Having a healthy breakfast like this gluten free macadamia granola can set you up for an energised day ahead. This recipe will keep you full for hours with steady energy to feel focused and vibrant for your day ahead.

Key Nutrition For Breakfast

There are a few key points to consider when choosing a breakfast option that will keep you sustained and not leave you hungry one hour later and craving snacks at 9am.

As I share in my Online Nutrition Program you want to make sure your breakfast has the key nutrients, protein and healthy fat. These are going to keep you fuller for longer, provide steady energy and help to keep sugar cravings at bay.

For example, when it comes to breakfast you can get protein from foods like eggs, nuts, seeds, nut butters or for convenience protein powders (provided they are a good quality brand without additives). Likewise you can also get good sources of healthy fat from nuts, seeds, nut butters as well as coconut yoghurt.

To illustrate, in this homemade gluten free macadamia granola recipe I include nuts and seeds (including my absolute favourite Australian macadamias) to not only give it the perfect crunch but also provide a source of nutrition and these key nutrients, protein and good fats.
