New Year Begins with a Healthy Breakfast

First of all wish you a very Happy New Year. Thank you so much for loving my yummy and mushy dessert recipes. After a grand dinner on New Year’s Eve, it’s better to munch on something healthy on the brand new day of the year. Isn’t it? A great year begins with a filling, healthy as well as yummy breakfast. Eating healthy throughout the year may not be our New Year resolution but a healthy beginning on 1st January, 2015 is always welcomed. These are some of the yummy recipes, this time not prepared by me but mom. But they are pretty simple and even a novice can prepare them. Eating the food cooked by your mom has its own charm and I hope everyone agrees with it.

Healthy Stuffed Wheat Tortillas

Healthy Stuffed Wheat Tortillas

Healthy Tortillas (Whole Wheat or Rice Tortilla with Grilled Chicken Guacamole) – Though my mom prepared wheat tortillas, people allergic to gluten can go for rice tortilla as well. Grilled chicken breasts with chunky guacamole is a great option. Guacamole is an avocado-based dip. Cilantro, lemon juice and pepper give this guacamole a tangy and spicy kick. Nevertheless the hotness quotient can be managed accordingly. This rich filling if baked for a minute, gives an ultimate crispy and crunchy treat.

Low Calorie Lychee Shake

Low Calorie Lychee Shake

Lite Shake (Lychee and Coconut Shake) – Breakfast is incomplete without a shake. A low-calorie shake adds smile on everyone’s face. Low-calorie lychee and coconut shake sounds amazing. A blend of my favorite fruit, lychee with coconut water really made my day. This fruit contains flavonoids in the pulp that helps in preventing some fatal and lethal diseases such as cancer. Coconut water is itself a very refreshing health drink. It helps you in reducing weight and gives you glowing skin. It is also a remedy for hangover. I’m sure everyone must have had lot of drink on New Year’s Eve.

Fruit Treat

Fruit Treat

Fruity Kick (Split Banana Fruit Treat) – Including fruits in your breakfast is always a healthy option. Banana is my favorite fruit. This yummy fruitful kick was a real surprise. A salsa of orange, strawberries, kiwi and ginger to serve with a banana split along with strawberry yogurt as a topping on it, is a brilliant idea. Well now I can say that the breakfast was not only an excellent beginning for the day but the entire year. So thumbs up for my mom’s yummy treat.

Happy New Year
