4. Almond Bran Crunch

One of my favourites! Take your ordinary bran cereal up a notch by topping with almonds and Greek yogurt. Combine 3/4 cup of bran cereal with low-fat Greek yogurt and a small handful of almonds. For a little sweetness top with fresh blueberries.

5. Cashew Maple Yogurt

This is a breakfast bowl is complete with loads of protein and the right carbohydrates and healthy fats so you feel fuller for longer. With a touch of maple syrup offering a natural sweetness to the tart Greek yogurt.
Mix 3/4 cups of multigrain cereal, 8 chopped up cashews and 3/4 plain low fat Greek yogurt. Drizzle with half a teaspoon of maple syrup to enjoy.
