There’s no doubt that the Mediterranean diet is one of the best in terms of flavor and health benefits. Our Mediterranean diet breakfast recipes are a perfect way to start your day with plenty of energy and feeling good.
‘Pa amb tumaca’ (Bread with tomato)
Cut a small loaf of wholemeal bread in half, toast it and rub with half a clove of garlic. Cut a tomato in half and rub on the bread, pressing firmly so the flesh of the tomato sticks to the bread. Drizzle with Carbonell extra virgin olive oil and add a pinch of salt. An ideal everyday recipe.
Wash it down with a glass of orange juice and add an apple for a complete breakfast.
Yogurt with oats
This is one of the most protein-rich Mediterranean diet breakfast recipes. Put a pot of low-fat yogurt in a bowl, add oats and diced seasonal fruit. If it’s too thick, add a little skimmed milk and stir it in.
You can enjoy this breakfast with a black coffee.
Homemade pancakes with red fruits
Put one and a half cups of skimmed milk, 3 eggs, 2 tablespoons of sugar, 1 cup of whole wheat flour and 1 tablespoon of EVOO into a bowl. Mix the ingredients well. When the mixture is well mixed, pour a small amount into a hot non-stick frying pan and tip the pan so that the mixture covers the bottom. Turn it over when it has set on one side. Serve your pancakes with red fruits and some honey. No doubt about it, this is the stand-out recipe for the weekend, when you’re likely to have more time for cooking.
Mediterranean diet breakfast recipes need at least one serving of fruit to make a complete breakfast. Pick your favorite recipe to start the day with a smile and a lot of energy!
