Question
Posted by: Klaudija | 2011/03/24

Breakfast Option

Would this be healthy breakfast:

Ingredients
250 gram dried fruit with stones removed
1½  cups strong hot rooibos (red bush) tea
Cinnamon quill
Cardomon pod (optional)
Sugar to taste (optional)

Method
Use a heat-resistant container.
Cover the fruit with the desired amount of hot tea, add spices and cover the container.
Leave overnight.
If it is not plump enough, boil the fruit the next morning. Add extra water if required.
Optional: add sugar to taste shortly before removing the saucepan from the stove. However, the fruit is already sweet, and it is not really necessary.
Serve with plain white yogurt.

Dear Klaudija
Dried fruit is an excellent food being rich in nutrients like beta-carotene and dietary fibre. 250g of cooked dried fruit will provide you with 1225 kJ (please note that this is the kJ content of 1 cup of the cooked fruit and not of the dried fruit before cooking) plus 125 ml plain yoghurt (321 kJ) will provide 1546 kJ per breakfast, which is slightly less than the 2100 kJ recommended per meal for slimming. The kJ content of dried fruit is very high. For example, 250 g of dried fruit salad would contain 2528 kJ before cooking. If you find that eating such a lot of fibre causes a runny tummy then decrease the quantity of dried fruit that you eat.
