A Healthy Breakfast Recipe for the New Year

During the rest of the year it’s nearly impossible to get the whole family together for breakfast; but during the holidays, big, unhealthy breakfasts become a tradition.  With a focus on health and wellness this season, give your family the festive breakfast they want with fewer calories and less fat. I’ve made it a goal of mine to inform my patients that a healthy diet and exercise routine is essential to enhancing your overall quality of life and is also beneficial for maintaining long-lasting cosmetic surgery results. Try this low calorie banana, strawberry, and chocolate hazelnut crêpe recipe that I enjoy making for my family.

Serves: 4-5

Ingredients:

1 package of pre-made, French-style crêpes

1 package of fresh strawberries, sliced

2 bananas, sliced

3 Tbsp. low-carb chocolate hazelnut spread, melted

2 Tbsp. low-fat whipped cream

 

Directions:

Step 1: If frozen, thaw the crêpes overnight in your refrigerator.

Step 2: Place one thawed crêpe in the microwave for 15-20 seconds on high; flip over and microwave for an additional 8-10 seconds. Repeat until all the crêpes have been warmed.

Step 3: Transfer the heated crêpe to a dish and fill each with your desired amount of low-fat chocolate hazelnut spread, and sliced bananas and strawberries. Roll or fold crêpe and top with a small amount of low-fat whipped cream.
