Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so why not make it the healthiest as well? Starting your day with goji berries can get you energized and ready to face the day with a good mood–it may even supplement your need for coffee every morning! Just by adding a little fruit to your morning meal may help make the day a lot better.
Instead of coffee in the morning, why not wake up with a healthy cup of tea? You can try to find some specialized tea bags either in your health foods section or online, but you can home brew it too, and know exactly what you’re drinking. You have several options if you decide to home brew. Either drop a few dried or fresh berries into a cup of hot water and let it steep, or steep the berries in an already made cup of tea. Steeping berries in a cup of green or pomegranate tea will ensure double the flavor and double the health benefits. Green tea will give you twice as much antioxidant power, and pomegranate can provide a super fruity drink to wake up with!
You could also use these berries in a nice bowl of cereal. A handful of dried goji berries could supplement a bowl of corn flakes instead of raisins. Between the calcium and D-fortified milk, iron-packed cereal, and berries having more antioxidants than raisins, this bowl of cereal is almost guaranteed to improve the quality of your morning.
Sometimes all you have time for in the morning is a piece of toast, though. So why not spread that toast with something that can get your morning started? If you can’t find goji jelly, you could still make it yourself just the same way you might make other berry jellies. Dried goji berries soaked in goji juice should make the optimum berries for your jelly. Spreading this on a piece of toast in the morning will make a tasty, healthy breakfast that you can eat on the go!
Goji berries can be the best way to wake up in the morning and get you ready to face the day. Just think of ways that you can incorporate them into your normal breakfast choices, even by dropping them into a bowl of Greek yogurt. Just a handful of berries could give you the kick you need to make today a great day.
