I much prefer teaching to preaching, but this time I’m
attempting to do both, with the hope that you might introduce this delicious
breakfast bowl into your morning routine. I’m not sure if an apple a day really
does keep the doctor away, but I do know that being in the drive-thru line
every morning, doesn’t.
We’ve all heard that breakfast is the most important meal of
the day, which may or may not be true, but I’ve always found it to be the most
difficult meal of the day. There never
seems to be enough time, and so it’s easy to get into a rut, resorting to questionable
choices such as sugary cereal and milk, or fast-food breakfast sandwiches.
As far as specific ingredient choices go, I like to use chilled
Honey Crisp, or Fuji apples, and, as I mentioned in the clip, sheep’s milk is
my preferred yogurt. Some say it’s easier to digest, and it contains higher
amounts of linoleic acid, which apparently helps with fat loss, but I simply
prefer the taste. Just be sure to use a plain yogurt, since many flavored varieties
contain a shocking amount of sugar.
So, whether you try this to help with that
New Year’s resolution, or you’re just looking to add some variety into the
morning routine, I really do hope you give this Ben Franklin breakfast
bowl a try soon. Enjoy!
Ingredients for one portion:
1 cold, raw apple, cubed
6 ounces plain sheep’s milk yogurt
chopped nuts and/or additional seasonal fruit to garnish
