3 Portions of Fruit Sorted, that too for Breakfast


Some friends of mine are constantly travelling to Ubud and punishing me by posting photographs of their fruity breakfast bowls. And they have been making me salivate. As the temperature rises here in India, the cold fruit and yogurt bowls are more tempting than ever.

This one here is berry involved and sorts our daily 3 fruit portion requirement easily. Nutrition concentrate and taste un-compromised, these bowls of goodness are ideal pre workout meals too. The fibre of choice for me was oats (rolled oats if made overnight, or if like me you are lazy then the regular oats work just as fine) and psyllium husk. These two things almost give this smoothie bowl a dessert like quality as they give texture and adds to the fibre consumption. What’s not to love.

1 cup frozen blackberries
1 cup frozen bananas
1 cup fresh strawberries
2 tbsp oats
1 cup thick yogurt/ coconut yogurt
1 tbsp psyllium husk
1 tbsp hemp powder
2 tbsp roasted pumpkin seeds

1. In a blender wiz together blackberries, bananas, half of the strawberries, oats, yogurt and hemp powder.
2. Stir in psyllium husk.
3. Pour over your favourite bowl and decorate with the half cup of strawberries sliced and the roasted pumpkin seeds.
4. Dig in

Poem – Where the Sidewalk Ends by Shel Silverstein

There is a place where the sidewalk ends
And before the street begins,
And there the grass grows soft and white,
And there the sun burns crimson bright,
And there the moon-bird rests from his flight
To cool in the peppermint wind.

Let us leave this place where the smoke blows black
And the dark street winds and bends.
Past the pits where the asphalt flowers grow
We shall walk with a walk that is measured and slow,
And watch where the chalk-white arrows go
To the place where the sidewalk ends.

Yes we’ll walk with a walk that is measured and slow,
And we’ll go where the chalk-white arrows go,
For the children, they mark, and the children, they know
The place where the sidewalk ends.
