A few months back I read “How French Women Curb Cravings: This 5-Minute Breakfast” on then curiously made the recipe.

Et voila! The day starter was everything it promised to be: uber healthy, full of  “intestine-wringing benefits,” filling (I eat around 7:30 and don’t get hungry again until about 1pm) and absolutely delicious.

Merci beaucoup Mireille Guiliano for the recipe. It’s officially my go-to and we made this LEAFtv video is made in your honor!

Recipe: The French Start Breakfast

– 1/2 cup low fat greek yogurt
– 1 tsp flaxseed oil
– Juice of 1/2 lemon (I omit this because I start every morning with a cup of hot water with half a lemon)
– 1 tbsp crushed almonds (or walnuts)
– 2 tbsp raw, old fashion oats
– Honey or acai

1. Add all ingredients into a bowl.
2. Drizzle generously with honey.

P.S. How cute is the Song of Style for ELUXE VoiLA sweatshirt (similar available here)?

  1. Hey Geri, meyer lemon she uses is very sweet, that’s why it goes with this recipe. It pops the honey. You would definitely wanna omit the lemon otherwise.
