My Favorite Breakfast!!!

So as I mentioned yesterday, I am going a new direction with this blog and I will now be sharing all sorts of crazy things with you!!  These are all things that I have learned over the years and have incorporated into my life or just really cook or interesting things I have found.  Today I am going to be talking about my new favorite breakfast!
MBC (Magic Breakfast Cream) – Trumpets sound here… :)
This stuff is amazing!  I read a book last year by Mireille Guiliano called French Women Don’t Get Fat and immediately fell in love and bought a used copy at Edward McKays for like $4 (savings!!!).  I have read this book about 4 times and listened to it on tape once (yes, I am that kind of nerd).  I love this book because it is almost a lifestyle book than a diet book (I hate the word diet) and she goes into detail about her life and her strip abroad to America and how she came back looking like a sack of potatoes…  Surprising I know…
Anywho, Mrs. Guiliano has come out with a new book called French Women Don’t Get Fat Cookbook.  There are so many amazing simple recipes in here that I can’t wait to share with you but the MBC recipe comes first.  It seems that this is an old family recipe of her Tante’s who depended on it for healthy weight loss strategy after over indulging on vacations.
The trick with this recipe as with any of my recipes is good quality ingredients.  Please do not use Dannon for this, this is your first meal of the day!  Splurge!!  Seriously spend the $3 on a large container of yogurt!!  Brown Cow is the best for this recipe and yes I get the FULL FAT with the CREAM ON TOP!!!  Yum!!!  Trust me, you will be fine…
This serves 1:
4 to 6 tablespoons of yogurt
1 teaspoon flaxseed oil or sesame oil
1 to 2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon honey
      (local and organic)
2 tablespoons finely ground cereal
      (with zero sugar)
2 teaspoons finely ground walnuts
      (or other nut)
1.Put the yogurt in a bowl and add the oil.  Mix well.  Add the lemon juice and mix well.  Add the honey and mix well.  (It is important to add each ingredient one at a time and mix well to obtain a homogenous preparation)

2. Finely grind the cereal and walnuts (I use a small food processor and I do this in advance, for the week and store it in the freezer)  Add to the yogurt mixture and mix well.

If I lost some of you at the addition of the Flax Seed oil, I urge you to try it anyway.  You really can’ t taste it and the benefits far outweigh your apprehension to trying new things – promise!!  If you would like to learn more about Flax Seed Oil click here
This recipe has helped with my feeling bloated or just plain icky and has also helped with regularity although I didn’t know I had an issue… :)
