. If you want a bit more sweetness, add a small handful of gluten-free granola such as Udi’s Gluten-Free Granola (sold at grocery stores and at Target).
For those mornings when you wake up late and have only have 2 minutes to eat breakfast, just pour yourself a bowl of Chex cereal. Chex has several yummy gluten-free cereals and they’re available at most grocery stores. My favorite are the Cinnamon Chex and Chocolate Chex.
