If one of your resolutions is to lose weight, one of the first habits you’ll want to begin is eating a healthy breakfast daily. Eating breakfast will give you the energy and brain power to take on your day. Furthermore, studies have shown that a healthy breakfast will provide satiety which will help you avoid over eating during the remainder of the day.
If you’re not accustomed to eating breakfast, here’s an easy recipe for you to try. It’s the Dukan Diet Oat Bran Gallette:
1 egg white
2 tablespoons of oat bran
2 tablespoons of fat-free plain Greek yogurt
1 teaspoon of Splenda (for a sweet pancake)
Pepper, herbs and/or chopped garlic (for a savory pancake)
In a small bowl, beat the egg white until it’s foamy. In a separate bowl, combine the oat bran, yogurt, and sweetener or seasonings. Add the egg white and mix until its consistency is smooth like pancake batter. Pour the batter into a nonstick pan and cook over medium heat for 5 minutes until golden. Flip the gallette and cook on the other side. Total preparation time about 10 minutes.
The Dukan pancake is a terrific source of protein and fiber and it’s quick and easy to make. Pair it with an apple or berries for a filling and healthy breakfast.
