Pumpkin pie for breakfast?

I still remember that time when I used to have a chocolate croissant and coffee for breakfast. I was starving by lunch time after that. It never really filled me up. Now my breakfasts are different – they are high in protein, gluten free and very different every day. But the most important thing is that they fill me up – it is like a fuel which you put in the car and which keep your car going till the next “gas station” on full speed and not just dragging there.
I have variety of grains for breakfast like those described in so many other my posts

Mix of wholegrain brown rice, corn, sorghum and buckwheat. 1/4 cup of uncooked cereal contains 4 g of dietary fiber and 4 g of protein. I buy them from Organic Supermarket of course. they are so cooled in my blog as Mighty Cereal – just love them.

Also I had a Big Day for organizing kitchen cupboards yesterday and I realized that I have a whole huge packet of Garbanzo and Fava Beans Flour. Hmm… Just thinking now what shall I use it for… Other then Socca of course.

There is still some few items I got recently from – what a surprise a LuLu hypermarket in Barsha – Lucuma Powder and Hemp Seeds. Both of this items I wanted to get for a long time and could not find them anywhere in Dubai. So how surprised I was to find them in LuLu?!?

New addition to the family of Super Foods in my pantry:

More about Lukuma . It has a sweet taste, great for avocado ice cream and rich in B vitamins.
More on Hemp Seeds hemp seeds reach in Omega 3, Omega 6; packed with essential amino acids, easy to digest; gluten free and cholesterol free. Just one word – super foods! Great to kiss in to cerela or sprinkle over the salads.

And down the line, my today’s breakfast – Famous Fro-Yo. All healthy goodies all over the world love it and having it hundred different ways! Mine is always different, but today is Pumpkin Pie Fro-Yo

Fro Yo is basically a mix of cold yogurt with protein powder and thinned out with a splash of milk or milk alternative of your choice. Today I mixed goat yogurt with 1/2 portion of Raw Organic Brown Rice Protein Powder, added 1 tbsp of almond butter, 2 tbsp of sesame seeds paste and thinned it out with goat milk. To make into pumpkin pie – just added 2 tbsp of home made pumpkin pure, 1 tsp of chia seeds (for omegas) and spiced it up with Pumpkin Spice Mix. I topped it up with some dry mulberries and dash of Yakon Syrup.

Tastes just like Pumpkin pie filling or the frozen yogurt with pumpkin pie flavor but way healthier! And of course sugar free and gluten free -)

Hope you also have healthy breakfast on the Weekend day.
