This recipe is for a quick and easy breakfast or snack.
This satisfying and balanced recipe is high in carbohydrates, proteins and fats. Our bodies need these macronutrients every day to work properly, to build and repair muscles, and to keep you full until your next meal.
If you are new to intuitive eating, or are working on recovery from chronic dieting or disordered eating, trying out new recipes can be a way of learning to find foods that are nourishing as well as satisfying.
At Erica Leon Nutrition we will be experimenting and sharing various recipes to give ideas as you move forward in your intuitive eating journey.
