Yogurt with berries. This is a super easy healthy breakfast idea that can help you stay fit, healthy and lose weight! It’s not genius, but just in case somebody can’t figure it out – I’m sharing this little recipe.
This breakfast is gluten-free, made in 3 minutes and super delicious. And I must say I have never been a fan of yogurt.
But this thing changed me.
For me yogurt was just something I used in a nice yogurt-garlic sauce like this one, but never really more than that.
My whole life I thought yogurt with anything for breakfast is disgusting. I don’t know why, I’m weird. I just know: it’s no pancakes.
But it all changed a few years ago when I started reading about gut health and about how you really need to keep that gut flora healthy or else this could ruin your health and your life.
Never in my life had I, ever, thought about gut flora.
I knew something was going on in there, but who knew what.
A LITTLE INTRODUCTION OF THE GUT COMMUNITY
In short: everyone has bacteria in their gut, whether you like it or not – it’s buzzing in there.
And there are good and bad bacteria. Pretty much like in real life with people. Unfortunately when we eat too many processed foods and too much meat we starve the good bacteria and feed the bad bacteria.
When the bad bacteria are fed all the time they don’t get fat like us, instead they get stronger and multiply. Then they start making toxins that get into the body and go to different tissues, among these – the skin.
And then little by little you stop looking so fabulous and start looking like you’ve been up for 3 weeks in a row – dull skin, bags under your eyes, possibly some acne – in summary not your best look.
And that’s just a very tiny problem compared to all the damage those bad bacteria could do to your health. Let’s just say they weaken the immune system and from there everything goes bad – from various infections to cancer.
How do we solve this problem?
The one thing we need to do is bring more good bacteria (probiotics) into the gut, so they can fight off the bad guys. It’s their thing. We also need to feed those bacteria with their favorite foods – whole natural plant foods with lots of prebiotics.
Then they can grow, get stronger, multiply and fight harder for their territory in the gut.

And that’s why a little probiotic yogurt loaded with good bacteria is always a good idea. If you like other fermented foods like sauerkraut, kimchi and I don’t know what more, those are also great.
In fact probiotics from plants might even be better for you, if you’re lactose intolerant, but you have to make your own choice.
For me yogurt is perfect. I actually started loving it, once I started eating it more often. Just within a few days I couldn’t get enough of it. And this recipe very much describes my favorite way to eat it right now.
This breakfast is light, creamy, satisfying, beyond easy, quick and on top it’s gluten-free.
