Low sugar granola

Breakfast tends to be a very high carb meal, traditionally cereal or toast. While these taste great, they won’t keep you full for long and they can put you on the blood sugar rollercoaster for the rest of the day. But some of my clients struggle with giving up their cereal for breakfast so this granola recipe keeps the usual granola ingredients but with less sugar to reduce any blood sugar spikes and dips. www.midlifemenu.com/recipes/low-sugar-granola

Toasted Nuts & Soy Seeds

These snacks are super easy to prep if you’ve already got the oven on for something else, like your dinner. The temperature doesn’t have to be exact as you can toast them for longer or shorter time depending on the temperature. I always make sure we’ve got a tub of both these snacks on hand. The nuts are great with fruit as a snack. The seeds can be used as snacks but also sprinkled on any dish that needs a salty hit or a crunchy texture, such as soups and salads. They’re great as part of your weekend prep to have in the cupboard for quick snacks during the week. www.midlifemenu.com/recipes/nuts-and-seeds

You can make them with all different nut or seed butters or even tahini. www.midlifemenu.com/recipes/dark-chocolate-peanut-butter-cups
