Get the right start to the day

We all know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It gives our brain that kick start we need.

But if you are anything like me, you're just trying to get everyone ready and out the door on time, which mean that sometimes breakfast gets missed.

So here is a great breakfast that you can prepare the day before, pack into a container and eat when you get to work.

Fruit Couscous with Low Fat Vanilla Yoghurt


1/2C Couscous
2 Oranges, juiced
2tbs Sultanas

2 Peaches (I used canned sliced peaches)
3tbs Water
2 heaped tbs Low fat vanilla yoghurt


In a saucepan combine orange juice, sultanas, water and bring to the boil. Remove the saucepan from the heat and add couscous & peaches (I also added a little of the juice from the canned peaches) - cover and set aside for about 10 minutes.

Serve half the couscous with the low fat vanilla yoghurt. The other half can be refrigerated.

This most definitely is a healthy, filling alternative to the sugary, over processed cereals that I usually serve up for breakfast.

The sultanas and juice from the canned peaches just add that right amount of sweetness.

I adapted this recipe from a recipe that aired on the Biggest Looser recently which I watched while eating my King Size Mars Bar & drinking my low cal Coke Zero!!
