If you are like me, you have started the New Year with plenty of health goals! One of my many goals is to lose some weight this year. Well, one of the tips that I have included in my weight loss journey is to eat a healthier breakfast that includes healthy proteins.
My Caramelized Banana Oatmeal with Pomegranates and Blueberries for breakfast is also a great breakfast cereal. How about my Jamaican Cornmeal Porridge, Buckwheat Porridge, and Banana Porridge.

Health Benefits Of Almond Milk
Almond milk is nutritious, low in calories, it enriched store-bought almond milk contains protein, calcium, iron, vitamin A, vitamin D, vitamin E, riboflavin, B12, Zinc, magnesium, it is cholesterol free, without any saturated fats and only contains 90 calories per serving.
Our bodies are constantly working to maintain health, our skin, hair, and nails are constantly being replenished daily. Our bones and tissues are constantly replacing old tissues with new. The body requires protein to properly function in repairing and maintaining a healthy vibrant body.
After a long night’s sleep (fast), the body requires a re-supply of the nutrition it burnt through while sleeping, in the form of protein, carbohydrate, fat, vitamin and minerals. Eating a healthy breakfast containing protein is a great way to supply the body with the necessary nutrients it requires to properly function.
Studies have shown that eating protein for breakfast leads to a sustained feeling of fullness compared to other meals.

Hi Michelle, l sent you an email on your “contact me”page. I am not receiving your new recipes in my inbox and l already checked my spam. I tried several different emails and still don’t receive them. Can you check from your side what the problem may be? I use your recipes often and l miss getting the new recipes.
Thank you Zory, I’ll definitely let my web developer know.
Wow, your photos are absolutely GORGEOUS! Loved being a part of this Silk campaign, it’s full of so many inspirational recipes.
Gonna try this, but as a side note, I tried almond creamer in my coffee and it’s very sweet, there’s a Silk Soy Coffee creamer that’s more to my taste.
Zrinka, hope you enjoy!
This seems healthy does not seem like a high protein breakfast to me. How much is in the almond milk? The ones I look at only have about one gram of protein.
Gloria, I’m taking into account the quinoa, hemp seeds, almond butter, chia seeds as well.
I love using quinoa as a dinner side dish, but now I need to try it for breakfast! This sounds like an amazing way to start the day…and all of those fresh berries are just calling my name! Thanks for sharing! #client
Awesome David, hope you get to try it. You will love it!
Your recipes are awesome! Breakfast is no longer boring in my home, thank you. I buy Silk milk all the time.
Awesome Jolene, so glad you are enjoying breakfast!
