Peanut Butter & Kiwi Breakfast Bowl

I strongly believe that preparation is the absolute key to a healthy lifestyle. Planning out your meals and workouts a few days in advance will help keep you motivated and on track. Your diet and workouts go hand in hand which is why it's important to allow plenty of time. A good breakfast is one that makes you feel amazing, one that's nutritious and keeps you going until lunchtime. Unhealthy snacking be gone! Oats are my go-to breakfast option most of the time and this is mainly because they are so easy to prepare and versatile. The list of toppings you can choose from is pretty much endless, it's all down to preference. Its a gorgeous, sunny day which calls for this peanut butter and kiwi breakfast bowl. 
It's been a while since I had the kiwifruit. There are a few health benefits associated with Kiwis and one of them like many other fruits and vegetables is Vitamin C. This vitamin is a crucial antioxidant and nutrient. Collagen (a hard and insoluble fibrous protein) which is the support system of the skin is reliant on Vitamin C. Kiwis have also been associated with better sleep in adults experiencing sleep problems (read the study Asia Pacific Journal of Clinical Nutrition). The kiwifruit has high potassium content which can help reduce high blood pressure. Their taste is a cross between nectarines, strawberries and bananas; where else can you get that kind of mix?
