Okay, if I’m going to do a regular recipe post, the new rule is that I have to try the recipe the day BEFORE I plan to post it.  Everything I tried to do this morning was a flop — probably because I forgot to buy some key ingredients.  I’m sure there is a definite connection there!  Never mind.  I had something really yummy for breakfast this morning and decided to publish THAT recipe instead.  It’s fool-proof, which means I was able to make it successfully.

Cinnamon Apple Crunch

1 chopped apple

1/2 cup plain, unsweetened yogurt

1/4 cup low/low medium glycemic cereal like Kashi GoLean or All Bran

Drizzle of honey

Cinnamon to taste

Mix it up and eat.  Even I can’t mess up those directions!  This recipe is satisfying and provides fiber, protein and vitamins.  The apple helps lower the glycemic value, as does the cinnamon.  Besides that, it is crunchy and you feel as if you are actually eating something — which not all diet recipes accomplish.

Do you have a favorite low glycemic recipe?  I would love some help from my readers. This is my weak area, but it is important.  One reason we have trouble staying on a healthy plan is that we tend to have too few options in our menus.  It’s hard to see others chow down on tasty-looking food while we graze on our raw veggies.  Having good, healthy, (preferably easy) choices can make the difference between success and discouragement.

Eating to live and living for Christ,
